Bayern Munich v Besiktas Betting Preview


Bayern entertain Turkish champions Besiktas in the first leg of their last16 tie on Tuesday, and Heynckes expects the usual suspects to be in contention come the final reckoning while he has also been impressed by the performances of the Premier League contingent.

After winning their group, Besiktas have the unwanted task of going to Germany and facing Bayern Munich. They were also one of four teams to remain unbeaten in this season's group stages, alongside Barcelona, Liverpool and Tottenham.

Heynckes, who steered the five-time champions to the 2013 title, turns 73 in May, but says he still feels the "tension build" for a Champions League game.

Besiktas had an impressive showing in the group stages, and the team now sports a seven-match winning streak in the competition.

Jupp Heynckes has won 71% of his games in the competition (29 out of 41), the second best ratio after Luis Enrique (73%) among managers to have taken charge of at least 30 games.

Momentum was very much with the Bundesliga pacesetters from the moment Besiktas went down to 10 men, however, and Fabricio would be required again soon after to somehow keep out Lewandowski's header from point-blank range.

Heynckes, 72, also selected James Rodriguez to play alongside Javi Martinez and Arturo Vidal in midfield for the last-16 first leg, with Robert Lewandowski up front.
