Ancelotti Confident Of Europa League Turnaround Against Arsenal


Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident that his team will be able to overturn the deficit against North London giants Arsenal in the Europa League.

The Italian Serie A giants have to overturn a 2-0 deficit against the Gunners if they want to continue their participation in the competition.

The Napoli manager told BT Sports that he believes that his players will be able to score two unreplied goals at home in the second leg with the help of their fans.

Arsenal took control of the quarterfinal tie with Napoli with two first-half goals from Aaron Ramsey and Kalidou Koulibaly (own goal).

The Gunners took the lead as early as the 15th minute when Aaron Ramsey found the back of the net after a flowing Arsenal move that ended with Ainsley Maitland-Niles providing the assist for the Welshman to score the opening goal of the game.

Arsenal doubled their lead ten minutes later after a strike from Lucas Torreira took a wicked deflection off Kalidou Koulibaly and into the back of the net.

Napoli wasted two big opportunities to get an away goal ahead of the second leg meeting at the San Paolo next week Thursday.

Lorenzo Insigne and Piotr Zelinski were the culprits for those opportunities either side of the halftime interval.
