Bayern München vs Besiktas – UEFA Champions League: In what is maybe one of the encounters that involves more disparity in terms of favouritism in the Champions’ League 8th finals
Bayern München host the Turkish of Besiktas.
But why all of this? It’s because Besiktas is one of the big surprises of this edition of the Champions League. First, I’ll remind you that the Turks will have the right to decide at home, because they finished in 1st place of their group while the Germans didn’t.
Still, that doesn’t mean much upon an encounter between a Champions’ League giant and a surprise team. Besiktas advanced in first place, and unbeaten, on a tough and balanced group with FC Porto, Leipzig and Monaco.
The team got some important results and presented a good football against historical teams.
On the Turkish league, their campaign isn’t as good although the team is still on the title fight. Besiktas is in 4th place with 41 points conquered, while the leader Istanbul has 46.

There isn’t much more to add about Bayern München. At the start of the season, the team was motivated to change manager and Ancelotti was dismissed, being replaced by the former retired Jupp Heynckes.
Bayern got back on track. The team isn’t that exciting, and they aren’t a very eye-catching team, but they have been managing to get the consistency of results they needed for them to be relaxed in the lead.
On the Bundesliga, they are strolling through, as usual, with a 19-points advantage over the 2nd place and 10 consecutive victories.
On the Champions League, the team advanced in 2nd place of their group, that had PSG, Celtic and Anderlecht, but they were able to fight up until the final moments with PSG and ended up losing due to the tiebreak criteria.
Bayern München vs Besiktas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I respect too much the favouritism of the German giant here. But I see Besiktas being very undervalued. The Turkish side has already shown good signs on this edition of the Champions League and Bayern hasn’t been that dominant.
Therefore, I believe that the markets in favour of the Turks like the Handicap or the team goals have value.
