My Bayern lineup versus Besiktas

Bayern travel to Istanbul to face Besiktas in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16.

The Bavarians beat Turkish side 5-0 in the first leg at the Allianz Arena, a scoreline that has never been overturned in the Champions League before.

Bayern have three players at risk of a suspension if they pick up a yellow card, Robert Lewandowskim Joshua Kimmich and Sebastian Rudy.

Meanwhile, the Vodafone Arena is known for its intimidating atmosphere, so Jupp Heynckes may choose to start a more conservative lineup than he would usually for a big UCL away game.

James Rodriguez, who has been injured since starting against Besiktas back in February, should be available to play the game, but it is doubtful that Jupp Heynckes would put the Colombian straight back into the thick of things in front of a hostile away crowd at an intimidating stadium. Corentin Tolisso is also expected to be out after sustaining a contact injury against Hamburg in the weekend.

Here’s how we think Bayern will lineup against Besiktas:
