Newcastle – Milan Preview
Newcastle hosts AC Milan at the St. James’ Park in a match from Group F of the UEFA Champions League. This game is important for both teams as they have chances to progress to the 1/8-finals, but only if they win and PSG lose against Borussia Dortmund. Let’s take a look at it in our soccer betting tips daily.
This group is as interesting as we expected it to be. Borussia Dortmund are the only team that guaranteed its place in the 1/8-finals. Now Newcastle and AC Milan have chances as well, but only if they win on Wednesday.
It seems that Newcastle are not in their best shape – they lost their last two matches in the Premier League against Everton and Tottenham. In these two games the Magpies conceded seven goals and scored just once. But they are much better at home – something we see on a regular basis since the start of the season.
Newcastle’s manager Eddie Howe still have a lot of problems with injured players. He can’t use important players such as Pope, Willock, Barnes, Targett and Sandro Tonali who is suspended.
AC Milan are in a similar position to Newcastle’s – they must win. Even if they don’t reach the 1/8-finals, this would guarantee them qualifying for Europa League.
Just like Newcastle, Milan lost their last match in the Serie A – 2-3 against Atalanta away from home. Giroud and Jovic scored for the Rossoneri, but Atalanta scored a very late winner in the 85th minute. It was heartbreaking for Milan.
Ismael Bennacer could return in Milan’s line-up while Yacine Adli is also an option for the manager Stefano Pioli.
That’s the soccer betting tips daily for the Champions League game between Newcastle United and AC Milan on Wednesday. Let’s see if one of these two teams reach the 1/8-finals of the competition.
