Pre-Match Report

Napoli v Arsenal: The Brief

Unai Emery has won more games in the Europa League knockout stages than any other coach, but he faces a true test of his pedigree tonight.

The good news: we take a 2-0 lead to the Stadio San Paolo, so a solitary away goal would leave Napoli needing four.

The bad news: Serie A’s second-placed team can be a fearsome force on home soil, and have already beaten Liverpool here this season.

Carlo Ancelotti has promised “heart and intensity” from his players, and we’ll undoubtedly have a storm to weather.

Unai’s job is to find the perfect mix of protection and penetration. If he gets the balance right, a semi-final place should be ours.
