Nearly 30 years later, though, he will be at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium trying to cheer the Italian club to its greatest Champions League achievement.
Both managers made changes as the match entered its final 15 minutes, and it was Real Madrid that were searching for the game's next goal as Benzema and Ronaldo started to find each other in risky positions once again. Criticism against him increased after an incredible close-range miss in the team's 3-1 win at Osasuna in the Spanish league on Saturday.
It was a wonderful effort from the Italian worldwide, but Casemiro, like his Madrid team, would not be outdone.
The Real Madrid players kept their cool despite conceding a stunning early goal in the Champions League, producing an outstanding performance that kept the defending champions on track for a seventh straight appearance in the quarterfinals. Everyone can ask for more from a player like Karim, but to me he looks good and I'm happy with his work.
Notably, Napoli is used to playing on a waterlogged pitch. It also reached this stage in 2011-12, when it was eliminated by Chelsea.
That was the way it stayed until the break when Kroos stepped up to notch only his second goal in 30 games for the club this term.
Here is how to watch the soccer match through an online live stream or TV.
The teams will meet Wednesday at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 series.
The second leg is in Naples on March 7. We know it's 50/50; we have the first game at home tomorrow and we know that we can hurt the other team and that they can cause us problems too.
The France World Cup victor said: "I'm very happy to see everything and everyone ready to play in the Champions League again".
