The Parthenopeans took the lead very early in the game through Argentine striker Giovanni Simeone, with Brazil international Rodrygo Goes levelling things up a few seconds later.

Real Madrid went ahead for the first time in the game after Bellingham headed in David Alaba's lovely cross in the 22nd minute, according to a report by BBC Sports.

Cameroonian midfielder Andre Zambo Anguissa restored parity two minutes after the restart, but goals from Real Madrid's second-half substitutes, Nico Paz and Joselu, gave Los Blancos the deserved win over Napoli.
