The British teams playing in the UCL tonight

Chelsea, Arsenal and Celtic will all play their penultimate Champions League group game tonight, with differing objectives.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Celtic will all take part in their fifth Champions League game of the season - all with their fates still undecided and something to play for.

The two English clubs could well qualify for the competition's knock-out stage tonight if results go their way. Chelsea need a draw against Basel, whilst Arsenal need to better Borussia Dortmund's result against Napoli in their match with Marsaille.

Celtic are playing for survival against an out-of-form AC Milan side. A loss or draw and Ajax win in the group's other match will see them eliminated. But if the Scots were to beat Milan and Ajax fail to beat group-leader's Barcelona, then Celtic would leapfrog to second place.

It may seem that there is a clear-cut favourite for all these fixtures, however no game is that straight forward in the Champions League.

Arsenal's opponents are French side Marsaille who find themselves bottom of Group F and can no longer qualify for the knock-out stage. But we all know how dangerous a team with nothing to lose can be.

Swiss club Basel beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in September and will be looking to claim a double over The Blues - a team that have not looked very consistent so far this term.

In the past, Celtic v Milan only meant one outcome. However this is not an AC Milan of old and the Italian's current form has been highly criticised. If there was ever a time to meet AC Milan, maybe tonight would be it. Plus at Celtic Park, anything could happen.

We do not know what will happen. But one thing is for sure - it will be a terrific night of football.
