Napoli vs Real Madrid Match Preview and Team News
Napoli will host Real Madrid in the second leg of the 2023/24 Champions League on Tuesday. Both teams won the opening game in Group C, and are currently tied on points. But Napoli has a better goal difference. Napoli defeated Braga with a score of 1:2 and started at the right pace. Now they will look for one more victory to strengthen their chances of reaching the round of 16. One interesting thing is that Napoli have not lost a match at home in this competition since 2017 and since then they have won nine out of 13 matches. Piotr Zielinski plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Giacomo Raspadori is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Pierluigi Gollini (Hand Injury) and Juan Jesus (Biceps femoris muscle injury) will not be able to play for Napoli boss Rudi Garcia.
Real Madrid is also coming off an impressive win in La Liga. Carlo Ancelotti’s team won away from Granada 0:3 and is currently first in the table. Los Blancos won the last two matches, scoring as many as five goals, without conceding shots. This was a great response after losing to rivals Atlético a week ago. The Madrid players seemed unstable in the opening match against Union Berlin, but they managed to win at home 1-0. Madrid beat Napoli both home and away in the second round of the 2016/17 season, with both matches ending 3-1. Vinicius Junior plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Aurelien Tchouameni is an experienced midfielder, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from him. Carlo Ancelotti is one of the best trainers in the world, the fans adore him, he has brought a lot of joy to the club.

Arda Güler (Muscle Injury), Thibaut Courtois (Ruptured cruciate ligament) and Éder Militão (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
