UCL: Bayern Munich Thrash 10-man Besiktas

Thomas Muller inspired Bayern Munich to a commanding lead in their Champions League round of 16 tie with Besiktas, as they took full advantage of Domagoj Vida’s early red card to run out comprehensive 5-0 winners in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.

Besiktas’ first ever knockout match in the competition looked like being a frustration occasion as soon as Vida was dismissed and, while they were not punished immediately, Bayern ultimately had little difficulty in Munich as a Muller double helped them take a huge leap towards the quarter-finals.

The Turkish side’s positive start was wrecked after just 16 minutes when Vida, played into a hopeless situation by Atiba Hutchinson, was sent off for a mistimed tackle as the last man.

A Bayern breakthrough always looked like a formality and Muller was the man to deliver it four minutes before half-time.

Bayern’s lead was doubled soon after the interval – Kingsley Coman neatly tucking into the bottom-left corner to make the task facing Besiktas even more daunting.
