Real Madrid finished the group phase of the UEFA Champions League at the second position and they will host Napoli on Wednesday in the first leg of the 1/8 finals. Team from Madrid have managed to won two of the last three Champions league competitions and they are one of the main candidate to lift the trophy. Their coach Zidane has announced before the start of the season that Real Madrid’s priority for this season is to win LaLigathey want to try to win this competition again. They are doing good job so far and without any doubt they are favorites to go through, but it won’t be easy job for them because visitors are playing very good this season in Serie A.

The first leg is at home and we want to take advantage, to damage our opponents’ hopes – but obviously they can do the same to us.” – said their manager Zinédine Zidane.

Napoli finished the group phase of the Champions League at the top of the table, but they didn’t have many luck at draw, so in the 1/8 finals they will play against mighty Real Madrid. The Italian team is playing very good this season and their main goal is to finish the season in Top 3 in Serie A, but they want to make something in Europe. Visitors know that they are underdogs, but they have nothing to lose and they will try to do their best in order to make positive result at Santiago Bernabeu. Napoli last time lost in the October last year, when Juve beat them, so they are full of confidence and they will do their best in order to score at least.

We need to accept any result, but one thing I won’t accept is being scared.” – said their manager Maurizio Sarri.
