Real 3-1 Napoli: Insigne nets 40-yarder, Casemiro wonder volley!


Real Madrid survived the early scare of going behind to Lorenzo Insigne's cleverly placed 40-yard curler after 8th minutes to hit back with goals from Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro to win their last 16 first leg tie with Napoli 3-1 at the Bernabeu. Benzema headed the first half equaliser from a delicious outside-of-the-boot cross by Sergio Ramos and Real took the lead when Kroos fired a screamer low into the net on 49 minutes. Casemiro then sealed the 3-1 win with a ferocious volley from a half-cleared ball which swerved into the corner and brought the Bernabeu to its feet - and had tennis legend Rafa Nadal smiling in the stands.
