Isco restored Real's lead in the 62nd and Zinedine Zidane's side added a third through Vazquez with the last kick of the game.

The sides meet for the second leg in London on March 8.

Wow. That's just an unbelievably flawless shot from a guy who has totaled just three goals for Real since 2013.

The 56-year-old Maradona was invited by Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis to watch the soccer match against the defending European champions in Madrid.

Insigne was fed through on goal by Marek Hamsik and spotted Real keeper Navas out of position. Casemiro's goal came from utilizing a bubble of space Napoli were consistently leaving in front of the defense, but even then it required an absurd finish for him to score. Ronaldo skipped his way brilliantly beyond Kalidou Koulibaly and into the area from the right, and his measured pass back to the edge of the area was promptly swept into Reina's bottom-left corner by the arriving Kroos.

Bonaventure 70-55 on the Bonnies home court in Olean, New York, the team found themselves stranded at the arena with no way home. Another bus took the Billikens to Randolph so the team could retrieve their possessions from the first bus.

He may not have scored against Napoli, but Cristiano Ronaldo highlighted the unselfish side to his game in Real Madrid's 3-1 win.

Bayern Munich crushed Arsenal 5-1 in their Champions League round of 16 first leg, scoring three goals in a dazzling 10-minute spell in the second half to extend their record to 16 consecutive home wins in the competition.

As for Napoli, centre-back Raul Albiol and attacker Jose Callejon both faced their former clubs, while Elseid Hysaj returned to the team after missing the Serie A clash with Genoa at the weekend, meaning that Christian Maggio dropped to the bench.

Napoli's main goal threat also tested Navas, but the Costa Rican stopper ably came and met his effort from Insigne's through ball.

It's not often you see an attempt like this when a goalkeeper is off his line.
