By Joe,

Can this man take AC Milan to the next round? The Brazilian has been playing some great football of the late.

The final match day of the Champions League and Group C will need the final day to decide who goes through to the last knockout stages.  Zurich are out of the Champions League so nothing much to play for but pride. On the other hand, AC Milan have the upper hand qualify as second in the group. The Italian needs a win to safeguard their route to the last 16 while Zurich will have to play second fiddle all night.

FC Zurich are bottom of the Group C and their European campaign will end on Tuesday as they host the Italian giant, AC Milan. Their run up to Match day 6 has seen a bit of twist in the Swiss League. The weekend saw them losing 1-0 in the 218 Zurich Derby to Grasshopper Club away from home. The defeat has given FC Zurich further headaches in their league position as they are in 7th place, far from the form they showed last season. Never the less, they did somehow produce one of the shocking results in Champions League in Match day 1. Zurich pulled a 1-0 winner at the San SIro against Milan and Hannu Tihinen will hope to emulate that special night on Tuesday.

Ever since the defeat to Zurich at the San SIro, Milan have invented themselves and gone strength to strength. They are currently 2nd in the Serie A and coming off a 3-0 win against Sampdoria at home last Saturday. That game virtually ended after 24 minutes of play as the Rosserneri and Ronldinho was substituted in order to save his energy for Tuesday encounter. Milan needs a win to secure passage to next round but a draw could be enough, depending on how Marseille do against Real Madrid. Milan could be without G. Gattuso as he is ruled doubtful.

Champions League seven times winner, AC Milan, will need to do something drastic in order to go out of the tournament. The Italian will find a way to win the game and with their current form, it could be an easy Tuesday evening work done in the capital of Switzerland. Zurich will play their part and hopefully give a good show for their fans as a sending off for their support. Milan are favorites to win it.
