Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey and Kalidou Koulibaly’s own goal gave the Gunners the advantage ahead of tonight’s second leg at the San Paolo.
The Italian Club have not lost at Stadio San Paolo in European competition this term under Carlo Ancelotti, scoring 10 goals and conceding only twice in five contests.
They have lost just once on their own patch in Serie A – against reigning champions Juventus in March.
