LONDON, Jan 9 (Reuters) - European stock index futures pointed to a slightly higher open on Wednesday as an upbeat start to the U.S. earnings season revived investor's appetite for equities after a two-day drop.

At 0701 GMT, futures for the Euro STOXX 50 and Germany's DAX were up 0.3 percent, while contracts on France's CAC added 0.4 percent.
