Berlin, Aug 28 - Bayer Leverkusen cruised to a 4-0 victory over Copenhagen as Stefan Kiessling produced a brace in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League play-offs.

The Werkself secured a Champions League spot Wednesday as they overcame Copenhagen 7-2 on aggregate, reports Xinhua.

The Germans left no doubts on their qualification for the group stage of Europe's top flight as they sealed the deal with three first-half-goals.

Copenhagen failed to repeat their performance from the first leg at home, where they gave Leverkusen a hard fight.

Leverkusen started brightly and opened the scoring when Son Heung Min utilised a back heel pass by Stefan Kiessling to slot home into the far post corner with just two minutes played.

Leverkusen doubled the lead only five minutes later as Hakan Calhanoglu scored with a deflected free kick goal.
