The London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea are still working on a city duel in the final of the Europa League. Both could win their first leg in the quarterfinals of the competition, with Arsenal with Napoli had the much more difficult task compared to the blue city rivals. The Gunners won the first leg at home Emirates Stadium 2-0 and accordingly travel with the best conditions to the Vesuvius. Napoli on the other hand will have to come home now, which certainly plays the Londoners in the cards.
Napoli vs Arsenal Football Betting Prediction Napoli vs Arsenal
Nevertheless, the Italians have what it takes to turn this match in their home stadium. Ultimately decided is nothing and you can expect an exciting game. In the duel between Napoli and Arsenal, the prediction is easy to a tip on home win, however, one should focus on other bets at this starting position.
Napoli – Statistics & Current Form
SSC Napoli’s dress rehearsal for the upcoming Arsenal match was a success, even though Sunday’s 3-1 win at the bottom of Serie A’s Chievo Verona was no more than a triumph. For Napoli, the season in the domestic league has more or less run, which will probably again this time in the runner-up – for the third time in the last four years. Six outstandings still have 18 points to play. Juventus are 17 points down on leaders Juventus, who are 13 points ahead of AS Roma, who no longer qualify for the Champions League.
The main focus should therefore lie on the Europa League, in which the Neapolitans, however, are facing a difficult task. Hope make the previous appearances in the home stadium. In Serie A eleven of 16 home games (one defeat) were won with a goal difference of 34:12 and also in the premier class Napoli remained as unbeaten with victories over Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade and a draw against Paris SG as in the two previous KO -Heating in the Europa League against FC Zurich and Red Bull Salzburg. Napoli have conceded only two goals in five European home games this season. The only defeat so far in 22 competitive games in their own stadium this season was in early March in the league against Juventus – 16 wins, five draws.
In twelve home matches this season Napoli could keep behind the zero and Napoli met only twice not. However, Napoli will need at least two of their own goals on Thursday and at least two goals have been enough for the southern Italians in 13 home matches this season. The semi-final is certainly still possible for Napoli, where Amadou Diawara and Raul Albiol are still absent, but a goal may change the entire game. For that reason, in the Napoli game against Arsenal, I would not suggest a tip to the Italians at anyway modest odds.
Expected line up of Napoli:
↳ Meret; Rui, Koulibaly, Maksimovic, Malcuit; Zielinski, Ruiz, Allan, Callejon; Milik, Insigne
Last matches of Napoli:

Arsenal – Statistics & Current Form
Arsenal FC also won their league title late on Monday evening, with Watford’s narrow 1-0 success seemingly more or less clear after eleven minutes. Because at this time the Gunners already led, while the opponent weakened himself with an early red card. As a result, Arsenal wiggled despite numerous but several times and was lucky in an aluminum goal. In the end, the Londoners rocked the game only with difficulty home. Looking at the table and especially the simultaneous bankruptcy of Chelsea, it was an immensely important threesome, with the Arsenal past the city rivals pushed past in fourth place – if only because of the better goal difference.
“The better team has lost. If Arsenal plays like that on Thursday, then they will be eliminated. Watford was extremely wasteful. Napoli will not be that. ” – Ex-pro Chris Sutton after Arsenal’s triumph over Watford
The fight for third and fourth place is still exciting in the Premier League, with Tottenham in third and Man United (6th) just three points away. Unlike opponents Napoli, Arsenal will have to go clean again in the last few weeks, with the Achilles’ heels of the Londoners clearly being the away games. In the Premier League, Arsenal won only six out of 16 outings and is only eighth in the away table. After an impressive group stage in the Europa League with five wins and a draw at 12: 2 goals, Arsenal had to shake twice in the episode. The first leg in the sixteenth and knockout round at BATE Borisov and Stade Rennes were lost away each. Both times, Arsenal was able to turn the game at home and make it 1-3 down against the French. Now, the English have submitted in the first leg, they could actually have won, if not even higher.
Away, Arsenal, who have to do without Napoli’s Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck, can look back on just one win in their last five competitive matches – three defeats and five defeats in their last eight outings. But if Arsenal scores a goal then the Londoners can even afford a 1: 3 defeat. And Arsenal scored at least one away goal this season in 19 of 22 cases. For this reason, in the game of Arsenal near Napoli the tip seems to be that both teams to score, not a bad choice.
Expected formation of Arsenal:
↳ Cech; Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Guendozi, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Mkhitaryan; Aubameyang
Last matches from Arsenal:
⚽️ 15.04.2019 – Watford Vs. Arsenal 0: 1 (Premier League)

⚽️ 07.04.2019 – Everton Vs. Arsenal 1: 0 (Premier League)

It will depend a lot on Arsenal’s goal and if so, when. With an early goal, the guests can pull the tooth early on the Neapolitans, who then have to make four goals and then their motivation should drop accordingly. Napoli are home strong and in most cases played to zero in the San Paolo, but Arsenal has not met away from home three times this season. With the knowledge to score with a goal for a preliminary decision, one can assume that Arsenal does not completely lock itself behind, but also the way forward is looking for.
