Bayer Leverkusen return home with a 3-2 lead in the aggregate scoreline of their UEFA Champions League playoff match up against FC Copenhagen. That has them sitting in a strong position to win and advance to the group stage.
“Copenhagen need two goals in our stadium to reach the group stage,” Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt said, via UEFA’s website. “We are prepared [for that] and know they will play differently from last week. Whatever the score, Copenhagen will play with more risk. It is important that we play in our style. We need good organisation and I hope we have drawn the right conclusions from the first leg.
“We want to push forward and to score, but we need to be solid – that will be the challenge. This could be difficult for us. The team wants to play in the Champions League; I want to be in the Champions League. Everybody wants that in Leverkusen and that is our focus. We want to mix with the best and that is the motivation for every one of us.”
