Could Arsenal regret missed chances against Napoli? 0

Posted on April 12, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal recorded a very impressive 2-0 home win over Napoli at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League quarter-final first leg on Thursday night. The game looked like a tough one, but a strike from Aaron Ramsey and an own goal from Kalidou Koulibaly gave the Gunners the victory.

Although the result was a positive one, it could have been far more comfortable as the team from north London missed a number of chances against the Italian side. There is now a feeling that Unai Emery’s side could live to regret their misses.

The Europa League quarter-final first leg clash is a must-win one for Unai Emery’s side, mainly due to their inability to win away from home, even against the likes of BATE Borisov.
