Napoli vs Real Madrid Prediction

Napoli vs Real Madrid Betting Tip and Prediction. In the second leg of the 1/8 finals in the UEFA Champions League, Napoli host Real Madrid at Stadio San Paolo. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Napoli vs Real Madrid.

Napoli failed to make good result, after Real Madrid beat them 3-1 in the first match of the UEFA Champions League, so they have to give their maximum in order to go through in the 1/4 finals. The result of 2-0 would guarantee home side to reach the next phase of this competition, but they have to hit the net two times, while on the other side they have to make clean sheet. In the first leg, Napoli started game very good and managed to score first, but Spanish Giant woke up and scored 3 goals. In the last Serie A game Napoli beat AS Roma 1-2 at Olimpico, so they are in a good form and they will try to make another good performance and try to beat Real Madrid. “The pressure is all on Madrid. They are the world champions, the richest club, the best, so they have to qualify. However, our fans are world champions as well – and all of Europe will see that.” – said their Maurizio Sarri, Napoli coach, according to

Real Madrid made good result against Napoli upfront their supporters, so they want to give their best in order to qualify in the Quarter finals of the Champions League. In LaLiga they won only two of their last four games, so FC Bareclona moved up on the top of the table and have one point more, but Real Madrid have one match less so the title race will be more than interesting. Good news for Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane is that Gareth Bale has recovered from an injury and will be in the first eleven. Their best player and star Cristiano Ronaldo was rested in the last LaLiga game against Eibar 1-4, so he will be fresh for the match against Italians. Interesting fact is that Real Madrid have now scored in 45 consecutive games across all competitions, breaking Barcelona’s all-time Spanish record, so they will be fully motivated to make another good performance and hit the net once more.
