Going to need a solid defensive performance if Napoli want to get anything from this game.

Napoli can beat Real Madrid, yes! They are highest goal scoring team in Serie A and lost just 4 in 27 games. Good attacking side and a typical Italian defensive tactically who are not easy to break at home.

I think it's Madrid who are going to need a solid defensive performance xD

Real will just swing in cross after cross after cross. It's obvious that is all they practice during training considering the enormous lack of fluidity and balance in their overall play. 

Only game plan, swing it in and hope it lands on either Ronaldo, Ramos, Bale, Benzema, or Varane.

Napoli do have a chance, they can score 2 goals in their home...hopefully they keep a cleansheet too

Unless BBC is having a off day, I don't see us not scoring here. We dominated Napoli for almost the entire game in the first leg and could have been 4 or 5 up easily.

Real are conceding like crazy at the moment. Took a couple of late goals last week to rescue a draw at home against Las Palmas

Can't remember they last conceded 3 at home as well but regardless it shows how weak they are defensively. When you have Marcelo and Carvajal bombing up providing width to get a million crosses in it'll always leave gaps at the back. 

Still think they'll come away with a win here though. At worst a score draw.

1:0 Dries Mertens. Lovely attack, but Real's defence looked terrible. Game on!

Napoli are the most tattooed side in the competition.

Mertens has easily been better than both Eden and DeBruyne

How Napoli aren't winning by three goals I will never know.

GOal Ramos! Equaliser on the night and the superb header from Ramos restores the 2-goal advantage.

Real again with a cross. Rinse and repeat. 

 

Hamsik has given the ball away more than one occasion.

Ramos with a brace. Deflected by Mertens. Game over.

Ramos is the definition of big game player. No one tops him xD

Drogba with 9 goals in 9 finals begs to differ

Fair, but for a centre back it's pretty incredible what he does.

He's a game winner but by no means is he a solid defender.

Agree. Pepe when he decides to play football and not WWE is the better defender. 

 

Two set piece goals, one rebound goal. To be honest the score line doesn't reflect the game, we were dominated for the most part of the match and it is worrying, this is our best eleven and we can't control and create anything. We will absolutely get annihilated if we play like this against Barca or Bayern.

Napoli shot themselves in the foot in the first half when they could've easily been 3 up.

Nevermind... I wonder what dross will be left over for the quarters that Real can be offered.

Nailed on to be Leicester if they get past Sevilla.

Without a doubt.  Let's see who gets through and we can all place a bet amongst each other because the bookies won't be offering much.

Had uni work to do but watched because I seriously felt Real could struggle. Napoli were totally dominant and looked superb but wasted a couple of openings and at just 1-0 I had an uneasy feeling.

Then Ramos scored the first header and you could tell it was going to be one of those Real performances. 

Glad I tuned out and got some work done rather than watching the last two goals.
