Napoli hopes for San Paolo’s supporters to give them the strength to fight back against Arsenal

Ancelotti’s team loses 2-0 in London and will have to show their best version at home to qualify for the semifinals

Napoli will have to work hard and to show their best performance to be in the semifinals of the Europa League. The decisive 2-0 achieved by Arsenal in the first leg of the quarterfinals at the Emirate Stadium leaves no other option for the Italian side. The goals from Ramsey (18 ‘) and Koulibaly (25’) with an own goal decided a match in which Ancelotti´s team never felt comfortable and was not decisive in front of goal. Insigne or Zielinski had very good chances but fortune was not on their side …

“We are in a difficult situation and the second leg will be very complicated but we have the support of San Paolo that takes away all our fears,” warned Ancelotti, who refuses to throw in the towel: “It will not be easy but if we play with high intensity from the very first whistle we can make it to the next round, I do not think Arsenal is impossible”.
