34′Goal Heung-Min Son
TOP CLASS FROM SON! A long ball out of defence sees Bellarabi involved in a lovely buildup down the right before sliding it to the South Korean, who smashes a wonderful effort into the roof of the net. It may have taken a tiny nick off Luisao, but that was heading in anyway!
25′Goal Stefan Kießling
LEVERKUSEN OPEN THE SCORING! What a gift from Cesar the Generous! Son cuts in from the left to have a crack on goal. It seems to be routine, but the Brazilian spills it right into the path of Kiessling, who mops up the rebound!
