Arsenal made a strong start to their Europa League quarter-final with a composed 2-0 first-leg victory at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners took control during the opening 45 minutes in north London courtesy of Aaron Ramsey’s neat finish and a Kalidou Koulibaly own goal.
However, the Gunners’ away form has been their downfall in Unai Emery’s first campaign and a home win looks appealing in our first Napoli vs Arsenal prediction.
Napoli only narrowly missed out on advancing to the knockout phase of the Champions League after finishing third in a tough group featuring Paris St Germain and Liverpool.
They held the French outfit to two draws, while they defeated Jurgen Klopp’s side at the San Paolo Stadium, but a 1-0 loss at Anfield saw them drop to third and into the Europa League.
Azzurri have been in strong form at home this season, losing only to Serie A leaders Juventus in 22 matches in all competitions, winning 16.
On the Arsenal defeat, Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti said: “Turning things around now will be difficult, but we’ll be home, at the San Paolo, and the fans will help us.
“In the second half we managed to do better, create chances, so I have hope for the second leg. It’s difficult, not impossible.”
