Napoli vs Real Madrid (UEFA CL 2023-24)

NAPOLI were always going to suffer a hangover after ending their long wait for the Serie A title but the visit of mighty Real Madrid on Champions League business gives them a chance to get the juices flowing again.

The biggest blow after that epic championship triumph was losing mastermind Luciano Spalletti and successor Rudi Garcia has suffered a few teething troubles, dropping seven points in the first five Serie A fixtures.

But Napoli have clicked into top gear again in the last week, following up a 4-1 home win over Udinese by smashing four past Leece on the road at the weekend to sit just four points off the summit.

The Italian champions also won 2-1 away to Braga in their Champions League opener so things are definitely on the up again, although the club scored a remarkable own goal by mocking star striker Victor Osimhen on their TikTok account.
