Leverkusen led briefly on the night through Sidney Sam but goals by Marquinhos and Ezequiel Lavezzi gave PSG victory and kept alive their hopes of becoming only the second French side to win the European Cup/Champions League after Marseille in 1993.

The visitors -- for whom Simon Rolfes had a penalty saved by Salvatore Sirigu -- ended the match with 10 men as Emre Can was sent off for a second bookable offence.
