Ricardo Quaresma could be quick off the mark

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Muenchen celebrates
1 of 1

BT Sport 2, 5pm Wednesday

Mighty Bayern Munich put this tie to bed in Bavaria, winning the first leg 5-0, and the German juggernaut is going to be hard to stop in Istanbul as well.

Odds-on to complete the double, Bayern have travelled with a strong squad, which is hardly surprising given that the Bundesliga title race has been over for weeks.

Besiktas would love to be able to put the brakes on Bayern and they boast a formidable home record – they haven’t lost a league or European assignment in front of their own supporters since November 2015. In the Champions League this season they have beaten Leipzig 2-0 and drawn with Monaco and Porto.

With the tie effectively over, they’ve got a free shot at Jupp Heynckes’ men though boss Senol Gunes will surely pick his team looking ahead to Sunday’s crunch Super Lig showdown with Istanbul Basaksehir. Gunes may also have damage limitation on his mind.

Ricardo Quaresma can’t play at the weekend as he is serving a five-game domestic ban and the mercurial forward looks a fair price to open the scoring.

Bayern have failed to win only three of their last 27 competitive matches and have won five in a row in the Champions League, although they have conceded in three of those last four triumphs.

Recommendation
R Quaresma first goalscorer

Bet on this match at soccerbase.com

Key stat
Besiktas have won eight and drawn the other one of their last nine home games.


Team news
Besiktas

Pepe is injured and Domagoj Vida suspended, so the Turks will probably pair Gary Medel and Dusko Tosic at the back.

Bayern Munich
James Rodriguez (calf) and Arjen Robben haven’t travelled. Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso are injured.
