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

Delayed arrival in Milan ‘no big deal’, insists Newcastle boss Eddie Howe

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

Their group also features Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain and the Bundesliga’s Borussia Dortmund in what has been named the group of death. Newcastle come into the tournament as heavy underdogs but have shown enough promise and ability under Howe to prove that they are credible threats to the bigger sides.

Milan have lost just one of their last 13 competitive matches as the home side but, while Newcastle ended a run of three defeats with victory over Brentford at the weekend, their hosts tonight were heavily beaten by local rivals Inter Milan and will hope to respond with victory over the Magpies.

Half-time! AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

45 mins: Anthony Gordon holds his ground as Samuel Chukwueze looks to get into the box from the right. He dinks the ball past the Newcastle winger but Dan Burn is on top of him in a flash and boots the ball out of play.

No nonsense defending from the big man. The whistle then goes for half-time. Nothing to separate the two teams thus far.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

43 mins: Dan Burn looks for a cheeky lofted pass down the left wing to feed the ball up to Anthony Gordon but knocks it out of play. He then gives away a free kick for a late tackle and is showing a few signs of nerves.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

40 mins: Davide Calabria is booked for a bit of dissent and nothing sums up Milan’s evening more than the captain getting a yellow card for shouting at the referee in frustration.

They’ve been the better team but haven’t had the clinical edge in front of goal.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

37 mins: Considering that there hasn’t been any goals yet, this match has been a belter so far. AC Milan are rapid on the counter-attack with Newcastle’s backline looking increasingly nervous.

A cross comes across to Leao who nods it into the six-yard box. Giroud attempts a bicycle kick but misses the ball and Samuel Chukwueze’s follow up effort is headed over the crossbar.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

34 mins: Off the line! Newcastle are living on the edge here. A chipped pass comes to Rafael Leao who flicks it on before getting fed in behind the Newcastle defence by Theo Hernandez.

Leao weaves into the box, cuts past two defenders but messes up what should have been a simple shot. Newcastle can’t clear the danger though and shots from first Tommaso Pobega and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are blocked with one even cleared away from the goal line.

Somehow Newcastle survive.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

31 mins: Shot! Milan burst up the pitch on the counter-attack with Theo Hernandez flying down the left wing. He keeps the ball in play and pings a low cross into the box.

Olivier Giroud arrives close to the near post but turns his effort wide of the target! That was a close one.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

28 mins: Newcastle win a free kick in the middle of the pitch and knock the ball back to their defence. A cross field pass is won in the air by Anthony Gordon who also earns another free kick after being brough down by Milan captain Davide Calabria.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

25 mins: AC Milan have had eight attempts at goal already with six of those on target. Nick Pope is earning his paycheck so far tonight.

The longer Newcastle can keep them quiet the more likely it’ll be that Eddie Howe’s men can get a goal of their own.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

22 mins: Ruben Loftus-Cheek finds himself with the ball on the inside right channel and he brings it up into the final third before letting fly with a relatively powerful strike.

The shot is decent enough but continues to rise and Nick Pope calmly watches it sail over the top of his goal.

AC Milan 0-0 Newcastle

19 mins: Chance! Milan continue to create the best chances in this game and Nick Pope continues to deny them. A corner ball is swung into the middle of the box by Rade Krunic who expertly picks out the arriving Theo Hernandez.

His header is knocked into the deck but bounces up to the nice height for Pope who tips it over the crossbar. Newcastle then defend the next set piece well and earn themselves a goal kick.
