Newcastle vs AC Milan odds
*Odds correct as of 17:20 on December 5
It’s make or break for Newcastle and unfortunately they go into this game not in fully control of their destiny. The Magpies know they need to win and hope PSG drop points against Borussia Dortmund in the group’s other game. It’s not impossible, with PSG’s away form, but Newcastle would have liked to have things in their own hands. Of course, they were so close to being in full control, but for Kylian Mbappe’s late controversial penalty to earn PSG a draw last time out. For AC Milan, they have to win and hope PSG lose to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League. Should PSG win, the winner here will drop down to the Europa League — and Newcastle would go through if it’s a draw.
