With a place in the last eight all but secured already for the German champions, our tipster expects a low-scoring affair in Turkey on Wednesday

Bayern Munich are aiming to rubber-stamp their place in the Champions League quarter finals when they travel to Turkey to take on Besiktas.

Jupp Heynckes' side enjoyed a crushing 5-0 win in last month's first leg tie in Bavaria and the German champions will fancy their chances of another comfortable win here.

Latest odds

Given the gulf in class between the teams at Allianz Arena last month, it is little surprise that the Bayern are as short as 20/33 (1.61) with SportPesa to win this one.

Besiktas are playing for pride at this point and they can be backed at 4/1 (5.0) to win on home soil.

The Turkish team, though, have drawn six of their last seven home matches in this competition and SportPesa go 7/2 (4.50) that this match also ends all square.

Team news

Besiktas boast a number of familiar faces in their squad, with former Real Madrid man Pepe and ex-CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love amongst those in contention to face Bayern.

Munich boss Heynckes could opt to field some fringe players here, given that the German champions hold such a decisive lead in the tie.

Goals galore?

There have been at least three goals scored inside 90 minutes in each of Bayern's last 11 matches in this competition.

SportPesa go 10/23 (1.43) that there more than two goals in this game, while the same firm go 11/10 (2.10) that there are at least four goals scored.

There have been goals at both ends in six of Bayern's last seven away matches in the Champions League and SportPesa go 10/19 (1.52) that both teams are on target here.

Preview and predictions

Six of Besiktas' last seven Champions League ties on home turf, however, have produced fewer than three goals.

This match is effectively a dead-rubber following Bayern's 5-0 first leg win and so the Germans may lack their usual intensity on this occasion.

The 7/4 (2.75) quote, therefore, from SportPesa for fewer than three goals to be scored in this game could offer decent value for punters ahead of Wednesday's match.
