It extended coach Jupp Heynckes' record to just one defeat in 28 matches and took Bayern's tally in this season's competition to 21.

"The prospects are positive, It's looking good", Heynckes said after a 3-1 win over Besiktas to put Bayern into the quarter-finals of the Champions League for a seventh straight season.

Heynckes was appointed by Bayern for his fourth spell in October following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti, the Bundesliga side winning each of his European games in charge since then.

He suffered the first hairline fracture in his left foot in March past year and then broke two bones in it during the Champions League quarter-final at Real Madrid the following month.

Besiktas' best chance of the first period fell to Ricardo Quaresma in the 38th minute, but the Portuguese saw his free kick just miss the crossbar.

Yet Bayern substitute Sandro Wagner chested in a David Alaba cross with six minutes remaining to make sure of Bayern's victory.

Bayern has won its last two games-against Freiburg and Hamburg-by a combined score of 10-0.

Bayern entered the second leg of the last-16 tie boasting a 5-0 advantage from their clash at the Allianz Arena last month.
