Newcastle United v AC Milan Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8pm UK Time, Wednesday 13th December 2023

 

Newcastle United and AC Milan sit level on five points apiece in the bottom half of the Group F table after five rounds of fixtures and both sides need other results to go their way in order to make it into the last sixteen of this season’s Champions League.

VAR caused yet more controversy when Newcastle United looked to secure a double over Paris Saint-Germain in their last European outing two weeks ago, the referee awarding the French champions a penalty in the dying seconds which Kylian Mbappe subsequently fired into the back of the net to deny the Magpies a famous European victory. Eddie Howe’s men still enjoy a superior head-to-head record against PSG who sit just two points above Newcastle heading into this final round of group matches, therefore victory for the Magpies along with a PSG draw or defeat would be enough to see the Tynesiders through to the last sixteen.

Any other scenario would result in Newcastle either dropping down into the Europa League or out of European competition entirely for another season, depending on how they fare at home to AC Milan on Wednesday. A lack of options due to injuries has caught up with the Magpies at one of the worst times possible and they head into this midweek outing on the back of two back-to-back Premier League defeats with an aggregate scoreline of 7-1, albeit on the road. On home soil, Newcastle have prevailed in all-but-one of their last nine contests across competitions and on that basis, there’s every chance that the hosts can bounce back from recent disappointments.

As for Milan, they have an inferior head-to-head record with PSG and as such, they can only go through if they win on Wednesday evening and PSG lose to group leaders Borussia Dortmund in the other Group F clash. AC Milan have failed to win any of their last four away games while leaking ten goals on their travels during that time, while they shared the spoils in a goal-less draw at the San Siro in their last meeting with the Magpies. As things stand, the visitors have only a single fit central defender and this will give hope to the injury-ravaged Newcastle side that they can claim a maximum points haul here.

Milan can still keep their last-sixteen hopes alive with a win here but at St James’ Park, we expect the Magpies to deliver in front of their expectant home fans and anxiously await their fate in the tournament.

 

Back Newcastle United to win and both teams to score at best odds of 13/5
