Besiktas v Bayern Munich Betting Tips Explained

The first leg could not have gone much better for Bayern Munich, who took firm control of the tie with a 5-0 rout of Besiktas. The Turkish side came into the knockout stage as shock winners of their group, but any hopes they had of pulling off an even bigger surprise suffered a setback inside the first 20 minutes and fell apart at the seams in the second half. Besiktas had Domagoj Vida sent off early on at the Allianz Arena and after Thomas Muller finally broke the deadlock just before the break, Bayern ran riot in the second half with four more goals to run out comfortable winners.

To say Besiktas now have a huge mountain to climb would be a massive understatement and there is absolutely no way we expect them to somehow dump out Bayern, so the question is can they at least salvage some pride on home soil? We have already seen a couple of dead-rubber second legs in this competition this season and both occasions the side trailing after the first leg did achieve a positive result in the return meeting – Porto drew at Liverpool and Basel won at Manchester City.

However, I expect to see Jupp Heynckes take no chances with his starting XI on Wednesday night if the weekend win over Hamburg is anything to go by. Bayern blasted into the lead with three goals inside the first 20 minutes, but instead of resting on their laurels at 3-0 they were absolutely ruthless as they ran up a 6-0 scoreline to warm up for this trip to Turkey in the best possible fashion.

They will now look to book their place in the quarter-finals with another win – and who would bet against them? Bayern Munich are unbeaten in their last 17 games in all competitions, winning 16 of them, and they have now lost just one competitive fixture since the 3-0 defeat to Paris St Germain in the group stage of this competition. They are flying right now – racking up wins and rattling up goals – so I would not be remotely surprised to see Bayern win a match that sees at least three goals.

And on the subject of goals, my second selection for Wednesday night has to be backing Robert Lewandowski to find the back of the net. The Bayern Munich hitman took his Bundesliga goal tally to 23 goals in 24 appearances with his hat-trick at Hamburg this past weekend and he has now netted 11 times in his last 10 outings to take his scoring haul in all competitions to 32, with five of them coming in the Champions League. Goal number six in this season’s competition could come on Turkish soil.
