Bayern Munich vs Besiktas

Bayern Munich vs Besiktas – Bayern Munich hosts Besiktas at the Allianz Arena on 20th February, Tuesday in the first leg of their Round of 16 UEFA Champions League fixture.

While Bayern Munich have all but secured the Bundesliga, Besiktas are fourth in the Turkish League standings and are facing an uphill battle for qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

Team News

Manuel Neuer is Bayern Munich’s primary injury concern while Besiktas will be without the injured Gokhan Tore and Atinc Nukan.

Bayern Munich Possible Starting Lineup: Sven Ulreich, Joshua Kimmich, Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, David Alaba, Corentin Tolisso, Arturo Vidal, Arjen Robben, James Rodriguez, Franck Ribery, Robert Lewandowski.

Besiktas Possible Starting Lineup: Fabri, Gokhan Gonul, Pepe, Dusko Tosic, Adriano, Atiba Hutchinson, Tolgay Arslan, Ricardo Quaresma, Anderson Talisca, Ryan Babel, Alvaro Negredo.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“The team is absolutely brilliant. You can see from their games against Leipzig that you can’t afford to underestimate them at all. We’re absolutely ready.”

– Thomas Muller, Bayern Munich.

“So far this season we’ve always seen ourselves as favourites. This is the first time we’re saying that we’re not going into the game as favourites. From the outside Bayern look stronger than us, but we’ll go out there and play our football.”

– Senol Gunes, Besiktas.
