Arsenal find themselves atop the English Premier League and full of confidence. Napoli beat Borussia Dortmund, a team that made it to last year’s Champions League Final, and is also brimming with confidence. Aside from the Celtic vs Barcelona game, this might be the marquee match up. Napoli lacks the brand power or recognition of Celtic in the states, but they’re a good side.
Aside from that Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, Napoli also finds themselves in second place in Serie A.
“We are in a tough group. If you look at the teams Marseille, Dortmund and Napoli, they all play at the top of their league and in big football countries, so you feel of course for us it is vital to continue our run and to come out of the group,” said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, via ESPN FC.
“But you know as the well the importance of the home games will be decisive in a group of that quality.”
