Bayern Munich cruise into last eight of Champions League

Bayern Munich cruise into last eight of Champions League

Heynckes, who said he had no preference for his side's next opponents with the quarter-final draw on Friday, is now targeting a treble with Bayern on course to wrap up the Bundesliga title having also reached the German Cup semi-finals.

Bayern are now cruising towards a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title, they are now a whopping twenty points clear of their nearest rivals, Schalke.

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

The German giants were firmly in control of the contest after Thiago Alcantara and an own goal from Gokhan Gonul put them 7-0 up on aggregate until freaky scenes unfolded in the 49th minute.

However, the German side have won just one of their last 10 away knockout games in the competition (5-1 vs Arsenal last season), drawing four and losing five.

Right-back Rafinha whipped in a cross, but with the Besiktas defence focused on preventing the ball reaching the lurking Lewandowski, Gonul turned the ball into his own net.

Bayern made sure of their win, though, substitute Wagner chesting home from close range with six minutes to go after Alaba's cross deflected up perfectly for him.

Hummels, who along Jerome Boateng was booked in the first half, was replaced by Niklas Suele at the break before Bayern extended their lead thanks to a Besiktas own goal.

However, Sandro Wagner bagged Bayern's third of the night six minutes before time after controlling Alaba's cross at the far post before firing home at the far post to seal a 3-1 win on the night and 8-1 on aggregate.

Bayern Munich keeper Manuel Neuer could return next month as he continues his recovery from a foot fracture, coach Jupp Heynckes said Wednesday.

Besiktas have now lost all three of their Champions League matches against Bayern, losing by an aggregate score of 0-9.
