Arsenal travel to Italy to take on Napoli in the second leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tie on Thursday night. The Gunners ran rampant against Napoli in the first leg, winning 2-0. Arsenal could have had more as they smothered Napoli during the 90 minutes.
Napoli rebounded at the weekend with a 3-1 win over Serie A's bottom team Chievo Verona. Carlo Ancelotti will hope his Partenopei can play much better at home against the Gunners.
Despite Arsenal winning the first leg courtesy of an Aaron Ramsey goal and own goal from Kalidou Koulibaly, Napoli will be confident of overturning the tie in Italy. Arsenal's away form has been diabolical this season. The Gunners have lost both of the away legs of their Europa League knockout ties.
Unai Emery's men lost to BATE Borisov and Rennes away. Napoli's attack is strong and their home form in the competition has seen them push opponents aside.
Napoli go into the match as the favourite at 5/6. Arsenal go into the fixture at odds of 7/2.

Arsenal are still sweating the fitness of midfielder Granit Xhaka. The midfielder missed the first leg through an injury. He is currently the Gunners' biggest absence. Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck, and Rob Holding are out with long-term injuries.
Napoli's only real injury worry is that of Amadou Diawara. The midfielder has been out since mid-March with a muscle injury. He isn't expected to return against Arsenal.
Ancelotti chose not to rest his key players at the weekend selecting a strong starting XI to play Chievo. Goalkeeper David Ospina did not play against Arsenal in the first leg, but he did return to action at the weekend.
It is worth noting that Napoli's game against Chievo was played on Sunday while the Gunners did not play until Monday night against Watford. Napoli will have over 24-hours more of rest than Arsenal ahead of the game.
Lorenzo Insigne to score anytime @ 7/4 - BET NOW
Napoli need their star player to step up on the big stage. Insigne wasn't able to do it for Napoli against Liverpool on matchday 6 of the Champions League group stage, but he could be the difference on Thursday night against Arsenal at the San Paolo.
Over 2.5 goals @ 8/13 - BET NOW
Napoli need at least two goals to have a shot at overturning the tie. At the same time, an away goal would almost put Arsenal through to the next round. Napoli must goal for goal, but Emery's tactics won't change.
Arsenal to qualify @ 1/5 - BET NOW
Arsenal set themselves up perfectly to qualify for the semifinals. The Gunners simply need an away goal to put even more pressure on Napoli. Although Arsenal have not been in good form away from the Emirates, they do have an immense advantage going into the second leg.
Napoli can score goals, but the side's lack of an undisputed No. 9 will ultimately doom them against the Gunners. Emery won three Europa League Finals in a row and knows how to get to the big game.
