Napoli vs. Arsenal: Match Thread and TV

I TRIED TO CHALLENGE YOU TO A DUEL BUT YOU DUCKED - Scott Heavey

Here we go.

Aidan strung some words together in a very informative fashion about this match here, so I won't reinvent the wheel.  Or plagiarize the wheel.  Or whatever.  The job is easy to explain; gain points.  Or avoid a blowout loss, but considering that Arsene will field as strong a lineup as he possibly can, the former is hopefully the more likely outcome.  A draw or a win wins the group, but even a loss by less than three goals means Arsenal will advance.

Considering that Arsene has called this one of the defining matches of their season, though, I highly doubt Arsenal will be playing for the draw; even in the hostile Stadio San Paolo, Arsenal will try to be on the front foot and try to get something from this game.

You know the rules; be cool to each other, no posting of or discussing illegal streams, and, well, that's about it really.  Let's do this.
