Disaster struck for Besiktas after just 16 minutes at Munich's Allianz Arena when Domagoj Vida was sent off for bringing down Lewandowski as the Poland striker was through on goal.

Referee Ovidiu Hategan, who awarded Switzerland a controversial penalty in their World Cup play-off victory over Northern Ireland, took charge of last night's Champions League last-16 first-leg clash between Bayern Munich and Besiktas.

Now with their tails up, Bayern added a second, before all-but sealing their passage into the quarter-finals with two more strikes.

Heynckes also commented on the difference in the second half, stating that Muller's first half goal gave his side the impetus to perform after the break.

Bayern are quietly going under the radar in this season's Champions League and have a strong line up for tonight's visit of Besiktas, with Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels all back in the starting line-up having been on the bench on Saturday.

He said the Android Go devices based on Oreo will be up for purchase after the official announcement which is happening next week. The Bharat Go phone is expected to retail at about INR 2 ,000, but details about the specs and features remain unknown.

"Any talk like that is the job of journalists, the Champions League is a different competition and we must improve", said Heynckes.

"I think that it was very close, we made only one mistake.

You can not take any risks in the UEFA Champions League", Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes said. The most in the first half of a Champions League game was also by Bayern - in October 2013 against Viktoria Plzen (21).

"I have no A or B team - there is just one Bayern team", Heynckes said on Monday.

"We scored some great goals and played some good football".

Marco Rubio credit for being the only Republican to attend a televised town hall meeting after the school shooting in their state. Many students are planning to take part in walkout events next month to protest a lack of action on gun legislation.

A 3-0 thrashing at Paris Saint-Germain in late September was Ancelotti's final game before Bayern turned to Heynckes to fix the leaks.

"Any top player like Arjen Robben wants to play from the start, but we have so many good players".

The introduction of defender Dusko Tosic for striker Vagner Love signalled Senol Gunes's intent for the remaining half an hour of the contest - keep the score down and subsequently keep the tie alive ahead of the return match in Turkey three weeks from now.

"Wherever you play against Bayern, they will be the favourites and we'll enjoy the challenge".

According to current UEFA rules, in place since the 2014/15 season, yellow cards accumulated since the group stage are written off after the quarterfinals so that players go into the semifinals with a clean slate - unless a player picks up his third yellow in the quarterfinal second leg.
