The Napoli vs. Arsenal match will be played on Thursday, April 18, at the San Paolo Stadium, Napoli. This is the Europa League second quarterfinal leg. In the first leg played in London, Arsenal celebrated a 1:0 victory.


  • Napoli won only three out of their last eight games in all competitions. They conceded at least a goal in each of those matches.
  • Arsenal won five and lost only one out of their last six matches in all competitions. It is interesting that we saw under 2.5 goals in their last four games in all competitions.


This will be the fourth meeting of these two teams. It is interesting that all matches between them ended with 2:0 in favor of the hosts. Arsenal celebrated two wins, while Napoli won one match.


Napoli is currently seven points ahead of Inter on the Serie A table, so they practically secured the second place at the end of the season. Europa League is their last chance to win the trophy in this season, but they lost the first leg by 2:0 and they face a difficult challenge now. Napoli will have to attack from the first minute of the match and hope for an early goal. Arsenal is not famous for a strong defense, and the Italian players think they can overcome this deficit.

Arsenal played one of the best matches in this season against Napoli, and the result could have been even more convincing. Last weekend they defeated Watford as well and they are currently in the top four on Premier League table, which was their primary goal for the season. Arsenal will rely on counter attacks in the upcoming match.
