Besiktas v Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League, 14th August 7.45pm
Bayern Munich can just simply coast their way through this second leg because they did all the damage at home, winning 5-0. So it just a matter of trying to restore some kind of pride for the home side and they are at least unbeaten in twelve games on home soil in European action.
Besiktas v Bayern Munich Betting Odds*
Bayern Munich 8/13, Draw 7/2, Besiktas 9/2* (Betting Odds taken at 7:40 p.m. on March 12th, 2018)
Besiktas News and Form
It is looking pretty grim for Besiktas then in this one in what is the first time ever that they have been past the group stage of the Champions League. They were just overpowered in the first leg, not helped by picking up a red card. Their only previous European two-legged tie against a German side also ended in defeat, against Borussia Dortmund in the 1989/90 European Cup Winners’ Cup first round. Besiktas took a home win over RB Leipzig on match day two of this campaign, which was their first ever victory against Germany opposition. Now they stand at W2 D1 L7 from their previous efforts against Bundesliga opposition. Besiktas are unbeaten in twelve home games in Europe (W5 D7) and were on a five-match winning streak on home soil before back to back 1-1 draws against Monaco and Porto in the group stage. In the bet365 correct score a 1-1 may not be a bad option to consider for 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:40 p.m. on March 12th, 2018), considering that the visitors don’t have to really exert themselves. Beşiktaş have won only five of the 22 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the away first leg. Including qualifying, they have drawn six of their last seven home games in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich News and Form
Bayern holds a commanding lead then in the tie and their record at this stage is at W10 L3 and is close to improving. This will be the seventh in a row that they have won. After their five-goal haul in the first leg that is a total of 28 goals that Bayern Munich have scored in their last six round of 16 matches. After losing at PSG in their first away game in the group stage, they took 2-1 wins out at Celtic and then Anderlecht, which leaves them with a W4 D2 L5 record in their last eleven European away games, which isn’t as good as you would imagine. Bayern have recorded home first-leg victories 51 times in two-legged European ties and have won all but eight of them. Both teams to score in this one is at 8/15 with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 7:40 p.m. on March 12th, 2018) and Robert Lewandowski, if he isn’t given a rest, is the 5/2 first goalscorer favorite at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 7:40 p.m. on March 12th, 2018). He is one booking away from a European ban but has 11 goals in 9 games in 2018 and on the weekend reached 100 Bundesliga goals in just 120 games. Currently across all competitions, Bayern are on a seven-match winning streak on the road.

Prior to this season, the only previous time these two had met was in the 1997/98 group stage and Bayern Munich won both of those ties 2-0.
Who will win – Besiktas v Bayern Munich Predictions
The draw may be worth a flutter in his one. Bayern Munich basically don’t have to show up, while Besiktas have good European home form and it’s hard to gauge from that first leg what they could do.
