Napoli vs Arsenal: Nervy night ahead for the Gunners but will they qualify?
The Gunners secured a 2-0 win in the first leg of this quarterfinal against Napoli, leaving the tie delicately balanced, considering the Italian side's brilliant home record and Arsenal's tendency to struggle on the road.

Match preview ✅
Arsenal recorded only their third away win of 2019 at Watford on Monday, but the Hornets played nearly all of the game with 10 men - and were arguably still good value for a point. It was Arsenal's solitary clean sheet on the road in the EPL this season.
Carlo Ancelotti's side underperformed in the first half at the Emirates and then failed to take their chances when they came and that means they have a 2-0 aggregate scoreline mountain to climb, but that should guarantee that they will give it a go. Only Juventus have beaten Napoli on this ground this season, and that also includes matches against PSG and Liverpool in the Champions League. The Gunners' defence won't be able to hold out, but perhaps neither will Napoli's.
Team news 🌟
The Napoli boss has suggested he may somehow pack Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Arkadiusz Milik into the same team, as Napoli chase a way back into the tie. Raul Albiol and Amadou Diawara are still sidelined by injury.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to catch the eye in attack, and he has scored five goals in his last nine matches. Aaron Ramsey's farewell tour seems to be getting the best out of the Welshman who scored beautifully in the first leg, and the all-rounder and midfield general Lucas Torreira also impressed in the 2-0 win last week.
