UEFA Champions League – Round of 16, Second Leg

Venue: Stadio San Paolo, Naples.
Per AS, Real manager Zinedine Zidane made a number of changes for Los Blancos' 4-1 La Liga victory over Eibar on Saturday in order to keep some key players fresh for the Napoli clash.
Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Isco were all on the bench, Cristiano Ronaldo was omitted from the squad due to "a niggle" and Gareth Bale was suspended.
The majority of those absentees should return to the starting lineup on Tuesday.
Possible Napoli XI: Reina; Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Zielinski, Diawara, Hamsik; Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
Possible Real XI: Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
Napoli vs Real Madrid: Head to Head Statistics
This will be the 4th game the two teams are playing against each other and Los Blancos are unbeaten in the previous games wining twice and drawn once.
Also this will be the second time they are both playing on San Paolo, the first game ended in draw while Madrid’s two wins have been at Santiago Bernabeu.
Napoli vs Real Madrid: prediction
Madrid are slight favorites in this game despite playing away from home, they are aiming to be the first team to retain the Champions League trophy
Los Blancos have lost just 1 out of their last 9 away games in the Champions League and the last win at Roma was their first 1 in the last 9 games on Italian soil.
With theses good recent records, we expect a win from Zidane’s men and we expect at least 3 goals just like the first Leg at Napoli.
