Bayern Munich lead from the first leg 5-0 and the German giants look set to coast into the last eight of the UCL as they’ll reach the quarterfinals of the competition for the seventh-straight year barring an unbelievable collapse.

Besiktas went down to 10-men early in the first leg which hampered their chances of advancing after they topped their group but were rewarded with facing German juggernaut Bayern in their first ever appearance in the last 16.

Whatever happens on the pitch in Istanbul, you can expect a lively atmosphere off it.
