The thrills of Champions League football returns this week as Milan, last season’s semi finalists, take on Newcastle in one of the most exciting matches. For Milan, they head into this tie on the back of a 5-1 defeat to city rivals Inter. That loss was the first time Milan conceded 5 in a derby since March 1974. It was also a 5th consecutive derby win for Inter.
Reeling from the pain of that defeat, Milan would look to bounce back in front of their fans and begin the UCL group stage on a winning note.
Milan have loads of experience navigating the group stage of the Champions League having only been eliminated from the Group phase just once in their last 14 appearances. So, they will be counting on this to get something positive against the Magpies.
For Newcastle, the Saudi takeover, strategic transfer policy and the tactical acumen of Eddie Howe has earned them a place among the top sides in Europe and a ticket to the UCL.
Having last played Champions League football in 2002/03 season, Newcastle will be making their third appearance in this competition following a debut in the 97/98 campaign. In fact, their last match in this tournament was 20 years ago, hence they will be pumped to get on the pitch and write their names on history books once again.
Eddie Howe’s men head into this tie on the back of a 1-0 win over Brentford, their second PL win of the season, easing off the pressure as they face a very experienced Milan in the Champions League. Although they are relatively minnows here, they would be hoping to leverage on the Milan’s poor run against English sides.

Our Milan Vs Newcastle Predictions
Certainly, the UCL brings drama and excitement for fans and neutrals. Looking at Milan’s desperation to return to winning ways and how Newcastle are eager to get off to a bright start following a 20 year hiatus, one cannot but expect an explosive tie from start to finish.
Therefore, we are anticipating an attacking display with at least 10 corners played
using 1xbet’s odd of 1.99.
As mentioned earlier, Milan boasts of experience at this level as they are making their 20th appearance here, the most by English side. So, we expect this to bolster their confidence despite a seemingly poor showing against English sides in the past.
As a result, we expect Milan to win or draw with at least 3 goals scored. Melbet has odd of 2.00 for this prediction.
