The UEFA Champions League games continue on Wednesday and the two early games promise plenty.

[ LIVE: Champions League scores ]

One of the Premier League’s form teams, Chelsea, head to Amsterdam to face Ajax in a pivotal Group H game. Ajax lead the group with two wins from two but Chelsea bagged a big win against Lille last time out and are flying under Frank Lampard. For USMNT fans, there is also plenty of intrigue as Christian Pulisic is on the bench for Chelsea and Sergino Dest is starting at right back for Ajax. With Pulisic likely to come on as a left winger, the U.S. men’s national team stars could be in a direct battle.

Wednesday’s other early kick off sees RB Leipzig host Zenit as the Bundesliga side need of a win to boost their hopes of reaching the last 16 alive. Timo Werner and Co. will fancy their chances but Zenit beat Benfica 3-1 last time out and sit top of Group G.

Below is the schedule for Wednesday’s early games, with both games kicking off at 12:55 p.m. ET.
