Bayer Leverkusen vs. Paris Saint-Germain: Lineups

Shaun Botterill

Javier Pastore is dropped for Paris Saint-Germain, while there is still no start for Yohan Cabaye as they travel to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen.

Ezequiel Lavezzi and Lucas Moura start for Paris Saint-Germain as Laurent Blanc's men line up against Bayer Leverkusen.

The Parisians will be hot favourites despitebeing the away side and the absence of Edinson Cavani through injury, and have reverted to their 4-3-3 in his absence, although Yohan Cabaye is still not starting for the team and Javier Pastore has been dropped from the starting lineup.

Bayer, meanwhile, go with a more predictable lineup, with a front three of Sam, Kiessling and Son ahead of a rigid-looking side as they look to gain the best result they can.

Bayer Leverkusen starting lineup (4-3-3): Bernd Leno; Roberto Hilbert, Emir Spahic, Omar Toprak, Andres Guardado; Simon Rolfes, Lars Bender, Gonzalo Castro; Sidney Sam, Stefan Kießling, Son Heung-Min

Paris Saint-Germain starting lineup (4-3-3): Sirigu; Gregory Van der Wiel, Thiago Silva, Alex, Maxwell; Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi, Marcio Verratti; Ezequiel Lavezzi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura.
