Besiktas are used to upsetting the odds

But Bayern will be tough to beat

Manager
Senol Gunes.

How they qualified
The 8-1 outsiders went unbeaten to top a section which included Monaco, Leipzig and Porto in some style.

Form
Forward Anderson Talisca is keeping Besiktas in the Turkish title hunt which, unlike most leagues in Europe, is a four-horse race. Talisca has bagged braces in three of his last four Super Lig appearances.

Transfer action
Top scorer Cenk Tosun, who notched four goals in the Champions League as well as scoring eight times in the league, was sold to Everton in a surprise transfer. Much-travelled Vagner Love and MLS forward Cyle Larin will attempt to fill Tosun's boots, while defender Domagoj Vida has arrived from Dynamo Kiev.

Prospects
They have pulled off shocks already in this season's Champions League but are unlikely to get past Bayern in the last 16.
