Bayern Munich vs Besiktas Preview

Bayern Munich vs Besiktas

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Allianz Arena

Date: 20th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Bayern’s 2-1 win at the weekend continues their legacy as one of Germany’s top sides but the Bavarians who had to come from Behind to win that game have been showing that they are a very beatable side if their opponents can just learn to close out games.

Bayern have performed below expectations at times this season, but they seem to have a winning mentality that helps them get back at all times.

Going forward, they look unstoppable as they have netted in their last 26 games consecutively and the last time they failed to score at home was May 2015.

Besiktas should fancy their chances against this Bayern team as they do not lack the fire power to down any side just like they showed in the group stages.

They scored in all their group stage games and that included seven goals away from home.

Besiktas certainly do have the quality to cause Bayern trouble in the final third howevertheir defence may struggle to keep out the likes of Robert Lewandoski.

With players like Ricardo Quaresma and Talisca, the focus would be on outscoring Bayern in this game.

Talisca netted 4 times in the group stages and he is one the Bayern defence needs to keep an eye on.
