Match background Only this chapter

Barring a record comeback, Beşiktaş JK will bow out of European competition for the season as they take on FC Bayern München in their round of 16 second leg, trailing 5-0 after a chastening first game in Munich.

• Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski both scored twice at the Fußball Arena München on 20 February, Kingsley Coman getting the other as Bayern recorded the biggest home first-leg victory in the UEFA Champions League knockout phase.

• No club has ever managed to recover a five-goal first-leg deficit in UEFA competition. Four have overturned a four-goal first-leg loss: VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach beat Real Madrid CF 5-1 at home in the 1985/86 UEFA Cup third round, only to lose the return 4-0. Leixões SC (against FC La Chaux-de-Fonds, 1961/62 European Cup Winners' Cup first round) and FK Partizan (Queens Park Rangers FC, 1984/85 UEFA Cup second round) overturned 6-2 away losses with 5-0 and 4-0 home victories respectively.

• FC Barcelona hold the record for the biggest first-leg deficit overturned in the UEFA Champions League era, recovering from a 4-0 away loss to Paris Saint-Germain with a 6-1 home win in last season's round of 16.

• Beşiktaş became the first Turkish team to win a UEFA Champions League group, finishing top of Group G to reach the round of 16 for the first time, although they came up short against their vastly experienced opponents in Munich.

• This is Bayern's 14th round of 16 tie, and the German champions – who finished second in Group B – are closing in on the quarter-finals for the seventh year in a row.

• This is the only tie in the round of 16 to feature two reigning domestic champions.

Highlights: Bayern 5-0 Beşiktaş

Previous meetings
• The teams crossed paths for the only previous time in the 1997/98 group stage, both games ending in 2-0 Bayern victories. Thomas Helmer and Mario Basler got the goals in the first game in Munich.

• Carsten Jancker (5) and Helmer again (31) were on target in the first half of the Istanbul fixture.

• The line-ups at Istanbul's BJK İnönü Stadyumu on 26 November 1997 were:
Beşiktaş: Fevzi Tuncay, Erkan Avseren, Topraktepe Serdar (Osman Üstünel 80), Alpay Özalan, Yankov, Tayfur Havutçu, Ertuğrul Sağlam, Hikmet Çapanoglu (Amokachi 62), Recep Çetin (Emre Eren 59), Lechkov, Oktay Derelioğlu.
Bayern: Kahn, Kuffour, Nerlinger, Matthäus, Tarnat, Fink (Babbel 87), Hamann, Helmer, Scholl (Zickler 83), Elber, Jancker (Rizzitelli 81).

• Bayern finished first in the section on 12 points, two places and six points above their eliminated Turkish rivals.

• Croatian goalkeeper Marjan Mrmić was part of the Beşiktaş squad although he did not feature in either game. He is now the Turkish team's goalkeeper coach.

Match background

• This is the first time Beşiktaş have reached the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds. Their best European Cup campaign came in 1986/87 when they got to the quarter-finals before losing 7-0 on aggregate to FC Dynamo Kyiv.

• Beşiktaş won 2-1 at RB Leipzig on matchday six – their sole victory in six trips to Germany, including this first leg (D1 L4). They have now scored two goals away to Bundesliga clubs, conceding 11.

Müller: We'll go to Istanbul to win

• Beşiktaş were also 2-1 winners at home to Leipzig on matchday two, their first victory against German opponents at the eighth attempt (D1 L6). They scored twice and conceded 12 in those first seven matches.

• Beşiktaş lost their only previous two-legged knockout tie against a German club 3-1 on aggregate to Borussia Dortmund in the 1989/90 European Cup Winners' Cup first round (0-1 home, 1-2 away).

• The Turkish side had their four-match winning streak at home in Europe halted by the 1-1 draw with AS Monaco FC on matchday four; they subsequently drew by the same scoreline at home to FC Porto. Beşiktaş are unbeaten in their last 12 European matches in Istanbul (W5 D7) since a 3-1 loss to Club Brugge KV in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 16. That is the sole reverse in their last 20 European home games (W10 D9).

• Beşiktaş drew all three home games in last season's group stage, and have drawn six of their last seven Istanbul fixtures in the UEFA Champions League, qualifying included. The defeat of Leipzig and the 3-1 third qualifying round win against Feyenoord in August 2014 are their only home victories in their last 11 matches in this competition (D6 L3), again including qualifying – although they are unbeaten in their last eight such fixtures in Istanbul.

• Beşiktaş have won only five of the 22 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the away first leg, most recently against Liverpool FC in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (0-1 away, 1-0 home, 5-4 penalties). They have never overturned more than a single-goal away defeat in the home second leg.

• Beşiktaş's record in UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L1:
6-7 v Olympique Lyonnais, 2016/17 UEFA Europa League quarter-final
5-4 v Liverpool FC, 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32

Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski celebrate

• Bayern's round of 16 record is W10 L3. Having won the last six, they have not lost at this stage since an away-goals defeat at the hands of FC Internazionale Milano in 2010/11.

• Twelve months ago Bayern overcame Arsenal FC 10-2 on aggregate at this stage, winning 5-1 both home and away. After the first leg of this tie, they have scored a remarkable 28 goals in their last six round of 16 matches.

• Their 1997 games with Beşiktaş aside, Bayern's only other contests against Turkish opposition came in the 1972/73 European Champion Clubs' Cup first round. Then they drew 1-1 in the away first leg with Galatasaray AŞ before easing to a 6-0 second-leg success in Munich; Gerd Müller scored three goals across the tie.

Beaten 3-0 at eventual Group B winners Paris Saint-Germain on matchday two, prompting the departure of coach Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern's subsequent 2-1 wins at both Celtic FC and RSC Anderlecht mean they have recorded four victories in their last 11 European away games – with five losses.

• Under Ancelotti, Bayern came second in their group behind Club Atlético de Madrid in 2016/17 – the first time they had failed to win their section since 2009/10, and repeated this season.

• Bayern have recorded home first-leg victories 51 times in UEFA competition and have triumphed in all but eight ties, including the last 11. When winning 5-0 at home first they have won both ties on aggregate; their record in those second-leg matches is W1 D1. The last time they won a home leg 5-0 was in the 1986/87 European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-final against RSC Anderlecht (2-2 away).

• Bayern's penalty shoot-out record in UEFA competition is W5 L1:
5-4 v Chelsea FC, 2013 UEFA Super Cup
3-4 v Chelsea FC, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League final
3-1 v Real Madrid CF, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League semi-final
5-4 v Valencia CF, 2000/01 UEFA Champions League final
9-8 v PAOK FC, 1983/84 UEFA Cup second round
4-3 v Åtvidabergs FF, 1973/74 European Cup first round

Head coach Only this chapter

Şenol Güneş

Date of birth: 1 June 1952
Nationality: Turkish
Playing career:
Sebat Gençlik, Trabzonspor AŞ
Coaching career: Trabzonspor AŞ (four times), Boluspor, İstanbulspor, Antalyaspor, Sakaryaspor, Turkey, FC Seoul, Bursaspor, Beşiktaş JK

• Born in the Black Sea port of Trabzon, Günes became a legendary figure at his local club, keeping goal in the Trabzonspor side that won the Turkish league title six times – and the Turkish Cup three times – during his 15-year spell from 1972-87; also won 31 caps for Turkey, captaining the team on five occasions.

• Made the natural transition from player to coach at Trabzonspor after hanging up his gloves, moving up swiftly from assistant to head coach; rejoined the club after spells with Boluspor and İstanbulspor, leading the team from 1993 to 1997, claiming the Turkish Cup in 1995 and a league runners-up spot in 1996.

• After brief spells with Antalyaspor and Sakaryaspor he was appointed Turkish national team coach in 2000 and proved an immediate hit, leading the country not only to their first FIFA World Cup finals in 48 years but all the way to the semi-finals, and third place, of the 2002 tournament in Korea/Japan.

• Left Turkey job after failure to qualify for UEFA EURO 2004 and returned to Trabzonspor but reign was brief and he later resurfaced in South Korea – the scene of his greatest triumph – with FC Seoul.

• Returned to Trabzonspor for the fourth time in December 2009 and led club to Turkish Cup and Super Cup triumph the following year, Trabzonspor then finishing second in the 2010/11 Süper Lig. Spent 2014/15 at Bursaspor, guiding them to the Turkish Cup final, before taking charge at Beşiktaş in June 2015. Went on to win the league title in his debut season – his first championship as a coach; made it two in a row in 2016/17.


Jupp Heynckes

Date of birth: 9 May 1945
Nationality: German
Playing career: VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (twice), Hannover 96
Coaching career:
VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (twice), FC Bayern München (four times), Athletic Club (twice), Eintracht Frankfurt, CD Tenerife, Real Madrid CF, SL Benfica, FC Schalke 04, Bayer 04 Leverkusen

• One of the best strikers in Bundesliga history, Heynckes hit 220 goals in 369 games for Mönchengladbach and Hannover between 1964 and 1978; won four titles and a German Cup with Mönchengladbach and was the league's top scorer in 1974 (30 goals) and 1975 (27).

• Aged 34, replaced Udo Lattek as Mönchengladbach coach in 1979; mentored Lothar Matthäus but failed to win any trophies, losing to Bayern in the 1983/84 German Cup final and reaching the 1986/87 UEFA Cup semi-finals. Replaced Lattek again in 1987, this time at Bayern, winning 1989 and 1990 titles; club general manager Uli Hoeness called his decision to sack Heynckes in October 1991 "the biggest mistake of my career".

• Moved to Spain, first with Athletic then led Tenerife to the 1996/97 UEFA Cup semi-finals, earning a season at Madrid, whom he led to glory in the 1997/98 UEFA Champions League but left that summer. Stepped in as caretaker manager at Bayern in April 2009 following Jürgen Klinsmann's dismissal; replaced Bruno Labbadia as Leverkusen coach that summer and began season with a German record run of 24 Bundesliga games unbeaten.

• His Leverkusen side finished second to Borussia Dortmund in 2010/11 before Heynckes left to take charge of Bayern for a third time; they lost 4-3 to Chelsea FC on penalties in the 2012 UEFA Champions League final at their Fußball Arena München but rallied to win a domestic double and the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League, beating Dortmund in the final.

• Stepped down and retired that summer but returned to the club in October 2017 following Carlo Ancelotti's departure, charged with leading Bayern until the end of the season.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League knockout stage: Did you know?

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 41 times, including AS Roma in this season's round of 16. Only twice – AFC Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos FC in the 1995/96 semi-finals and FC Internazionale Milano's victory against FC Bayern München in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by FC Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by RC Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home.

• Twenty-nine ties have been decided on away goals, including ten where the triumphant team lost the first leg.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals including Real Madrid CF-FC Bayern München in 2016/17, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool FC, and the 2013/14 final.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties.

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Club Atlético de Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid CF's defeat of Manchester City FC in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool FC (versus FC Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş JK) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at FC Schalke 04 in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16. Bayern eventually beat Sporting 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both FC Basel 1893 (2011/12) and FC Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburger SV 1983), José Mourinho (FC Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Only two sides have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome). Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in FC Barcelona's 7-1 triumph against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat reproduced by FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at FC BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against Manchester City FC on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.
