Real Madrid V Napoli

Wednesday 15th February 2017
19.45 Kick Off on BT Sport 1 available with GibSat

Surprisingly Real Madrid failed to win their group in this seasons champions league, they finished runners up to Borussia Dortmund in Group F, they won 3 and drew 3 finishing on 12 points, 2 points behind Dortmund.

They are doing well in La Liga and they find themselves on top of the pile, 1 point ahead of rivals Barcelona and they have played 2 games less.

Last time out they comfortably seen off Osasuna away from home 3-1, Goals from Ronaldo, Isco and Lucas got the goals for Madrid.

A big worry for Madrid is that Ballon D’or winner Ronaldo suffered a leg injury in their last match and had to sit out training on Monday. Gareth Bale returned to injury this week but it will be too soon for him to take part. Danilo is the only other doubtful player for Madrid.

Napoli managed to win Group B ahead of 2nd placed SL Benfica. Napoli recorded 3 wins, 2 draws and a loss finishing on 11 points, 3 points clear.

They are currently in 3rd in Serie A 2 points behind Roma in 2nd and 9 behinds leaders Juventus.

Last time out in the league they managed a comfortable 2-0 win over Genoa at home. Goals from Zielinski and Giaccherini got the goals for the home side.

Napoli are almost at full strength going into this tie with Striker Arkadiusz Milik the only doubt for the sky blues.

Real Madrid can be backed @6/10 with Bet Stars, the draw is @7/2 with a few of the firms and Napoli can be backed @11/2 with Bet365.

I think the @6/10 for Madrid is a very good price, I will have a punt on that, I will also back Real Madrid HT Real Madrid FT @29/20 with Coral.
