Goals galore as Bayern, Real dominate ECL

Antonio JonesFeb 16, 2017

Napoli took a surprise lead through Lorenzo Insigne, who was played through by Hamsik, before brazenly whipping the ball around a questionably-positioned Keylor Navas from outside the area.

However, Real were level 10 minutes later as Karim Benzema head home Dani Carvajal's cross from the right flank for his 51st Champions League goal.

Napoli had a goal disallowed for offside in the 80th.

Understandably the Real stalwart treasures that strike and although he has no plans to retire any time soon says he may swap numbers for his final season to mark his greatest moment at the club.

There was hardly time to take a breath in the opening five minutes of action as Real Madrid continued to force the issue, but Napoli were a danger when they had the chance to counter through Callejon, Dries Mertens and Insigne.


Napoli's sensational free-scoring form that has seen them reel off an 18-game unbeaten run has seen the Italians' hopes of shocking the holders soar. He is very strong and concentrated on playing again.

As confident as Napoli were, they weren't ideal. The result? Two goals in the first ten minutes of the half to blow the match wide open.

It was an excellent response from Real Madrid, who were threatening to let frustration undo them towards the end of the first half. We're going step by step and game by game. His rise from obscurity has been based around a positive, attacking philosophy, and the former economist stuck to that idea by naming exciting but inexperienced youngsters Piotr Zielinski and Amadou Diawara in midfield on Wednesday.

Mertens leads the betting for Napoli along with Arkadiusz Milik, and the Polish striker, who is returning from a serious injury, is offered at the same price.
