TWO CALCULATIONS OF CANONIES. Arsenal is a power at home. At Emirates Stadium he won 7 games in a row, and in the last six lost only one goal. Completely different face of the Gunners present at the exit. This is the only club in the Premier League that has not yet managed to keep a clean account in delegations! If Arsenal dreams about the semi-final, he must use the advantage of his own pitch on Thursday, because in Naples the hosts will be the decisive favorites.
- Arsenal – before the match with Napoli the canonist training Unai Emery said: “We play at home with the support of our fans and we know that we have to win this match. The first task is to win, but we also do not want to lose a goal at home. This is important. We know how good Napoli players are. Very good matches are going to be promised because there are great players in both clubs. “It is unlikely that he will play in the match of Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaki. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has health problems.
- Napoli – team led by the three-time Champions League winner as the manager (with Real Madrid and AC Milan), Carlo Ancelotti. Napoli takes second place in Serie A for Juventus and will probably end the game as the runner-up of Italy. On Saturday, he only drew home with Genoa 1: 1, despite the fact that the guests have been weakening for 28 minutes. After this match, Ancelotti said: “We played defensive very badly. We played 11 out of 10, and yet we could not take control of the match. If you control the match, you do not allow your opponent to make dangerous counterattacks. This is for a warning signal. If we play in London, it will be difficult. “Amadou Diawara and Raul Albiol are injured. David Ospina, borrowed from Arsenal, can not play.
Forecast: both clubs competed against each other in European competitions only once. In the Champions League group stage in the 2013/14 season, the hosts won 2-0 both matches. The advantage of your own pitch should be crucial here. Napoli never won in England, losing 7 out of 8 matches there. Arsenal at home is incredibly confident, he won 10 of the last 11 meetings at the Emirates Stadium, and the goal balance of the last six home games is 16: 1! Napoli has not shone recently, he lost 2 of the last 3 away games. Both clubs have their defensive problems, but they are very strong in attack. Proposed types: Arsenal’s victory – odds 2.4 / over 2.5 goals – odds 1.77.
