Sergio Ramos turned Real Madrid's fortunes around in Naples, scoring at the start of the second half against Napoli in the Champions League last-16 second leg, with Real Madrid trailing 1-0 on the night and looking nervous with just one more goal for the Italians being enough to see them through at that point.

Ramos to the rescue for Real Madrid

With Real Madrid level and their nerves settled, Ramos then headed goalwards again just five minutes later, his effort hit Mertens and nestled in the back of net, and Real Madrid, and Napoli, knew the tie was over. Real Madrid's second was credited to Mertens as an own goal, but the artifice was Ramos. He'd single-handedly turned a match round, in which Real Madrid were looking very, very shaky.
