Starting the game with a five-goal disadvantage from the first leg, the dispirited home side Beşiktaş tried to keep the ball in Bayern’s half early on, but Thiago Alcantara put the visitors ahead, 1-0, after 18 minutes. Despite Beşiktaş’ desperate search for the equaliser, the score stood the same going into the break. At the outset of the second half, Gökhan Gönül scored an own goal and doubled the Germans’ advantage. Wagner Love pulled one back for the Eagles at the 59th-minute mark and gave the home crowd something to cheer about, but Sandro Wagner increased the deficit again five minutes before the full-time to secure all three points for the visitors who made the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals.
