Napoli tries but Real Madrid remains unapproachable.
A clear defeat, although painless for the purposes of passing the group, it can do more damage in morale than on the pitch. On the other hand, Napoli against Real Madrid showed that they are a real team, even if they are too dependent on impromptu outbursts;
Thanks to a very botched Real Madrid, due to the absences which kept some top players out, but which still remains too much for a still convalescent Napoli: among the absentees, unfortunately for the Azzurri, there is no Bellingham, whose presence alone is enough to instill fear in the opposing rearguard. It’s thanks to him and an overflowing Rodrygoperhaps, that the laziest and most indolent version is enough of Ancelotti’s men to ensure supremacy in the group: there will be time to raise the revs, as an old cup fox like the coach from Reggiolo knows well. Who knows, maybe in spring…;

The good news for Napoli lies in a good spirit of adaptation, with the Azzurri who, after having suffered a one/two, withstood the outbursts of Ancelotti’s team, who indeed often seemed to be in difficulty when pressed continuously and with more men. In the second half the entrance to Osimhen he also manages to make Napoli dangerous, who often appear near Lunin. A Napoli that, in short, is continuing its path of maturation, making its way through various obstacles. In this regard, playing without permanent left backs at the Bernabeu is a significant handicap;
However, Napoli sinned in concrete terms, too often looking for the play of effect rather than risking the shot. Courage in the conclusion which was not lacking in Zambo Anguissa, one of the most positive and generally regenerated by the change of bench. Smoky Kvaratskhelia, while Meret experiences a two-sided day: two great saves at 2-2, when he kept his team afloat during the outbursts of the hosts, who however aimed at a Joselu with decidedly wet powder. However, a serious mistake arrives on Nico Paz’s rather unrealistic shot 10′ from the end which directs the match. Trial time will arrive promptly for the Friulian number 1: he remains a great goalkeeper, but with problematic lapses in concentration over the course of the 90 minutes;
The ranking remains fundamentally identical for the Azzurri, who must collect at least one point against Braga in the last of the group. A painless defeat, therefore, but which leaves a certain bitter taste in the mouth for the occasions in which, perhaps, Napoli only smelled the prey, without however giving the decisive blow. A match that must serve Napoli and Mazzarri to improve themselves: the Neapolitan team, now a regular guest in the parlor, can and must go beyond the satisfaction of having competed on equal terms until the 80th minute, but draw inspiration from it to not settle and take this last step, especially mental .
