Reporter’s view: Miracles do happen, but Beşiktaş are going into this game playing more for pride and prestige. Şenol Güneş made it clear that he wants a good send-off to a campaign that has brought a number of firsts and records, for the club and Turkish football in general. The Black Eagles will want to protect that three-year unbeaten home streak in Europe as well.

Şenol Güneş, Beşiktaş coach

We will try to get a result, playing our best game. We know Bayern have come here with the strongest possible line-up, and we will try to play our best side too. We are bidding farewell for this year, but we want to leave a good impression as we go with the aim of getting back here again next season.

Jupp Heynckes, Bayern coach

We have played in great atmospheres before, at Celtic, at Napoli, and here will be like that too. We will play in front of fans breathing with their team, fans pushing their team forward. We are looking forward to it. Despite the 5-0 win in the first leg, we must start with intensity and my players are aware of this. We can still perfect our defending, pressing, passing and attacking!
