"The cat of the match" gets Besiktas in trouble with UEFA

The Champions League game between Bayern Munich and Besiktas was interrupted due to an unusual spectator intruding the field on Wednesday. But this is a side that has never made it beyond the Champions League semifinals, and knowing how to win in Europe is a crucial factor.

Jupp Heynckes is the first manager in the history of the Champions League to win 11 successive matches in the competition.

"We scored at the right times and it's normal that we dropped off a little - losing some focus after winning 5-0 is just human".

Gonul who had been impressive in the first half was unlucky to score an own goal a minute into the second stanza after he deflected Rafinha's low cross into his own net.

With their team 7-0 down overall, Besiktas finally came to life, grabbing a consolation goal by Vagner Love.

"It was a really hectic game", said Bayern captain Thomas Mueller.

Besiktas are unbeaten in their last six Champions League home games, though five of these have ended as draws (W1).

With 18 minutes gone, Bayern captain Thomas Mueller swung in a cross and the Spain worldwide thumped the ball home from close range.

The 5-0 first-leg advantage will ease Bayern's worries over injuries which have ruled out Arjen Robben with a pinched nerve, adding to a list of longer-term absentees including striker Kingsley Coman, 'keeper Manuel Neuer and midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

Bayern next play on Sunday, when the Bundesliga leaders travel to RB Leipzig.

But that was as good as it got for the hosts and Wagner chested in Alaba's deflected cross six minutes before the end after Bayern found too much space down the right side of Besiktas' defence.
