And though Bayern Munich defeated Besiktas 3-1 in the second leg to win 8-1 on aggregate and progress to the quarterfinals, it is the cat whose presence is still being remembered fondly.

But both Bayern and the German national team will not be willing to risk a comeback too early, but might be summoned particularly if his team reaches the final four of the Champions League. We know Bayern have come here with the strongest line-up possible and we will try to play with our best side. The Citizens are already into the quarterfinals of the Champions League after beating Switzerland's Basel 5-2 on aggregate.

Following the seventh injury of Thiago's Bayern career, the German champions breathed a sigh of relief after club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt's scan on Thursday. "Besiktas tried a lot in the second half and it was a wild game". The teams resemble each other in their way of playing.

And as Heynckes led Bayern to the Champions League title in 2013 before ending his third period in charge, he has now won 11 successive matches in the competition. "Despite the 5-0 win in the first leg, we must start with intensity and my players are aware of this".

"He said he felt a pain on the sole of his foot, but the first assessment is not that bad". On Wednesday, Besiktas host the Bundesliga leaders in Istanbul, needing a miracle to advance to the quarterfinals.

"We have to wait for the investigations tomorrow, but I do not think it's that serious".

Besiktas will be without injured duo Dusko Tosic and Pepe, while suspended Croatia global defender Domagoj Vida also misses out.

The fracture was a recurrence of the same injury that Neuer sustained during a UEFA Champions League clash with Real Madrid in April 2017.
