Real Madrid

Recent matches 

Real Madrid’s recent 3-0 triumph over Cadiz adds to their impressive 11-game unbeaten run across all competitions, and they are likely to extend their record. Already through to the next stage, a draw in this match would seal their top spot in the group. 

Despite injuries of high-profile players, Real has been doing well, evidenced by their 8-goal tally in recent matches against Cadiz and Valencia. Although the team has occasionally struggled defensively, this did not significantly impact the team’s overall success.

Key Players 

Jude Bellingham is, without a doubt, the best transfer of the summer window. The English youngster recovered from a minor injury, forcing him to miss two matches. He marked his return with a goal against Cadiz, bringing his total to 11 in La Liga and 3 in the Champions League.

Rodrygo’s form is another highlight. The Brazilian scored an impressive brace against Cadiz and an average of 0.5 xG per 90 minutes this season.

However, the list of injuries is worrying for Madrid. Most recently, Vinicius Junior picked up a hamstring injury during the international break, and he will be sidelined for over two months. Eduardo Camavinga, Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao will be absent too. 


Recent matches

Napoli’s crucial 2-1 victory over Atalanta marked an upturn in form following Rudy Garcia’s departure. With 24 points in 13 games, they sit fourth in the league table. 

In the Champions League, they have almost qualified for the next round. A draw against Real Madrid will likely be enough to secure their progression, facing Braga at home in their final match. 

Key Players

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is the main attacking force for the Parthenopeans. Creating 0.42 xG per 90 minutes, he is one of the most successful dribblers in Europe. He scored the opener against Atalanta while the defenders struggled to stop him.

Nigerian Victor Osimhen was injured but returned in the previous match. Used as a substitute, he assisted Elif Elmas to secure a 2:1 victory. He is expected to be in the starting 11 against Real Madrid. 

Head-to-Head Statistics 

Real Madrid and Napoli have faced off five times, with Los Blancos having a notable advantage (4 W, 1 D). The most recent encounter was a real thriller, ending in a 2:3 victory for Real Madrid, with Napoli leading at one point.
