Milan: The only item left to determine in Group C of the Champions League is which side will qualify for the Europa League - Zenit St. Petersburg or Anderlecht.

Malaga have already won the group with 11 points, AC Milan have advanced in second place with eight points, while Zenit and Anderlecht both have four. Zenit visit a Milan side Tuesday that appears set to rest top scorer Stephen El Shaarawy, while Anderlecht goes to Malaga.

Zenit are third on goal difference, with its head-to-head record with Anderlecht level. So if both of the final group matches end in draws, Zenit will advance. Anderlecht need to pick up more points than Zenit or move ahead on goal difference.
