The draw has officially been made as Real Madrid will be playing against Napoli, or as us Madridistas like to call it, “The Club That Has Our Beloved Jose Callejon FC”, in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16!
The Italians weren’t the most difficult team that we could have gone against yet it would be a massive mistake to say they were anywhere close to the easiest either as they have been doing really well so far in the Serie A this season.

Dynamo Kiev 1-2 Napoli
Napoli 4-2 Benfica
