Napoli vs Arsenal teams: Mesut Ozil on the bench as Unai Emery elects to play Lacazette and Aubameyang together in Europa League second leg
Mesut Ozil has been left OUT of Unai Emery’s Arsenal XI for their Europa League second leg at Napoli.
The Gunners won the quarter-final first leg 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium and know they’ll have to be at their very best to secure a place in the last four.
And despite acquitting himself well in the first leg, Ozil has been named on the bench while Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang start up front together.
Elsewhere, Sokratis Papastathopoulos returns to the starting XI as his suspension only applies to domestic matches.
The hosts have named a strong line-up which features the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Lorenzo Insigne but striker Dries Mertens is on the bench. Below you can see the confirmed line-ups for both sides.
