In this big match preview, we focus on the game in Italy where Inter Milan face Shakhtar Donetsk from 20:00 GMT.
Milan in the mix
Inter Milan have struggled to compete in this group so far and find themselves bottom of the pile with just five points collected from the first 15 that was available to them. The Serie A giants have won one, drawn two and lost two games to date, scoring seven goals while conceding nine. They did secure a victory last week and that means they are in with a chance of qualifying.
Milan may have left it late, but they have home advantage on what will be a crucial night for the group.

Inter fans know the team’s fate is in their own hands and they can’t ask for much more than that at this stage. Back-to-back wins would be enough.
Shakhtar Donetsk beat Real Madrid last time

They responded to score a stunning victory over Real Madrid last time out, however, a result that breathed life back into their campaign while filling the squad with confidence. Anything close to a repeat performance should be enough to see them end on a high note.
