Besiktas vs Bayern Munich predictions and betting tips for the Champions League second leg on Wednesday 14th March with an anytime goalscorer tip and a correct score prediction included.
This tie is all but over after the German giants hammered Beskitas in the first leg by 5 goals to nil. Bayern then drew their next game before getting their domestic form back on track by scoring 10 goals in their next two games. The league is already in the bag as they sit 20 points ahead of their nearest rivals. The same can’t be said for the hosts. Besiktas sit three points behind league leaders Galatasaray, but have won three of their four games since the first leg in Germany. Although they need a miracle to progress here, they will still want to take some much needed confidence n to the business end of the domestic season.
It is expected that Bayern Munich will make several changes for this dead rubber, but even then the gulf in class should be evident. The 5-0 scoreline in the first leg wasn’t even that flattering as it was a constant onslaught from the Bavarians. We can only see one winner here regardless of rotation and that is the visitors. We do think that the Turkish side will at least manage to find the net themselves this time around though. They have scored more than one goal in all but one of their last 14 games when playing at the vociferous Vodafone Arena. They scored in each of their home matches in the group stage against tough opposition and we can see the hostile crowd encouraging them enough to score at least once. The Germans will still show their class though, so the first of our Besiktas vs Bayern Munich predictions is for Bayern to win and BTTS.
The obvious choice for a goalscorer whenever Bayern play is Robert Lewandowski as he is extremely prolific. However, with the tie already in the bag, we are expecting Jupp Heynckes to rest a few of his star players including the Polish international. That offers the chance to look for value elsewhere and the man we fancy is Sandro Wagner. The German international was signed from Hoffenheim in January but is yet to cement a regular starting place. He has managed to score three goals in seven appearances though, so is very dangerous when he gets a chance. He is expected to get a start here and with the amount of chances Bayern create, we are backing him to take at least one. The second of our Besiktas vs Bayern Munich betting tips, is for Sandro Wagner to score anytime.
The final Besiktas vs Bayern Munich betting tip is going to be a correct score pick. We have mentioned that we think Besiktas will score, but can only see that total being one. The Germans are averaging exactly two goals away from home this season. If they were guaranteed to field a full strength side then we may look at a higher figure, but with the expected changes, we are going to have a punt on a 2-1 victory for the visitors.
Bayern are favourites to win in 90 minutes here at odds of 8/13, whilst the home side are big outsiders at 9/2. If you fancy the visitors to keep a clean sheet as they did in the first leg then BTTS- No is the way to go at odds of 6/4.
