Disciplined behind and perfectly refined, the Arsenal squeezed an unrecognizable Napoli and made its first catastrophic period to win without shaking the Emirates (2-0). The British are ready to reach the last Europa League square.
Arsenal 2-0 SSC Napoli
Objectives: Ramsey (15is), Koulibaly (25is, CSC) for the Arsenal
At first it seemed like a duel from one to one To use the words of Unai Emery. Who then had not taken the measure of a strange phenomenon: the funk. What brings you to your guts, you eat neurons and you stick your legs. A fear of emptiness and failure that seems to have taken Naples Thursday, unrecognizable for the Emirates and largely dominated by Gunners authors of an initial period that has often approached perfection. Final result: 2-0 for the English and Italians very close to the exit.
There is no time to breathe, the two teams dive right into the boiling atmosphere of an Emirates Stadium, which is quickly arousing its happiness. A statement that is especially true for the Arsenal, which quickly put the leg on the screenplay of the game: in the eighth minute of the game, Ramsey and Maitland-Niles go around the Neapolitan cage, but they see their two attempts diverted by Koulibaly. Never mind, Naples begins to see fear as a prey that knows its time soon, and the Gunners just adjust the viewfinder to fly. After a beautiful crossing of the London passes, Lacazette inherits the skin and finds Maitland-Niles, who in turn serves Ramsey. The Welshman only needs to shoot Meret at close range.
With his head upside down, Napoli breaks football and begins to suffer martyrdom: Mertens and Insigne are lost in the translationIn front, Zieliński has chained technical awkwardness and Fabián Ruiz has constantly played off-season. Completely at the side of his midfield pumps, the Spaniard sees Torreira unusually stealing the ball and then dripping a nice gesture behind his foot support. The former Samp & # 39; then try a soft strike, but deviated from Koulibaly, leaving Meret without reaction on his line. What to end up shaking a very fragile Naples this Thursday evening.
The Neapolitan bouillabaisse
Archidominator before the break, the Arsenal calms down a little and takes a step to wait for the Azzurri . Napoli then finds possession of the ball, but continues to tangle while Mário Rui banana his long raises and Insigne tries unsuccessfully to some solitary race revealing the impotence of his own. It is also the Arsenal that is on the verge of bending the game, but Ramsey and Maitland-Niles see in each round their attempts diverted by Meret's pog that keeps Naples alive. Excited, Ancelotti finally decides to field Milik, strangely demoted to a replacement role tonight, instead of an ectoplasmic Mertens. Alas, it's too late. Too late even though the Arsenal, raised from the entrances of Mkhitaryan and Iwobi, is close to planting a third banderilla from Ramsey who is collecting a gift from Maitland-Niles on the surface. The last dance step of an evening in which theGunnerswill have monopolized the decks and taken a serious option to qualify for the semifinals of this Europa League 2018-2019 vintage.
