Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 4.20pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be available on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD.


Arsenal enter this game after a 2-1 victory over J-League Division 1 side Urawa Red Diamonds. Lukas Podolski opened the scoring for the Gunners in the second half before Yuki Abe equalised for the Japanese. However, Chuba Akpom's strike in the final quarter of the game saw the north London club maintain an unbeaten run in pre-season fixtures.

Arsene Wenger's side have won all four pre-season games, a run that included a 7-1 hammering of Vietnam last month. Gunners' striker Olivier Giroud is in impressive form, scoring five goals. The 63-year-old Wenger is likely to field the French international to lead his side's attack against Napoli.

Meanwhile, the Italian side come into this after a 3-1 victory at home over Turkish champions Galatasaray late last month. Goals from Goran Pandev, Dany Nounkeu and Fernando Muslera made sure Rafael Benitez's side cruised to victory while Nordin Ambarat scored the only goal for the visitors.

The former Liverpool boss has won his first two games as manager of the Serie A club - the first was a 3-0 win over Carpi.
