Bayer Leverkusen live updates

Analysis: Lee Dixon on Leverkusen

I think United have got enough to win the game but Leverkusen are a decent side, and they've had a good start in the Bundesliga. They finished just a point behind Dortmund last season, so they're a good side – they'll come here with confidence.

Stefan Kiessling scores all their goals, he's the one that stands out. Bayer play a rigid 4-3-3, so there might be a few holes in midfield for United to exploit, depending on where Shinji Kagawa and Wayne Rooney play. They are a team who like to counter attack and get players wide, so we should be in for a good game.
