Besiktas vs Bayern Munich betting tips

Bayern Munich have already done the hard part in this tie, but that should not stop them from enjoying another comfortable victory when they visit Istanbul to complete the job of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.

The club known as FC Hollywood took full advantage of Besiktas having Croatia international defender Domagoj Vida sent off in only the 16th minute at the Allianz Arena for they ran riot when their opponents tired due to the numerical disadvantage in the second half.

It was only 1-0 at the break through a Thomas Muller goal but the Germany international forward later completed a double, as did striker Robert Lewandowski, while Kingsley Coman also weighed in with one for good measure.

In what looks quite an open Champions League campaign Bayern are again definite contenders, perhaps slightly being the ‘forgotten’ team, and it would be a huge achievement for their interim manager Jupp Heynckes to collect the trophy five years after having done so before ‘retiring’.

Obviously with the aggregate scoreline so lop-sided, the German giants only need to keep things solid on their journey east to ensure they advance without any alarms and that can make the second legs of such ties precarious to bet on, for example Manchester City losing to Basel.

But Bayern tend to be ruthless and have won 16 of their last 17 matches, the exception being when they still kept a clean sheet in a home draw with Hertha Berlin – which offers Besiktas very little encouragement of even making a dent in their visitors’ armour.

With a 20-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table, Heynckes does not need to rest players and we will count on the German champions not taking their foot off the pedal and beating Besiktas by a comfortable margin again.
