    One of the eight Champions League fixtures to be played on the 29th of November is the meeting between Real Madrid and Napoli in Group C.

    The game will be played at the Santiago Bernabéu and the hosts are currently top of the group on 12 points while the visitors are in second place on 7 points.

    Real Madrid come into the match having beat Cadiz 3-0 away in La Liga on the weekend.

    It took only 14 minutes for Real Madrid to open the scoring and they doubled their advantage 19 minutes into the second half.

    Real Madrid completed the job with a third goal in the 74th minute to move top of La Liga.

    The victory over Cadiz means Real Madrid are undefeated in their 11 most recent matches in all competitions.

    They have won 9 of those 11 games, with the additional victories coming over Las Palmas, Girona, Osasuna, Barcelona, and Valencia in La Liga plus Napoli away and Sporting Braga home and away in the Champions League.

    Trends show Real Madrid have won each of their last 4 Champions League fixtures and are undefeated in their 8 most recent home games in the competition.

    In fact, Real Madrid have lost only 1 of their last 13 home Champions League matches and they have scored 2 or more goals in 10 of those 13 games.

    Napoli travel to the Santiago Bernabéu having recorded a good 2-1 win at Atalanta in Serie A on the weekend.

    Napoli took the lead shortly before half time but Atalanta got back into the match with the equaliser in the 53rd minute.

    Napoli regained the lead in the 79th minute and that goal was enough to claim the victory.

    The win over Atalanta means Napoli are undefeated in 6 of their 7 most recent fixtures in all competitions.

    There have been wins over Verona and Salernitana in Serie A plus a victory over Union Berlin in the Champions League.

    The other 2 undefeated matches ended level with draws against AC Milan in Serie A and Union Berlin the Champions League.

    Form in the Champions League shows Napoli are undefeated in 4 of their 5 most recent matches in the competition.

    They have won 3 of their last 4 Champions League games on the road and have found the back of the net in 8 of their last 10 away matches in the Champions League.

    Team news: Real Madrid have several players in the treatment room, including Vinícius Júnior, Eduardo Camavinga, Arda Güler, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Éder Militão, and Thibaut Courtois.

    Napoli have just two players unavailable for this game, with Jesper Lindstrom and Mario Rui out with an ankle and muscle injury respectively.

    Napoli have the talent in their team to cause problems for Real Madrid, who are without some top players, and find the back of the net.

    However, Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu is a tough proposition for any team in the Champions League, and even without the likes of Vinícius Júnior, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Éder Militão, the hosts should come out on top to win the group.
