Champions League Results 2017: Qualified Teams After Tuesday's Round-of-16 Ties

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have been named in Real Madrid's Champions League squad for the last-16, second-leg tie against Napoli. Further goals from Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and two from Arturo Vidal made it 5-1 on the night, 10-2 on aggregate, making for an embarrassing exit for the Gunners as cries for Arsene Wenger's job get louder.

Ronaldo and Bale both sat out in the 4-1 win at Eibar on Saturday and Madrid's display was full of passion and urgency at Ipurua - exactly what had been missing from previous performances as Real dropped points against Valencia and Las Palmas.

After a 3-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu last month, Napoli host the 11-time European champions Tuesday dreaming of causing a major upset and securing their first berth in the last eight of Europe's premier club competition. We suspect that, this time, Sarri will include Rog in a midfield that also features Hamsik and Guinean midfielder Amadou Diawara, whilst the Callejon-Mertens-Insigne trio will nearly certainly lead the attack.

Maurizio Sarri: "I don't think we played so badly [in the first leg], I just think we could have done better when we had the ball".

"Everybody has his own opinion about who should play or not, " he said at his pre-match press conference.

Karim Benzema's pass sent Cristiano Ronaldo sprinting between the Napoli defenders and past Pepe Reina but the Portuguese forward fired his shot against the foot of the post.

Madrid went a goal down to Napoli in the first leg before recovering to win the game comfortably.

But Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is aware that Napoli can be a tough nut to crack at home.

Nonetheless, there is an increasing concern, especially among supporters that the lack of defensive intensity when Bale, Benzema, and Ronaldo are on the pitch could eventually end up hurting Zidane's La Liga and Champions League hopes as they approach the business end of the season. Stay tuned for Napoli vs Real Madrid live score updates, match results and highlights. After all, Real is on a hot streak of consecutive-scoring games, and it's very unlikely that they'll be kept to a clean sheet. "They're a team filled with star names, but we have to take the game to them".

In the first leg against Napoli, Lorenzo Insigne's early goal had put Sarri's side ahead.

Napoli vs Real Madrid Champions League clash is set for 8.45pm CET (7.45pm GMT, 2.45pm ET, 1.15am IST) start.
