Besiktas vs. Bayern Munich live stream

Bayern Munich cruise into quarter-finals after 8-1 aggregate win over Besiktas

Neuer could return next month, claims Heynckes

Barring a collapse of historic proportions, Bayern Munich will advance to the Champions League quarterfinals after the second leg of its round of 16 tie against Besiktas on Wednesday. Only Caner Erkin, Gary Medel, Ricardo Quaresma and Vagner Love kept their places.

With Bayern already up five goals on Besiktas, manager Jupp Heynckes will likely play more conservatively than normal and give more players a chance to start.

The German giants were firmly in control of the contest after Thiago Alcantara and an own goal from Gokhan Gonul put them 7-0 up on aggregate until freakish scenes unfolded in the 49th minute.

Bayern's away goal meant Besiktas needed seven in response to progress.

The cat jumped onto an advertising hoarding before dropping down to the pitch in front of a sold-out stadium.

The producers initially pitched the show to Netflix bosses as a six-season series, with the cast changing three times. She added that many women don't realise how much men get paid, and this may explain the imbalance on The Crown .

Besiktas improved and were rewarded when they pulled a goal back following a mistake in the Bayern defence, Love slotting into the bottom corner past Sven Ulreich for his first Champions League goal since 2011.

"If his injury is serious, that would be very upsetting for us, but I am always optimistic and I hope it is not too serious", he said.

Just a minute into the second half, Bayern finally scored their second when Franck Ribery released overlapping full-back Rafinha and defender Necip Uysal lunged at the cross but missed and the backtracking Gonul diverted it past goalkeeper Zengin. Their side can wrap up the league title this weekend, while a cup semifinal against Schalke also awaits.

Muller swung over a cross from the right and Thiago stole in at the far post ahead of Gonul to volley home first time with his weaker left foot.
