The UEFA Champions League continues on Wednesday with groups A, B, C, and D in action.
Zenit St. Petersburg vs. AC Milan 12 PM ET
This will be an interesting match to watch. Zenit was stunned in their match against Malaga by losing 3-0 to start their UCL campaign. They were the favorites in that game and should have won, but thye played poorly and looked tentative in Spain. Meanwhile their opponents are also massive underperformers. AC Milan was a favorite to take this group but only earned 1 point after drawing with Anderlecht. Now they face their toughest opponent after weeks of what has been mediocre soccer at best. Both of these clubs need a win before they give Malaga a chance to start running away with it. They were my picks to get out of the group but one of these guys could be headed south after this match.

Prediction: A draw is likely. AC can win it but Zenit is home and will be at their best. 1-1 draw.
Anderlecht vs. Malaga 2:45 PM ET
Malaga has been one of the top teams in la Liga this season. In fact, they have yet to lose a match and are poised to take over the group with a win against Anderlecht. They are coming off a 4-0 destruction of Betis and are probably riding into this one knowing that a win puts them in a great position to win the group. Anderlecht also sees this as an opportunity to score some points after an impressive 0-0 draw with AC Milan. They have won two straight in the Juliper League since that draw and are in great shape to shock Malaga.
Prediction: Another draw here. Anderlecht is at home and will wage a strong battle. 1-1.
