Bayern Munich coasted into the quarterfinals of the Champions League with a 3-1 win over Besiktas in Istanbul to complete an 8-1 aggregate win.

Besiktas found their only goal of the evening with Brazilian striker Vagner Love in the 59th minute, but the first leg score of 5-0 gave a great advantage to Bayern Munich.

For Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who replaced Carlo Ancelotti in October, this was his 11th straight win in the Champions League which set a new competition record.

Bayern posted a photo-shopped image of Wagner with the cat posing on his shoulder before including the feline in a man-of-the-match poll.

Top scorer Robert Lewandowski surprisingly started up front, leaving Wagner waiting for his elite European debut until the last 20 minutes.

Just a minute into the second half, Bayern finally scored their second when Franck Ribery released overlapping full-back Rafinha and defender Necip Uysal lunged at the cross but missed and the backtracking Gonul diverted it past goalkeeper Zengin.

The first match ended as a 1-1 draw in London.

Second-half substitute Sandro Wagner then capped the scoring for the visitors six minutes from time, when he chested in David Alaba's looping cross at the goalmouth.

However, the German side have won just one of their last 10 away knockout games in the competition (5-1 vs Arsenal last season), drawing four and losing five.
