Besiktas vs Bayern Munich Preview

Besiktas vs Bayern Munich (0:5)

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Vodafone Arena

Date: 14th March 2018

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

Besiktas defied the odds when they topped their not-so-tough group in the Champions League, but it seems this round is the end of the road for the Turkish champions.

They were beaten 5-0 in the first leg after they were reduced to 10 men inside the first 20 minutes.

They have, however, gone on to win their last 3 Super Lig games and drew with Fenerbahce in the Turkish Cup.

They may not be able to totally eliminate the 5 goals they conceded in the first leg, but they will be eager to show the world what they can accomplish at home with 11 men on the field.

Besiktas have scored in all but one of their competitive home matches this season.

Bayern Munich have become one of the most efficient teams when it comes to dispatching teams and their 6-0 win over Hamburg at the weekend means they are unbeaten in 19 games, 18 of which have been wins.

They are now 20 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and could win the league and Champions League double yet again.

Away from home, they have won all of their last 8 matches, and they have scored at least 3 goals in 9 of their last 12 away games.
