UEFA Champions League: Besiktas hoping to leave 'good impression' as they bow out to Bayern Munich

Besiktas vs. Bayern Munich live stream: Watch Champions League online

Bayern Munich book their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 8-1 aggregate success over Turkish giants Besiktas.

Bayern, who could secure their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title at the weekend, went 2-0 up seconds after the second-half restart when Gokhan Gonul volleyed a Rafinha cross into his own net.

Sandro Wagner, though, restored Bayern's two-goal cushion with his first strike in the competition in the 84th minute.

He suffered the first hairline fracture in his left foot in March past year and then broke two bones in it during the Champions League quarter-final at Real Madrid the following month.

Top scorer Robert Lewandowski surprisingly started up front, leaving Wagner waiting for his elite European debut until the last 20 minutes.

Referee Michael Oliver then had to briefly pause the game as a cat invaded the pitch.

For Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who replaced Carlo Ancelotti in October, this was his 11th straight win in the Champions League which set a new competition record.

Bayern extended their lead moments after the start of the second half when Turkey worldwide Gonul flicked the ball into his own net from a Rafinha cross.

Mustafa Pektemek forced a save from Sven Ulreich as Besiktas tried to level the game on the night, Bayern understandably lacking energy given their comfortable position.

The quarter-final draw will take place on Friday. Kingsley Coman scored the other goal.

Bayern entered the second leg of the last-16 tie boasting a 5-0 advantage from their clash at the Allianz Arena last month.
