Benfica is for sure a team with much more quality than Napoli.
I watched the entire first leg played in Naples and ended 2-3 for the away team and i can surely said that Benfica here is a better team and as wrote by mikewillbetit they have a better roster today with the add of 4 players.
In first leg Benfica scored two goals and dominated the match for at least 60-65 minutes. Napoli was unable to create big occasions and they committed a lot of fouls with a first red card and a second late red card in the final minutes.
In 10 vs 11 something changed and Napoli started to push a lot and create big occasions (a lot on free kicks and corner kicks) and in a crazy 6 minutes they was able to draw and impact on 2-2. But after just a minute by the draw they committed another big mistakes (always in 10 vs 11) in defense and allowed an easy goal to Benfica for the final 2-3.
After that they lose another player for another red card.
Of course after that they played 3 games each. Benfica lose in away against D. Kiev for 2-1 and again at home for 1-2. In last one they won against Besiktas for 0-3 in away. So they lose just against D. Kiev (first in table).
Napoli, instead, draw for 2-2 at home against Besiktas and was able to let alive a little chance to pass the turn with a big away win against Besiktas for 0-1. In last turn they lose at home against D. Kiev for 0-2.
No other to add, for me Besiktas is a better team than Napoli and it’s true that for them also a point could be good but if Napoli will start to push by first minute they can have some occasions in counterattacks.
So i’m on Napoli side of course, but i want to take this over line.
Over 2,5 @1.50 (2-0)
