Bayer Leverkusen have been something of a surprise package in the Bundesliga and will be a tough hurdle for PSG to pass in their quest for Champions League glory. Read on for our preview, live betting odds comparison and betting tips for this Champions League last 16 match-up.

Leverkusen are riding high domestically, despite successive defeats to sides they would have expected to have beaten quite easily. Their home form overall though is good and whilst Man United brushed them aside 5-0 in the group stage they will give PSG a real test here.

It is the star-studded French side who are clear favourites though, with best betting odds for them to qualify of just 1/3 with Betfred and others. They are also favourites to win in Germany, with odds of 7/5 available at Sportingbet for those wishing to bet on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co, whilst Leverkusen are out at odds of 9/4 with Ladbrokes and those betting on the draw will get odds of 12/5 with Bet365 and others.

Overall we feel PSG will have too much and will progress but the Germans should have enough to make a game of it and the draw looks to be the value bet and decent odds. The aim in any Champions League two-legged tie is to stay in the hunt for the second leg and a draw would suffice for both sides on that front.
