AC Milan vs Newcastle Match Preview

Newcastle United will make their return to the Champions League group stage on Tuesday when they travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan. Both teams will be looking to collect early points in Group F, which also includes Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund. Both Newcastle and AC Milan understand the significance of accumulating points in the toughest group of the tournament to enhance their chances of advancing in the tournament, extending their journey well beyond the holiday season.

Milan come into the match on the back of a disappointing 5-1 defeat to their city rivals, Inter Milan. However, they are still the favorites to win this match, given their experience in the Champions League and their home advantage.

Newcastle have had a mixed start to the season, winning twice and losing three times in the Premier League. However, they have assembled a squad with an eye on the Champions League and will be buoyed by their recent win over Brentford.

Milan have a number of injury concerns, with Pierre Kalulu and Ismael Bennacer likely to miss the match. Fikayo Tomori could return to boost the defense, while Olivier Giroud is likely to continue in attack.

Newcastle’s midfield is expected to be patrolled by former Milan man Sandro Tonali, who shook off a knee injury to make the bench against Brentford. However, fellow midfielder Joe Willock is out with a calf injury and is joined in the treatment room by Joelinton, who is still struggling with a knee problem.

Match Prediction

Milan are the favorites to win this match, but Newcastle should not be underestimated. They have a strong squad and will be determined to make a good impression in their return to the Champions League.

I predict a 2-1 home win for Milan.
