In Italy, fans of top Italian football club, Napoli, linked the anticipated game to the one against them in 2012 where Chelsea shocked the football world despite being trailed by three goals.
According to many pundits, if Chelsea could overturn a 1-3 scoreline against Napoli in the 2012 Champions league knockout ties, then Real Madrid should be worried.
Just like Real Madrid’s victory a few days ago, individual defensive errors had cost Chelsea a 3-1 defeat to Napoli in the first leg of game, but Chelsea reacted in the second leg with a 4-1 victory that eliminated Napoli out of the competition.
