The Champions League is back this week and Real Madrid will look to complete the job that they started at home by holding of Napoli at Naples in the second leg of their Round of 16 Champions League clash. This game should be a good one as both sides are of exceptional skill and talent and I am expecting Napoli to give it a huge fight in front of their home crowd.

Napoli are one of the best attacking teams in Europe and the likes of Dres Merten and Lorenzo Insingne are dominating other teams at the moment Furthermore, they have a solid midfield and skillful backline which will cause Madrid a lot of challenges like they did in the first leg of the tie.

Real Madrid on the other hand are a class act but they will know that they might get in trouble if they are not careful. At the moment, the Spanish Giants are comfortably placed with a 2 goal advantage but Napoli does have an away goal and they are not out of the game yet. The big names should be back and Benzema seems to have picked up some form so I think we should be getting a good performance.

I think we can expect a close game since Real Madrid will try that and I think Napoli will manage to get a draw. I think 1-1 or 2-2 are the most likely outcomes and we are getting a good price on this so this is by far the best bet. Other than this, both teams to score is the other good bet and I think this has some good value in it as well.
