AC Milan vs Newcastle LIVE: Champions League latest score and goal updates

The late arrival in Milan is “no big deal,” emphasizes Newcastle coach Eddie Howe

Newcastle United face AC Milan in the opening game of the 2023/24 Champions League this afternoon when they travel to the San Siro. Eddie Howe’s men have not featured in the group stages of Europe’s top flight since the 2002/03 season over 20 years ago.

Their group also includes Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain and Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the group dubbed the “Group of Death”. Newcastle go into the tournament as heavy underdogs but have shown enough promise and ability under Howe to prove they are a credible threat to the bigger teams.

Milan have lost just one of their last 13 competitive games as a home team, but while Newcastle ended a run of three defeats with a win over Brentford at the weekend, their hosts were badly beaten by local rivals Inter Milan this evening and will be hoping for a reply victory over the Magpies.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

37th minute: Considering there have been no goals yet, this game has been a blast so far. AC Milan are quick on the counterattack and Newcastle’s defense is looking increasingly nervous.

A cross comes to Leao, who nods it into the six-yard box. Giroud attempts an overhead kick but misses the ball and Samuel Chukwueze’s follow-up shot heads over the crossbar.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

34th minute: Off the line! Newcastle lives on the edge here. A broken pass comes to Rafael Leao, who passes it on before being sent behind the Newcastle defense by Theo Hernandez.

Leao weaves his way into the box, goes past two defenders, but botches what should have been an easy shot. However, Newcastle cannot clear the danger and shots from first Tommaso Pobega and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are blocked, one even being cleared at the goal line.

Somehow Newcastle survives.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

25th minute: AC Milan already had eight shots on goal, six of which reached the goal. Nick Pope is earning his paycheck so far tonight.

The longer Newcastle can keep them quiet, the more likely it is that Eddie Howe’s men can score themselves.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

19th minute: Chance! Milan continue to create the best chances in this game and Nick Pope continues to deny them. A corner is thrown into the middle of the penalty area by Rade Krunic, who skillfully picks out the oncoming Theo Hernandez.

His header hits the ground but bounces to a comfortable height for Pope, who steers it over the crossbar. Newcastle then defended the next set piece well and earned a goal kick.

Nick Pope makes a few more good interventions to keep the ball away from his goal before the Magpies manage to get it to the other side of the pitch.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

13 min: Save! Nick Pope comes to Newcastle’s rescue after they give the ball away in their own half. The defenders try to pull back as the ball is sent to Tommaso Pobega.

Pobega takes a touch of the ball and shoots a lovely shot towards goal, but Pope jumps to his right and deflects the ball away.

However, Milan is not finished yet and circles the ball to the back post with a cross. Samuel Chukwueze is there to turn the ball towards goal, but Pope has covered the near post and makes another great stop.

11th minute: A nice change of play from Newcastle sends the ball across the field to Anthony Gordon. He brings the ball to the ground and plays a short pass past Davide Calabria before sprinting behind the defender and collecting the loose ball.

Gordon dribbles into the box, but his last touch is poor and he can’t see a teammate in the box. Milan plays the ball away.
