European football returns this week and will see Sheriff Tiraspol host Inter Milan in the fourth matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stages.
Sheriff Tiraspol have performed brilliantly in their debut Champions League campaign.
After beating Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 in their opening game, Sheriff Tiraspol picked up a famous 2-1 win over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Inter Milan in their last game.
Sheriff Tiraspol sit second in their group with six points from three games. They are joint on points with first-placed Real Madrid and will be looking to continue their strong performances on Wednesday.
