Besiktas vs. Bayern Munich / Champions League – There is no uncertainty in this round and it is clear that Bayern will be in the quarterfinals and Besiktas will end their European path for this season, because it was 5-0 for the Bavarians in their first duel in Munich. It is simply impossible to reach against a quality team like Bayern and for Besiktas there is only the chance to try and say honourable goodbye, perhaps even with a win against the relieved guests. In the meantime, Besiktas has made three championship wins and a draw in the Turkish Cup, while Bayern has two wins in Bundesliga. In the only match of the Champions League that these rivals have played in Istanbul, it was 2-0 for Bayern. Begins: 14.03.2018. – 18:00 CET
For the first time in their history, Besiktas has played in the round of sixteen of the Champions League, but it is clear that this match will not be remembered for good. It was to be expected that they would be the outsiders against Bayern, however, they secretly hoped that they could achieve a good result in Munich a score that would leave hope that they would have at least a minimal chance in a hellish home atmosphere. It has come to an end they are practically completely free of chances, unless they create the greatest sensation and compensate for five goals backlog.
At the beginning of Munich, everything went wrong when Vida was excluded after just 15 minutes of game. It was clear that they would have a very difficult task to defend themselves and they succeeded till the finish of the first part when they were received a goal and then completely disbanded in the second half. Logically, Vida will not be able to perform again this time, and Pepe is also absent because of the injury.
Probable lineups Besiktas: Fabri – Gonul, Medel, Tosic, Adriano – Hutchinson, Arslan – Quaresma, Talisca, Babel – Negredo
The Bavarians have managed to settle everything in the first round, so this is just a routine for them and they are waiting for the draw to find out who will be their opponent in the quarterfinals. They are also doing a great job in Bundesliga, because it is certain they will again win the title of the champions, although it is not very evident on their results. Perhaps it was a bit evident against Hertha, when they played a goalless draw in a duel, which was played only a few days after a match with Besiktas. That is why in the previous two rounds they made two triumphs with exactly ten goals scored.
They have not received any in the previous four games. They maximally used the fact tah tthey had more players on the field in the first duel and duo Lewandowski, T.Muller had destroyed the opponent. In Freiburg they celebrated with 4-0 and T.Muller was great again, while they last weekend mastered HSV with 6-0, and Ribery and Lewandowski were great. Tolisso got injured in that match and he will not be able to play in Istanbul, while Coman and Neuros are also out of action. Considering the big advantage, perhaps coach Heynckes combines a little bit more when the composition is in question.
Probable lineups Bayern Munich: Ulreich – Rafinha, Sule, Hummels, J.Bernat – J.Martinez, Vidal – Robben, Alcantara, T.Muller – Wagner
Besiktas vs. Bayern Munich PICK
Everything is settled here and Besiktas will try to at least fix the impression a little bit from the first duel and we expect their good game at home. Bayern is completely relieved, which is why we expect a lot of goals on both sides in this match.
