Bayern München – Besiktas – Betting Tips
Bayern Munich – Besiktas / Champions League – It’s clear who in this duel between Bayern and Besiktas is a big favorite to progress to the CL quarter-finals. Especially in this encounter in Munich Bayern are considered clear favorites. They are in top shape and have not been defeated in domestic competitions for a long time, so they have the championship title of Germany practically already safe. On the other hand, Besiktas faces much bigger problems and the defense of the Turkish championship title is a big question mark, even though this team has long been defeated in the championship. Besiktas only drew last weekend, while Bayern celebrated with some difficulty in Wolfsburg. In two previous CL duels Bayern celebrated against Besiktas ever 2: 0.
Today’s hosts from Munich are in the Bundesliga in a great series of exactly ten wins, so they currently have even 19 points ahead of the second-placed Borussia Dortmund. Bayern can therefore dedicate themselves to the Champions League and this double match against Besiktas maximum. One can say that they were lucky in the draw, especially since they were behind PSG in their group and therefore had the chance to get a much heavier opponent.
In the last two league rounds Bayern celebrated minimal and identical victories. In Munich, they defeated Schalke 04 2: 1 and all three goals were scored in the first half of the game, while they celebrated in Wolfsburg only in added time after the penalty shot. Before that, Robben missed a penalty and it should be mentioned that they came together with a combined crew, so we expect a lot of changes in the line-up now.
Besiktas somehow do not succeed in finding the right form this season and it is not the defeats that cause them problems because they have lost only three matches so far, but the numerous draws, which is why they currently only occupy fourth place in the table, five points behind leaders Basaksehir, who will play in the season finale. In the last two away games, they have only drawn against Bursaspor and Konyaspor, although they are two teams from the lower half of the table, and four valuable points were naively lost.
In Bursa, they were even defeated, and could ultimately avoid them, so the fact that they were not defeated by anyone in their own stadium only gives a small consolation. Besiktas are one of the few teams that has not been defeated in the group stage of the Champions League and deservedly landed in the first group place. Nevertheless, they have been assigned a very heavy opponent. In the winter break, they remained without the striker Tosun, but for Vagner Love, Vida and Larin were brought into the team. Goals is injured and will miss this match.
