Date: on the 18th of April, 2019 (Thursday)
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Europa League. ¼ final.
The return leg of the Europa League ¼ final will be held between Italian Napoli against Arsenal London.
In the first match the Neopolitans have lost with the score 0:2 having shown rather weak game and created few scoring chances. Nevertheless, this score allows Azzurrri to get into another round of the competition as the team of Carlo Anchelotti will have absolutelydifferent game on São Paulo. Also they are extremely motivated this season for Europa League after the game for Scudetto has been lost to Juventus.
The Gunners could have won on home ground with larger score than two goals but they had problems in conversion these moments.
This fact may cause great problems in Napoli as the team of Unai Emeri has managed to get into the ¼ final of the Europa League play-off only thanks to home matches which were the second matches for them in first two rounds and both away matches were lost (BATE Belarus and Rennes France).
It will be hard for Arsenal on São Paulo despite great handicap. Napoli is able to play in attacking football and is able to destroy the defense of the rival being in appropriate mood.
This can be seen in one match of the Championship of Italy this season when Milan at the beginning of the 2nd half was leading with the score 0:2 and then it has lost with the score 3:2. And here Azzurri will have 90 minutes to win back.
We suppose that they will manage to do this but the fact that any goal scored by Arsenal will force Napoli to score more.
They must win this particular game but what team will become the winner is difficult to predict.
