  • SEVILLE SPAIN- JANUARY 28 Luis Muriel of Sevilla FC celebrates after scoring the first goal for Sevilla FC with his coach Vincenzo Montella of Sevilla FC during the La Liga match between Sevilla and Getafe at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Janua

After a slow start to the season, Bayern have been completely dominant under Jupp Heynckes and are running away with the Bundesliga title.

He has tough calls to make with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer the only absentee as he recovers from a fractured foot.

"The opener before the break gave us a psychological advantage and in the second half we saw a different Bayern team".

"There are far more benefits, because everyone feels important and stays fresh".

I am also an editor for Turning Point News and a foreign correspondent for Snip.And in case you were wondering, it's supposed to be pronounced "Wit-2".

Heynckes does not think the fixture has been decided, and wants his side to attack in Turkey.

Thiago Alcantara could start for Bayern tonight after three months out, while winger Kingsley Coman is fit for the game.

Since the Champions League's inception he's overseen 42 matches as Real and Bayern boss - including this evening's showdown - only suffering six defeats with one of those coming at home and the other being on neutral territory.

Do not test Israel, Netanyahu tells Iran, brandishing drone piece
He added: "I believe it is absolutely critical for Europe, for the world, to make sure we hold on to this agreement. Of Netanyahu's warning, Zarif said: "Well, if they try to exercise that threat , they will see the response".

'It's a superb result with regard to the return leg.

Knockout-stage debutants Besiktas, boasting an unbeaten record from their six group matches, made a bright start to the contest and looked particularly risky when key man Anderson Talisca got on the ball.

But Heynckes, speaking at his press conference before Tuesday's first-leg tie at the Allianz Arena, said: "Besiktas are a team that can play football and it's no surprise they are here".

Arturo Vidal had an attempt from the edge of the box easily dealt with and Lewandowski struck the post from a free kick soon after play resumed.

We hope it's not too serious, @jamesdrodriguez! However, strong competition has not killed off treble talk in Munich, with Bayern now on a 14-match winning streak on all fronts.

Besiktas' starting 11 had an average age of 31 years, 151 days - the oldest side they have fielded in the competition and the oldest in the Champions League since Apoel Nicosia on 3 March, 2012, v Lyon (31 years, 262 days).

"They will look for their chances, so we need to be prepared".

When a fan chose to tell them the Europa League theme song is better, they saw a flawless opportunity to have a dig at Arsenal, who are of course in European football's secondary competition this season.
