Zidane's comments after win over Napoli will not give Real Madrid fans confidence ahead of second leg

Despite their impressive 3-1 victory over Napoli in their first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie, Real Madrid gaffer Zinedine Zidane has warned his wards against complacency claiming that they have not yet qualified for the last 8.

Real who are the title holders fell behind to an early goal at the Bernabeu but then outclassed their opponents with efforts from Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and a stunning volley from Brazilian midfielder Casemiro.

"We played a great game, I don't know if it was the best match we've played recently, but we made a great start.

"It was a shame about the Napoli goal, but we rectified things, scored ourselves and turned the game on its head and I think it was a good result.

"We'll go there to a difficult ground where we'll suffer and it's still an open game. We need to go there and finish it off with our 3-1 advantage,'' Zidane explained.

Meanwhile Real have now won 29 of their last 34 European home games and they are unbeaten in their last 12 at the Bernabeu in the competition.
