Bayer Leverkusen v Paris Saint-Germain factfile

18 February 2014, 13:37

Leverkusen - Factfile on Bayer Leverkusen and Paris Saint-Germain ahead of their Champions League last 16, first leg tie on Tuesday:

Form: Leverkusen may be second in the Bundesliga, but they are 16 points behind leaders Bayern Munich and were beaten 2-1 at home by Schalke 04 at the weekend.

That defeat came on the back of a shock 1-0 loss after extra-time at home to second-tier Kaiserslautern in the quarter-finals of the German Cup. Sami Hyypia's side also progressed from their group despite conceding nine goals in two defeats to Manchester United.

PSG, meanwhile, are top of Ligue 1 having lost just once all season and, after cruising through their group, they are hopeful of improving on last year's run to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
