After starting the season with a loss to Aston Villa one may have wondered if this season may have been a struggle for Arsenal but since that loss Arsenal have won eight of nine and are top of the Barclays Premier League. Arsene Wenger brought in Mezut Ozil from Real Madrid and the team as a whole have looked very impressive. Wenger had proclaimed before the season started that he had every faith in his squad and thought that the team could challenge in Europe and on the domesitc front. The addition of Ozil no doubt had helped but the form of Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud has been immense since the start of the season. Both players have scored four goals and are providing much more than that with both involved heavily in the build up and all round play of the team. Defensively Arsenal have struggled a little though and will face a potent Napoli strikeforce.
Rafa Benitez arrives back in England with his Napoli side sitting in second in the league table and having won five of six in the league thus far. Add in a huge win over Borussia Dortmund in the first game of the Champions League and you can see that this Napoli side is one to be taken seriously. Up front they lost Edison Cavani but replaced him with Real Madrid pair Higuain and Callejon. On top of that Hamsik has started the season like a man possessed and looks like a player capable of bringing his game to the next level.
Love Champions League and we've been doing really well so far this season here. This is another game that will be good to sit back and watch , there should be some really great football played in the Emirates on Tuesday night. The bet I like most on the night is both teams to score. I think this game ends all square for those looking to bet a result. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
