It's crunch time in Champions League Group F with everything still to play for with two matchdays to go. This time around, AC Milan welcome Borussia Dortmund to San Siro, a highly-anticipated clash that could decide both teams' fate in this competition.
That's because, Dortmund start top of the group and with another win here, could secure their passage to the knockout stages of the competition for a second successive season.
But if Milan can claim all three points, they'll jump above their German opposition with one match left to be played in this 'group of death'.
Defeat for the Italian giants here, coupled with victory for PSG versus Newcastle in the other Group F game, would see them unable to qualify for the next round in this competition. The Sporting News previews the game here.

Despite the fact that these two sides played out a 0-0 stalemate in their first meeting in Group F, we're backing both to get on the scoresheet here.
With much more on the line, it should be expected that both teams will go for the three points – especially Milan, who realistically need at least a draw if they want to progress to the Round of 16.
If the Italian side do try and go for it with some attacking football, expect Dortmund to have plenty of opportunity on the counter attack especially given their pace upfront with Donyell Malen set to start in this vital clash.
Granted, all four of Dortmund's Champions League outings this season have failed to see both teams score. But on this occasion, it acts as our best bet at -140 with DraftKings.
