Bayern Munich will be aiming to take control of their Champions League last 16 tie when they host Besiktas at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening.

Having won 14 games in a row in all competitions, Jupp Heynckes men find themselves in confident spirits of putting one foot in the quarter-finals.

Latest Odds

With 18 victories and just one defeat to their name in 20 Champions League home games, they are clear 1/6 (1.17) favourites with bet365 to do just that by coming out on top in this one.

However, the Black Eagles were the only side to win all three of their group games on the road and are on offer at 14/1 (15.00) to pull off a shock victory here.

None of the hosts’ last 20 matches in this competition have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 6/1 (7.00) on them being forced to settle for a stalemate on this occasion.

Team News

Manuel Neuer remains sidelined, although Thiago Alcantara returned from a three-month injury lay-off in Saturday’s 2-1 Bundesliga victory over Wolfsburg,

Responsible for four goals in the group stages, Cenk Tosun will be replaced by either Alvaro Negredo or new signing Vagner Love up front after signing for Everton in January.

Vulnerable Bayern

Having hit 10 goals in 14 league games for modest Alanyaspor this season, Vagner Love should help to ensure Tosun is not too badly missed by a forward line that found the net in every single group game.

Indeed, Senol Gunes’ side will fancy their chances of nicking an away goal considering Die Roten have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight games in front of their own fans.

Tips and Predictions

Nevertheless, having scored 25 times in just the previous eight at home, Bayern are well worth 8/5 (2.60) odds to come out on top despite conceding against Besiktas.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
