What Managers Say

Laurent Blanc: "We prepare every match to win, and it's the same for this match against Leverkusen. We are playing at home, we have to stay focused. We have a lot of respect for this team. We have to carry on from our performance in the first leg. You don't play a match in the Champions League just to get it out of the way. We have to carry on from our performance in the first leg."

Sami Hyypia: "We won't have any motivation problems: this is a Champions League game and you don't need to motivate your players. The team needs to build confidence and self-belief, and one way to do so could be with a good performance here. We will play to win, and aim to play without fear and impose our game. Of course it'll be very hard to win, but our goal is at least to deliver a good performance."
