Anderlecht remains at one point and at the bottom of the Group C standings. The group leader is Malaga of Spain, which faces second-place AC Milan this afternoon with a chance to grab control of the group.
In Group A, first-place Porto hopes to keep Dynamo Kiev at three points, while Paris-Saint Germain is at bottom-dwelling Dinamo Zagreb. The Arsenal-Schalke match is a battle of the top two teams in Group B, and in Group D, Manchester City, with only one point, needs a win at last-place Ajax this evening in Amsterdam.
