The Bundesliga giants travel to Glasgow tomorrow for the first instalment of the last-16 tie between the two sides, with the return match in Germany next week.
Earlier today, Rangers issued a statement on their official website initially advising that the second-leg would go ahead as planned, with fans inside both ends of the 30,210 UFEA five-star BayArena stadium.
However, Leverkusen’s official account tonight tweeted an update for supporters which revealed their home leg will now be played behind closed doors, as well as other crucial upcoming Bundesliga fixtures:
