Casemiro Unleashes Wonder Strike To Help Real Madrid Put Away Napoli

Alexis Sanchez equalised for the visitors, scoring on the rebound after Manuel Neuer saved his 30th-minute penalty, but that seems of little outcome now before the second leg in London on March 7.

He may not have scored against Napoli, but Cristiano Ronaldo highlighted the unselfish side to his game in Real Madrid's 3-1 win.

The 32-year-old forward set up Toni Kroos for the holders' second in their 3-1 last-16 first-leg win over Napoli at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Real Madrid had a super chance to take the lead inside the opening 20 seconds when Ronaldo set up Benzema - which was a feature of the first period - with a low cross inside the Napoli box, but the French striker could not beat Pepe Reina in the Napoli net.

Zinedine Zidane had urged his side to keep a clean sheet to give them the best possible chance of going through, but those hopes were dashed after only eight minutes when Insigne embarrassed goalkeeper Keylor Navas with a stunning first-time effort from distance.

Stock Market Rises After Yellen's Capitol Hill Testimony
After Yellen' optimism about the USA economy the data on Wednesday has a chance to validate her view. "I would say every meeting is live".

Real will feel good about this result, but that away goal means Napoli still has life.

The lead lasted 10 minutes as Real drew level when Dani Carvajal's arrowed cross was headed powerfully into the net by Benzema.

This goes to Kroos, who got his goal and his passing in the middle really improved as the game went on, allowing Real to quickly transition to attack.

Insigne was fed through on goal by Marek Hamsik and spotted Real keeper Navas out of position.
