Europa League Quarter-Finals: Honours Even At The Emirates?

The Europa League has reached the quarter-final stage and Brand Ambassador Michael Owen looks forward to the 1st leg ties involving the Premier League sides exclusively for BetVictor.

 

Arsenal v Napoli

This is the third game between the teams in European competition with the home side winning the two previous encounters in the group stages of the Champions League back in the 2013-14 season.

Napoli have never won in England in European competition in eight previous visits, but I expect the Serie A side to score at the Emirates in what promises to be an entertaining tie.

The Gunners have won their last three home games in all competitions without conceding a goal, but I think it will be honours even and all to play for back in Naples next week.

Tip: Game to finish in a scoring draw 7/2

 

Slavia Prague v Chelsea

Slavia Prague have scored 10 times in their last two games in domestic football, but they are likely to find Chelsea a different proposition.

This is a big week for the Blues who travel to Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League and they had Eden Hazard to thank for three points against West Ham on Monday following a virtuoso performance from the Belgian magician.

Slavia produced the shock of the round in the last 16 when they eliminated Spanish giants Sevilla 6-5 on aggregate courtesy of a 119th minute winner. They clearly have goals in their ranks, but I expect Maurizio Sarri’s side to get a draw and score an important away goal.

Tip: Game to finish 1-1 7/1
