Napoli Prediction

Napoli find themselves in a similar situation to Eintracht Frankfurt as the hosts seek to chase down a two-goal deficit in this 2nd leg of this Europa League quarter-final tie with Arsenal, but the major difference being that the Italian club failed to get on the scoresheet in last week’s opening leg at The Emirates.

Napoli now need to be on the front foot for this 2nd leg and they received a much needed boost ahead of this vital deciding leg when they recorded a convincing 3-1 win away at Chievo on the weekend in the Italian domestic Serie A.

However, with just one win from their last four matches overall in all competitions, the hosts need to pick themselves up for this 2nd leg following recent defeats to Empoli and Arsenal, as well as a disappointing 1-1 draw at home with Genoa.

On home turf though, Napoli have lost just one of their last 30 home matches in all competitions and with attacking personnel Milik (17 goals), Mertens (11 goals) and Insigne (9 goals) in goalscoring form, the hosts should get on the scoresheet here.

 

Key-Facts – Napoli v Arsenal

  • Napoli have lost just 1 of their last 30 home matches in all competitions
  • Arsenal have won 5 of their last 6 matches in all competitions
  • The last 3 ties between these two teams have resulted in a home win

 

Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal registered back-to-back wins recently when they recorded a 1-0 win away at Watford in the Premier League which followed on from last week’s 1st leg 2-0 win at The Emirates over tonight’s opponents, Napoli, and the visitors are now just 90 minutes away from a place in the semi-finals.

Arsenal have won five of their last six matches overall in all competitions which include Premier League wins against Manchester United, Newcastle United and Watford as well as Europa League wins against Rennes and Napoli.

A 1-0 hiccup away at Everton though will see a re-focused Arsenal outfit here for this 2nd leg as Unai Emery’s side will be desperate to avoid another loss here. Indeed, the win at Watford ended a run of four matches without a win on their travels, while they’ve also lost their last two away ties on the trot in the Europa League.

The Gunners also possess dangerous attacking goalscoring talent in the shape of Aubameyang (18 goals) and Lacazette (13 goals), and they could well exploit Napoli on the break here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Napoli know they must make a quick start in this 2nd leg if they’re to have any chance of reducing this 2-goal deficit while Arsenal always threaten up front.
