With seven points from its last three matches, AC Milan is showing signs of a turnaround in Serie A. Now the Rossoneri hope to boost their status in Europe, too.

Milan hosts impressive Champions League debutante Malaga at the San Siro on Tuesday aiming to break the Spanish squad's perfect start in the competition.

Having edged out Milan 1-0 at home two weeks ago, Malaga leads Group C with a perfect nine points. Milan is next with four, Zenit St. Petersburg has three and Anderlecht is last with one.

Zenit visits Anderlecht in the other group match Tuesday, having beaten the Belgian side 1-0 in the last round of matches.

Zenit will be without key Brazil forward Hulk, who pulled a muscle in a Russian league match on Friday.
