Just result as Real Madrid was the better team most of the match. There were the typical scares for this type of Top level Football, one being the early goal by Napoli. Italian forward Insigne whipped a long range shot that bounced & caught Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas "asleep" & off his line.

A surprise goal in the 7th min that caught everyone off guard & it seemed that the Italians were to do big things. On the contrary, Real Madrid took control and commenced their comeback.

The equalizer came from Benzema who headed in a Carvajal cross in the 16th min. The second goal came in the 48th min through a pin point shot from Toni Kross, with the third a "screamer" volley from Casemiro in the 53rd min. 

Three goals, enough for the victory & half way to the Q/Final stage. I say half-way because there is the return match in Italy that could bring surprises. But if things follow their normal course Real Madrid should solve this elimination.
