Thiago Alcantara's opener, a Gokhun Gonul own goal and Sandro Wagner's first Champions League strike saw Bayern win 3-1 in Istanbul, Jupp Heynckes' men booking a quarter-final place 8-1 on aggregate.

Besiktas pulled a goal back in the 59th minute - Vagner Love capitalising on sloppy Bayern passing and slotting home from inside of the box.

"Besiktas hadn't lost here in the Champions League, so it wasn't easy".

Domagoj Vida's red card early in the first leg of their last-16 clash allowed Bayern to take complete control in Germany, running out 5-0 winners and all but eliminating Besiktas before the return fixture.

"In the second half we were not really in control".

But he lasted just 35 minutes before being substituted.

It was a surprise move by Heynckes with tough Bundesliga games against RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund to come this month.

Meanwhile at the other end Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng both headed over while Robert Lewandowski shot across the goal and wide of the far post.

Left unmarked at the back post, the Spain global raced onto a Thomas Müller cross from the right and coolly slotted home on the volley with his left foot from close range after just 18 minutes.

Just a minute into the second half, Bayern finally scored their second when Franck Ribery released overlapping full-back Rafinha and defender Necip Uysal lunged at the cross but missed and the backtracking Gonul diverted it past goalkeeper Zengin.
