Arsenal are in excellent shape as they prepare to welcome Napoli to the Emirates Stadium and the Gunners’ form, allied with their home advantage, means they’re bet365′s 11/10 favourites to pick up a second win in Group F.
However, the Italian outfit, 14/5 chances at William Hill, have made a flying start to the season themselves, having taken 16 points from their first six matches domestically and defeated last year’s runners-up Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League opener so they have perhaps been underestimated a touch.
Boss Rafa Benitez has an excellent pedigree in this competition too while their strike force, including Gonzalo Higuain, can give Arsene Wenger’s troops plenty to think about in North London.
A modest play on the stalemate at 13/5 (BetVictor) could reap rewards then but with plenty of attacking talent available to both teams, it’s worth going a step further by tacking bet365′s 3/1 for the contest to be a score draw.
Arsenal v Napoli score draw – 10/3 (bet365)
