Thomas Muller laughs with his team as they stretch during Tuesday evening's session

Bayern Munich book their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 8-1 aggregate success over Turkish giants Besiktas.

Domagoj Vida's red card early in the first leg of their last-16 clash allowed Bayern to take complete control in Germany, running out 5-0 winners and all but eliminating Besiktas before the return fixture.

The Bavarians broke the deadlock on 18 minutes as Thiago Alcantara timed his run perfectly to turn home Thomas Muller's cross.

McKinnon, 49ers Agree to 4-Year Deal
The amount of money San Francisco is giving McKinnon seems to indicate that he could possibly be their starter for next season. It appears as though McKinnon may have found that bigger role he was talking about a couple of months back.

Heynckes's men could claim the Bundesliga title at the weekend if results go their way and they remain on track for another treble, the veteran coach having won the UEFA Champions League among three trophies before departing Bayern at the end of his third spell in 2013.

Thiago limped off before half-time, giving Bayern an injury concern for the rest of the season.

Besiktas meanwhile made seven changes from the side that beat Genclerbirligi 1-0 to go second in the Turkish League on Saturday, with Alvaro Negredo, Talisca and Ryan Babel among those to drop to the bench. As Tolga attempted to punch clear a relatively innocuous Rafinha cross, the ball ricocheted off defender Gonul at point blanc range and passed the hapless goalkeeper to give Bayern an extra boost they didn't really need.

NY shooting in Brooklyn leaves toddler and three others dead
The other victims were a male apparently in his late teens, a man apparently in his 50s, and a man apparently in his late 20s. Four people, including a child, were found shot to death in a Brooklyn apartment early Wednesday morning, police said.

Mustafa Pektemek forced a save from Sven Ulreich as Besiktas tried to level the game on the night, Bayern understandably lacking energy given its comfortable position.

Second-half substitute Sandro Wagner then capped the scoring for the visitors six minutes from time, when he chested in David Alaba's looping cross at the goalmouth.
