After picking up only one point from the back-to-back games with Malaga, AC Milan go into this week's Champions League game in Anderlecht knowing they need a win.
They are fortunate that, with only five points picked up from their first four Group C games, they still occupy the second qualifying spot in the group. While Malaga are all but out of reach at the top of the group, the fact that Anderlecht and Zenit St. Petersburg have taken points off each other has helped the Rossoneri stay in contention.
But a win away to the Belgians on Wednesday is still vital. A Milan triumph coupled with another Malaga victory against Zenit would see Il Diavolo seal qualification, but even a draw in Anderlecht would make the last round of fixtures extremely nervy for Milan.
With this in mind, I go through the starting 11 that will best serve the Rossoneri in this crunch game.
