Ex-Liverpool star Hyypia backs Leverkusen to knock off Man Utd

Bayer Leverkusen manager Sami Hyypia is of the belief that his side can get the better of Manchester United on Wednesday night.

The Germans host the Red Devils at BayArena on Matchday 5 of the Champions League and their Finnish boss suggests there could be a slight upset on the cards.

"At home we always play well," Hyypia told reporters. "Of course we want to win [but] it is not only an important game for us.

"We have to work defensively and offensively as a team. Then we have a chance."

Leverkusen sit second on the Group A table on seven points, one behind group leaders United, and two ahead of third-placed Shakhtar Donetsk who host Real Sociedad in the penultimate group stage match.
