Team News

Corentin Tolisso has been ruled out with a bruised shin, while Manuel Neuer and Kinglsey Coman are longer-term absentees. With their place in the quarter-finals all-but-assured, they may choose to rest players. Sandro Wagner and Rafinha are among those likely to return.

Besiktas vs Bayern Munich Head-to-Head Stats

Bayern Munich won both games against Besiktas 2-0, when they met in the late 1990s, before they sailed to their 5-0 first-leg win.

Besiktas vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips

Fans who saw how Manchester City and Liverpool took their respective feet off the gas for their UEFA Champions League last-16 second legs could be forgiving for fearing more of the same in Turkey.

Bayern Munich will rest players, but the strength off the bench is superb - a similar team to that which is likely to play on Wednesday beat Wolfsburg in the league recently.

They do not need to go full gas to book their place in the quarter-finals, but could still get a result with the likes of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery still available.

Besiktas, meanwhile, have only pride to play for but will hope to play with 11, as opposed to ten for the last 75 minutes, this time around.

The red card undoubtedly made a difficult job even tougher for Besiktas in the first leg, and so the scoreline could be a bit misleading.

However, even at full strength, Besiktas will find it tough going against the run-away German leaders.

Besiktas vs Bayern Munich Recommended bets with odds

Even while likely they will rotate their options, Bayern Munich are still favourites at a best price of 8/13 with William Hill and Bet365.

Another win to nil improves the odds, however, to 9/4 with Bet365.

While Bayern have had no problems scoring in recent weeks, with a much-changed team they might well ease off this time - a Bayern win and under 2.5 goals will return 17/4 with Ladbrokes.

A bet on the goalscorer is risky, given how many changes Bayern might make, but Sandro Wagner should play up front and can be backed at 7/5 with Ladbrokes to score at any time.

Besiktas vs Bayern Munich Prediction

This tie is over as far as a place in the quarter-final is concerned. Bayern won the first leg 5-0, and a comfortable win to nil in the second would book their last-eight place nicely.
