Thursday night is Europe League Day and so the upcoming April 11, 2019, is all about the quarter-final first leg between the eight currently best teams in this competition. A highlight game in this respect is certainly the clash between Arsenal (currently in the English Premier League fifth place) and Napoli (second-highest in Italy's top football championship) at the British Emirates Stadium at 21:00. The game will be headed by the referee Alberto Undiano, Spain.
While the former Gladbacher Granit Xhaka (25 Premier League appearances and five Europeans in the current 2018/19 season) have recently failed due to a groin injury. The guests will continue to rely on Raúl Albiol (knee surgery) and the 21-year-old Amadou Diawara (muscular problems) must give up.
A look in the last two clashes between both teams leads back to 2013; At that time, both teams won their respective group home games in the UEFA Champions League 2:0.
However, taking into account the overall team performances over the past weeks, the Gunners are clearly more consistent and successful with twelve points from the last five games (four wins in a row, followed by a narrow 1:0 defeat last weekend against the ninth-placed team in the standings - Everton). Napoli, on the other hand, got only 7 points (no appreciable winning streak, and last but not least a draw against Genoa in Serie A game).
Also explicitly referring to the goal statistics of the relevant Europa League season 2018/19, perform the players of Arsenal better: With 19:6 goals and the fourfold top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang coach Unai Emery's squad is better than Carlo Ancelotti's Italians, The latter has a goal ratio of only 9:4 goals; top scorer is with only two goals Arkadiusz Milik.
In addition, the Gunners equals European-style evenings of a fortress: In the previous five encounters at home, the English could not be beaten by any other team (four wins, one draw). In contrast, Napoli revealed - as a group third in the premier class end of 2018 qualified for the Euro League - away from some weaknesses (a total of one win, two draws and two defeats).
Finally, the (enthusiastic) viewers expected a most likely very entertaining game in which Arsenal has the better cards because of his home strength as well as superior to the Neapolitans offensive force. Accordingly, our suggestion is the home team to win undoubtedly (odds 2.40).
