Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not taking his team's place in the next round of the Champions League as guaranteed, despite having a 4-0 advantage after the first leg, reports BT Sport.
PSG dominated last night's encounter with Bayer Leverkusen, with Ibrahimovic scoring twice. However, the Swedish star has insisted that his side must remain focussed ahead of the second leg.
Speaking to the PSG website after the game, he said: "We have a big advantage absolutely, but still we have to be focused and play our game and let's see what happens in the second game."
PSG head coach Laurent Blanc says that PSG are getting back to their best after their thumping win in Germany.
Blanc said: "We reproduced the kind of soccer we were playing in the first half of the season."
PSG welcome the German team to the Parc des Princes on the 12th of March, knowing that barring one of the greatest comebacks ever, their position in the next round is safe.
Leverkusen will need to dust themselves off and prepare themselves to try and reduce the deficit against the French champions. They will look at the sending off of Emir Spahic as the key point of the game, but by then the tie appeared already beyond them.
