Bayern Munich vs Besiktas Prediction & Betting tips
Almost to the day just a year ago Bayern shot in the knockout stages of the Champions League Arsenal FC 5-1 from the Allianz Arena. Next Tuesday (20.02., 19:45) Besiktas Istanbul will arrive in the Bavarian capital and it is to be feared that the Turks in the Allianz Arena could fare like the English last year. For at least on paper Besiktas is the easiest and most inexperienced of all possible eighth-final opponents. Nevertheless, coach Jupp Heynckes will not underestimate the score, not least because they finished the preliminary round as undefeated group winners and were able to win the three away games in each case. Regardless of that, we clearly prefer the hosts and recommend a tip on the home win in combination with over 2.5 goals. The special bet offers Tipico for an acceptable 1.42er Quote.
Bayern Munich :
The FC Bayern Munich is among many experts to the narrowest circle of favorites to win the Henkelpotts. This is not by chance, because after all, the Munich have been regularly represented at least as a regular in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in recent years. In the preliminary round, however, there was a small damper. Because at Paris Saint Germain Bayern conceded under the direction of former coach Carlo Ancelotti a 0-3 clap. As a result, Bayern bosses brought back triple Jupp Heynckes to the Säbener road and opened a new chapter in the current season. In the return match against the newly rich French, the Germans returned the favor with a deserved 3-1 win. Also Celtic Glasgow and the RSC Anderlecht were not a major obstacle and were respectively cleared out of the way, so that the Munich ended up with a 5-0-1 balance in second place.
It could hardly be better in the Bundesliga. Because after the 23rd matchday, the Heynckes-Eleven stands confidently in the first place and has already nineteen points clear of the first pursuer. Therefore, the Bavarians were able to spare some of the top stars in the dress rehearsal last weekend. Nevertheless, it was enough in the end to a tight and certainly not unmerited in the end 2: 1 victory. Especially in the domestic Allianz Arena Munich are unbeatable in the current season. Just once a draw spoils the otherwise perfect balance of fourteen wins over competition.
Besiktas Istanbul are the clear outsiders in the upcoming fixture, but that was true in the Gurppen phase of the Champions League. The fact that the Turks would prevail there against FC Porto, RB Leipzig and AS Monaco was extremely unlikely for most experts. But Besiktas has not only prevailed but even rocked the group. In the end, Istanbul lost a single group match and prevailed as a group first with a 4-2-0 balance, a goal difference of 11: 5 and with fourteen points. Although the competition certainly remained below their potential and of course not yet belongs to the international elite, the performance of the team of Senol Günes should not be underestimated.
In the Süper Lig, however, it is not yet optimal for Besiktas. Finally, the Günes-Elf is currently only in fourth place and must be five points behind the leader even feared to re-qualify for the Champions League. The situation would certainly be a bit better, if not the dress rehearsal had gone badly wrong last weekend. In relegation Konyaspor it was enough in the end only to a meager 1-1 draw. In fact, Turkey’s recent away record is rather mixed with just two wins from their last five games (2-2-1).
