Real Madrid came from a goal down to beat Napoli in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, wrote the BBC.

The visitors took the lead after Keylor Navas was caught off guard by a superb Lorenzo Insigne strike inside eight minutes, the BBC added.

Karim Benzema headed the equaliser past Pepe Reina from Dani Carvajal’s cross 11 minutes later.

Toni Kroos put the hosts ahead early in the second half, before a stunning volley from Casemiro sealed the win.

Napoli will host the second leg on 7 March, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake, the BBC pointed out.
