Picking the Best Potential Bayern Munich Lineup to Face Besiktas on Wednesday Night

​Bayern are the firm favourites to progress to the Champions League quarter finals heading into this second leg last 16 tie with Besiktas. 

The Bavarians thumped Besiktas 5-0 in the opening leg in Munich and now travel to Instanbul to finish off the job. 

Here’s how they could lineup on Wednesday night. 


  • Ulreich


​Manuel Neuer is still not expected to return from injury until April. Sven Ulreich will continue to keep his place in goal. 


  • Rafinha


  • Hummels


  • Boateng


  • Alaba


​Joshua Kimmich is a yellow card away from suspension and so could be rested on Wednesday to prevent a ban. Rafinha could take his place in right-back. 

With no defensive injuries to worry about, Bayern could field a strong back-line to see out this last-16 tie. Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng take their place in central defence, while David Alaba continues at left-back. 

Bayern have not conceded a goal in any of their last four matches. 


​Corentin Tolisso suffered severe bruising to his ankle in Bayern’s 6-0 victory over Hamburg. James Rodriguez is also an injury concern and so both could miss out on Wednesday.

Arturo Vidal and Javi Martinez could keep their places from the side which put five past Besiktas in the first leg. In place of the potentially unfit Rodriguez, Thiago Alcantara could come in. 


​Robert Lewandowski is also a yellow card away from a suspension in the competition and could also be rested. Sandro Wagner could replace the forward. 

Thomas Muller scored twice in the opening-leg of this fixture and could add more to his tally in the competition on Wednesday. 

Arjen Robben bagged a goal in Bayern’s 6-0 win over Hamburg. He could start in place of Kingsley Coman, who will miss the second-leg due to a ligament tear.
