Sports Mole previews Anderlecht's clash with AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.

AC Milan will be keen to avoid an upset when they travel to Belgium for their Champions League Group C clash against Anderlecht on Wednesday.

The Italian giants, who have picked up just five points from four matches and are a point ahead of their hosts, are in danger of not progressing to the second phase of the competition for the first time since the 1999-00 season.

However, Massimiliano Allegri's side will secure qualification for the knockout rounds if they win and Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg fail to beat the already-qualified Malaga in the other Group C fixture on Wednesday.

Anderlecht defeated Zenit 1-0 at home in their last Champions League game and will give themselves a very good chance of making it through to the last 16 with victory over Milan in Brussels.

There are no suspensions for either side.
