Muller & Robben find fault in Bayern Munich's Champions League rout

Muller & Robben find fault in Bayern Munich's Champions League rout

Bayern Munich, helped by two typical Thomas Mueller goals and two from Robert Lewandowski, romped to a 5-0 home win over Besiktas in their Champions League tie on Tuesday (Feb 20) after the Turkish champions played almost the whole match with 10 men. With AP Photos.Thomas Mueller and Robert Lewandowski both scored twice as Bayern Munich defeated 10-man Besiktas 5-0 to all but secure progress to the Champions League quarterfinals for the seventh straight season. Lewandowski sealed the win with two late goals. Kingsley Coman doubled the lead eight minutes after the break and Mueller grabbed his second midway through the second half.

"The red card definitely played into our hands", Mueller said after the biggest home first-leg win in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

At the Allianz Arena this season, Bayern have won 14 of 15 games, a draw against Wolfsburg the only blemish on an otherwise flawless home record.

Besiktas are in the Champions League knock-out stage for the first time. "We have to try to convince in the away match, [that aspect] is something we must improve on". With a rested roster, Bayern will attempt to end Besiktas' Champions League run in the first leg.

Besiktas gave a good account of themselves prior to Domagoj Vida's dismissal early on, which Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller took advantage of by finding the net twice apiece at the Allianz Arena.

After a promising start, Besiktas' hopes took a blow when Vida was sent off in the 16th minute.

Vagner Love fired a great chance over for the visitors, but Bayern dominated chances thereafter.

Bayern then laid siege to Besiktas and Fabri denied them the opening goal with a superb one-handed save at point-blank range to turn away Mats Hummels's header.

Coman sidefooted in from Lewandowski's pass in the 53rd minute before Mueller struck again in the 66th, this time sticking his leg out to divert Joshua Kimmich's cross past Fabri.

A scorer of 27 goals in 32 games this term - with 20 coming in the Bundesliga - Lewandowski admits to feeling "ok", with his haul of three in the Champions League but was quick to point out that he hasn't featured in all of Bayern's group stage games, the striker missing the Group B meeting against Celtic with a muscular complaint.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness ruled out any talk of Bayern repeating its 2013 treble from Heynckes' previous stint.
