Ancelotti warns Real Madrid: It won't be easy against Napoli



Although Real Madrid are favourites to progress from their Champions League tie against Napoli, former coach Carlo Ancelotti has suggested their passage will be far from easy.
The Italians have found their best form just in time for their biggest game of the season and will be full of confidence when they face Zinedine Zidane's record-breaking side.
"I can say that playing against Real Madrid is always difficult, but it will not be easy to play against this Napoli side either," Ancelotti said to Corriere dello Sport.
"Napoli don't surprise me.
"I've been following their progress and they've been playing very well.

"A team that scores seven goals as the away side in the Italian championship has to be very good," he continued."They've maintained an extraordinary offensive quality even after the injury of their centre-forward Milik."
The Polish striker may play a few minutes against Genoa with a view to making a full comeback against Real, but Napoli have been doing just fine without him.
"It is something that only a great team can do."
Despite such praise, Napoli aren't one of the teams that Ancelotti has picked to go on and win the title.
"This Champions League can be won by seven teams," he noted.
"Real Madrid, Bayern, Barcelona, Juventus, Atletico, Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City.
"There is a lot more balance this season and there is no real favourite."
