Besiktas are used to upsetting the odds
But Bayern will be tough to beat
How they qualified
The 8-1 outsiders went unbeaten to top a section which included Monaco, Leipzig and Porto in some style.
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.
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.
They have pulled off shocks already in this season's Champions League but are unlikely to get past Bayern in the last 16.
