Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners were as comfortable as you like in the group stage of this season’s Europa League. However, they have the lost the first leg of the two knockout stage ties so far. That was against BATE and then Rennes. So they have shown some character in turning things around at least. Can they get a comfortable result at home here? This is just the second meeting between them, following their group stage meeting in the 2013/14 Champions League? The two traded 2-0 home wins. Arsenal have a home record of W8 D3 L1 from two Europa League campaigns.

Arsenal have a home record of W10 D4 L2 against Italian opposition. So that’s very positive from them. They have taken a win in six of their last seven home games against visitors from Italy too, drawing the other game in that sequence? In their last seven games against Serie A teams at home, Arsenal have conceded just the one goal as well. Arsenal have won their two previous quarter-finals in Europe against Italian teams. Last season they faced AC Milan in the round of sixteen and won 5-1 on aggregate (3-1 in North London).

 

Key-Facts – Arsenal v Napoli

  • Arsenal have only ever lost one home game in the Europa League
  • The Gunners have won all but one of their last seven home games against Italian sides

Napoli News and Form

Napoli have already had a taste of Premier League opposition this season. They were up against Liverpool in the group stage of the Champions League. When they went to Anfield in December they suffered a loss. That leaves them winless in seven visits to England with a D2 L5 record from that. They have lost their two previous two-legged ties against Premier League sides both ended in defeat, which was against Swansea in the 2013/14 Europa League following a defeat against Chelsea in the 2011/12 Champions League round of sixteen.

Napoli finished third in their Champions League group this season, dropping down to this Europa League. They eased to a 5-1 aggregate win over Zurich in the round of 32 before taking a narrow aggregate success of 4-3 over Salzburg in the round of sixteen. Napoli won their one previous Europa League quarter-final ties, which was against Wolfsburg in 2014/15. Napoli have taken just two wins in their last nine European away games (D2 L5). They are W4 D2 L6 away from home in games in the knockout stage of the Europa League.

Arsenal v Napoli Predictions

Arsenal to win: The Gunners have been reliable on home soil and they could get the upper hand in this game with a positive display. The Gunners will recognise that they need something out of this game. Home win at 5/4 odds looks solid* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 7th, 2019 at 7:12 p.m.)
