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.

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.

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.
