Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling believes the German side can overturn Manchester United this Wednesday night and secure a victory, according to Sky Sports.

The German side sit second in Group A of the Champions League, only losing one game, which was against United and sit one point behind David Moyes' team.

The 29-year-old striker believes this time Leverkusen will set the record straight come Wednesday evening: "The first time we played Manchester United, we showed them too much respect and were anxious on the ball."

He continued: "Since then we have played more games and secured some excellent results."

Bayer Leverkusen go into this game sitting second in the Bundesliga on a three game unbeaten run. At the weekend Sami Hyypia's team beat Hertha Berlin away from home 1-0; Kiessling grabbing the winner in that game and netting his eighth goal of the season.

Manchester United, meanwhile, haven't had the best of times in the Premier League, recently drawing away to Cardiff at the weekend and sitting sixth in the table.

But, Hyypia will be looking to exploit Moyes' zonal defending on Wednesday, as the German side are a dominant force at the BayArena, according to Kiessling.

"We are very strong at home, and don't forget, this game is as important for us as it is for them."

Manchester United will be without their top goalscorer Robin van Persie at The BayArena, but they'll have the in-form Wayne Rooney among their ranks, having scored two goals in the 4-2 win at Old Trafford back in October.
