They've also done rather well in previous CL seasons, once they qualified to the group stage. They were in a terrible state when they faced Bilbao in the 14/15 playoffs.
I call it how I see it. Napoli will advance to knockouts as long as they do not get a stacked group. Then go on to get creamed by a team at the level of Monaco or better. Roma will have to get an easy group or we will see them in Europa knockout stages.
