UCL: Real Madrid sees off resilient Napoli in six-goal thriller

Real Madrid came from behind to secure a 4-2 over victory over a determined Napoli side. 

Giovanni Simeone had put the visitors ahead nine minutes into the game, then Rodrygo equalized in less than two minutes, before Jude Bellingham headed in a second for the host, making history in the process as the Real Madrid player to score in each of his first four Champions League games. 

After the break, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa pulled levels for the Italian champions, but goals from teenagers, Nico Paz and Joselu, saw to it that the record 14-time UCL champions maintained their unbeaten run so far in the campaign this season. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s side is already through to the last 16 and despite the defeat, Napoli is still second in Group C, three points ahead of Sporting Braga, whom they face in their last group game
