Real Madrid cross swords with Napoli in the UEFA Champions League as the former look to continue their winning streak while the latter hopes to make it through to the next round.
Real Madrid have managed to win all their opening four games in Europe this term and are looking a strong team despite their injuries. Jude Bellingham's rise to prominence in Spain has helped them reach the pinnacle of La Liga and Group C in the UCL. Carlo Ancelotti would want the Spanish powerhouses to continue their winning momentum and finish the group stages on a high.
Napoli are also tipped to make it through to the next round but they would not want to leave the task hanging until their last game. With seven points from four games, Braga can leapfrog Napoli if the former wins both their games and the latter faces two defeats. So Napoli would be looking to end Madrid's fairytale run and march into the Round of 16.

Real Madrid will have Jude Bellingham available for the Champions League match against Braga on Wednesday, when it will go for its fourth straight win in Group C.
Bellingham injured his left shoulder in the Spanish league match against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, but he trained on Tuesday and was included in the squad list.
Madrid leads the group with nine points, three more than Napoli and six more than Braga.
Napoli hosts winless Union Berlin in the other group match on Wednesday. Madrid has qualified for the knockout rounds in all 27 of its previous campaigns.
Bellingham was hurt after a fall about 10 minutes into the 0-0 draw against Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Team doctors put wrapping on the shoulder and he continued playing. Tests conducted on Monday showed no major injury.
Bellingham has been Madrid’s best player since joining this season from Borussia Dortmund. The 20-year-old England international has participated in more than half of Madrid’s goals. He has 13 goals in 14 matches with the Spanish club.
Having Bellingham in top form is key for Madrid, which won only once in the four games in which he failed to score.
The team’s forwards have somewhat struggled in attack this season, with Vinícius Júnior contributing three goals and Rodrygo two.
Defender Ferland Mendy has a muscle ailment but was in the squad for the game at the Bernabeu.
Ancelotti may give a debut to midfielder Arda Güler, the 18-year-old Turkey international who was signed this season but sustained a knee injury shortly after arriving. He was on the bench against Rayo Vallecano.
Braga is expected to be at full strength. The Portuguese team has never advanced past the group stage. It is making its third Champions League appearance, and first in 11 seasons.
Ancelotti defended Vinícius despite criticism from opponents that the Brazil international confronts players and referees too much during matches.
Switzerland coach Murat Yakin has kept his job for next year’s European Championship after the national soccer federation on Tuesday resisted calls to fire him.
The Swiss qualified for Euro 2024 despite a run of eight qualifying games since June when the team beat only Andorra. Leads were wasted by conceding late goals amid reports of tension between the coach and senior players Granit Xhaka and Manuel Akanji.
Carlo Ancelotti's side have won all four of their group games so far this season, including a 3-2 victory away in Naples in October, and they only need a point from their final two matches to confirm top spot in the group.
Napoli are in a strong position to join them in the knockout stages, with seven points from four games, and a win in Madrid would confirm their place. A draw for Walter Mazzarri's team would also be enough if Braga fail to win at home to Union Berlin, with Napoli at home to the Portuguese side in their final group fixture.
