Napoli’s Allan Sees Arsenal Tie As ’50-50’
Napoli midfielder Allan says that the margins will be razor thin when his side meet Arsenal in the Europa League.
The teams play the first leg of the quarter-final tonight, with the return leg in Naples in seven days’ time and Allan thinks there is little to separate the teams.
“We're fired up and if we play as we're capable of, we can cause problems for Arsenal. We've got a 50-50 chance of winning the tie.”
The Brazilian admits that he his form has dipped recently, but he hopes to regain his early season confidence, starting against Unai Emery’s Gunners.
“A player must be aware that during a season there will be highs and lows. 2019 hasn't got off to the best of starts but I'm trying to get back to my form from the start of the season.”
