In the recent past the Serie A outfit faced a defeat against the Los Blancos side in the Champions league round of 16 at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium by 3-1 goal.

Insigne is confident that his side will stand strong against Real Madrid side in the second leg at Stadio San Paolo.


He voiced: "The result clouds the real performance, but we are alive and kicking, you will see,"


"Napoli will amaze you. We'll find ourselves again, the side the people are accustomed to seeing. I also want to add that the 3-1 result lulls you into a false sense of security, because the gap was not so wide on the night.

"Real Madrid players are at the top level, but they are not monsters. We lacked something, perhaps a certain calm needed to express ourselves in our usual style, but there were times where we were able to pass it around and create chances.

"We are the same Napoli side who went unbeaten in 18 matches. The side who went into the break 1-1 with Real Madrid.


"I don't think it was the stadium, but rather the fact Real are more accustomed to playing this type of match. They have it in their DNA and have won every trophy.

"We are on the right track, but still need to grow and to do that we have to go through games and disappointments like this."
