Arsenal vs Napoli (By: MDG)
Arsenal hosts Napoli in quarterfinal match of the Europa League. As the season is moving towards its finish, Arsenal is not constantly involved in high scoring games anymore like that was usually the case for the better part of their season. Players are getting tired, injuries are riling up and a top four race in England together with European games is leaving its toll on gunners.
In last two matches of Arsenal with Everton and Newacstle there were only 2 goals overall. Newcastle lost with 2:0 here at the Emirates and then Arsenal played away in Liverpool against Everton in the latest league round where they lost 1:0 without scoring a goal. Napoli lost to Empoli 2:1 before playing their most recent 1:1 draw hosting Genoa in the most recent round. Both teams had some poor results in recent outings and I can see a tight match that won't provide as many goals.
Hosts have Xhaka and Koscienly marked as doubtful for today and that could be a problem for Arsenal, Xhaka became a key player for this club. For Napoli, Verdi and Diawara are doubtful. In last nine away matches of Napoli there were 3 draws, 0:0 twice with Milan away and Fiorentina away and a 1:1 draw with Sassuolo. Napoli should not take too many risky moves in tonight's first leg, their recent form has been poor and they will be more than happy with a draw. Arsenal is finally facing a real high quality opponent in Europa League and they will be tested tonight.
