Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery both start on the bench as Bayern Munich host Besiktas in the Champions League.

Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery have both been named on the bench as Bayern Munich host Besiktas in the Champions League.

The pair were part of the starting lineup as Bayern defeated Wolfsburg on Saturday, but Jupp Heynckes has opted to drop the duo back down to the bench for the game at the Allianz Arena.

Heynckes has also decided to recall the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba and Jerome Boateng for the first leg of the last-16 tie.

Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich takes his place between the sticks, with Manuel Neuer still on the sidelines through injury.

As for Besiktas, Atinc Nukan, Dusko Tosic, Veli Kavlak and Gokhan Tore are all absent from the first XI, but the Turkish side are still able to name a strong side.

Former Real Madrid centre-back Pepe features in defence, while Ryan Babel, Ricardo Quaresma, Anderson Talisca and Vagner Love all have a part to play in attack.

Bayern Munich: Ulreich; Kimmich, Hummels, Boateng, Alaba, Martinez, Vidal, Coman, Muller, Rodriguez, Lewandowski
Subs: Starke, Wagner, Sule, Ribery, Robben, Rafinha, Tolisso

Besiktas: Fabricio, Adriano, Pepe, Quaresma, Babel, Medel, Hutchinson, Vida, Love, Erkin, Talisca
Subs: Tolga, Tosic, Gokhan, Lens, Tolgay, Oguzhan, Negredo
