Mohamed Elneny’s Arsenal were handed a difficult draw in the Europa League quarterfinal after they were drawn against Italian outfit Napoli following the draw at UEFA headquarters.

Arsenal overturned their first leg 3-1 deficit against Stade Rennais in the round of 16 and prevailed 3-0 in the return game thanks to the brace of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

On the other hand, Napoli were through to the next round after defeating Austria’s RB Salzburg 4-3 on aggregate.
