Napoli 1 vs 1 Real Madrid
Bale gets into the Napoli penalty area once again, but Koulibaly stands up the Wales international brilliantly. He uses his strength well to force the Real Madrid winger out to the flank, before shepherding the ball behind for a goal-kick. Great defending.
It is all Napoli in these early stages, with Real Madrid struggling to mount anything more than fleeting counter-attacks. There haven’t been too many clear-cut chances to speak of, but the traffic has only been going in one direction. Sarri will want his side to continue with this urgency, they need a quick goal.
Sergio Ramos makes a vital interception on the edge of his own penalty area, as Callejon looked to burst beyond his compatriot. Real Madrid head up the other end and release Bale down the right, but the Welshman can only just about wriggle free of Ghoulam to deliver a cross. Benzema is the target of the eventual delivery, but it comes to nothing, with the Frenchman bumping into Ronaldo.
We are underway in the first half in Naples! Napoli need to score early on to send Real Madrid reeling, but an away goal from Los Blancos could well settle this as a contest. The atmosphere is fantastic, and this should be a good one.
