North London giants Arsenal would be hoping to banish their away day blues when they travel to take on fellow Europa League favourites Napoli in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie.

Arsenal lead 2-0 from the first leg but their poor away record in the knockout stage of this season’s Europa League has the Gunners faithfuls fretting ahead of the second meeting with Italian Serie A giants Napoli.

Aaron Ramsey and Kalidou Koulibaly (own goal) got the goals for the Gunners when both sides met last week Thursday.

Arsenal warmed up for their game against Napoli with a largely unconvincing 1-0 win over Watford on Monday night.

The Gunners’ topscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game to secure three points in the race for Champions League football via a top-four finish on the Premier League table.

Gabonese international Aubameyang has now scored 23 goals in all competitions for Arsenal.

Napoli also won their last league game, a 3-1 away win over Italian Serie A bottom club Chievo Verona.

Arsenal are second favourites ahead of the Napoli game at the odds of 4.70 according to Surebet247.

A Napoli victory is at the odds of 1.66 while the possibility of a stalemate is at the odds of 4.20 as confirmed by Surebet247.
