The Napoli team will challenge the Real Madrid team in a 2e ronde UEFA Champions League in Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Napoli on Tuesday, October 03, 2023. For streaming coverage of Napoli vs Real Madrid, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Napoli and Real Madrid will face off in a match full of prestige and high tension on the second matchday of Group C of the 2023/24 Champions League. This match will take place on Tuesday afternoon 3 October at Napoli’s San Paolo stadium. This is a decisive match for both teams to win the top position in the standings because they both have 3 points after winning on the first matchday.
Napoli is showing a stable and effective performance this season. Rudi Garcia’s team managed to become Serie A champions last season and are now chasing Juventus in the top flight. Napoli won 3 of the last 4 matches, including a 2-1 victory over Sporting Braga on the first matchday of the Champions League. If you look further, Napoli has only lost 1 of the last 17 matches.
Real Madrid also does not want to lose by showing good performance in the two competitions La Liga and Champions League. Ancelotti’s team managed to recover after losing 1-3 to Atletico in the Madrid derby by achieving convincing wins over Las Palmas and Girona.
What’s interesting, in the match against Girona which they won 3-0 at home in Week 8 of La Liga last weekend, Vinicius has recovered from injury and Bellingham continues to shine on the front lines. On the first matchday of the Champions League, Real Madrid also won 2-0 at home.
If you look at the meeting record, Real Madrid has reason to be confident when they visit Napoli. The reason is, in the two previous meetings, they always beat Napoli with a landslide score of 3-1. The last time the two teams faced off was in the last 16 of the Champions League in the 2016/17 season, when Real Madrid won 6-2 on aggregate after two legs.
In terms of strength, Napoli cannot play Rrahmani, Jesus and Gollini due to injury. However, Rudi Garcia still hopes for heroes like Osimhen or Kvaratskhelia to face Real Madrid. Meanwhile, in the Real Madrid camp, Ancelotti cannot play Courtois, Militao, Alaba and Guler due to injury, but Vinicius has recovered. The Brazilian player will be the spearhead in the visiting team’s attack line.
According to Sportmole, Real Madrid is still superior to Napoli in terms of mentality and experience on the European stage. The Spanish giants will not let Napoli hinder their progress towards the knockout stages of the Champions League. Real Madrid is expected to win at home to Napoli in this match.
