ARS vs NAP: This match is to be played at Stadio San Paolo, Naples, Italy. The ground has a capacity of 60,240. Arsenal are the fourth-placed side in Premier League and have proven themselves to be a real threat in Europe this season. They are looking to finally get their hands on a title won outside of England. Coach Unai Emery has done really well in the UEFA Europa League, and his experience of winning this competition is coming in handy. If they survive the second leg tie against their opponents, it might just make them the favourites.
Meanwhile, SSC Napoli is in the second spot in the Italian Serie A. The team is still in a mode where they are trying to develop themselves to become a side who can compete domestically as well as in Europe. Manager Carlo Ancelotti replaced Maurizio Sarri, and he hasn’t let the club feel his absence at all. Furthermore, he has a lot of pedigree in Italy, and he will be looking to rebuild this team into a legitimate side who can actually win titles.
