Real Madrid and Napoli meet after almost 30 years in the Champions League, fans react [Best Tweets]

The Champions League Round of 16 draw has thrown up a lot of fixtures that we’ve grown used to seeing, but La Liga giants Real Madrid will face Serie A elites Napoli after almost three decades

The last time these two teams squared off, it was Napoli who could boast of having one of the best players in the world on the team. Argentine Diego Maradona failed to score for I Partenopei though, as Real romped to a 3-1 victory.

This time around it is Real Madrid who boast of one of the world’s finest in Portuguese goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo. However, they have their task cut out for them, as Napoli have looked really good this season.

The second leg away at the San Paolo stadium in Naples is a particularly tricky challenge, with renowned Italian journalist Fabrizio Ramano stating that come match day, the stadium could end up resembling an antechamber of hell.
