AC Milan Face Newcastle United In Do or Die Fixture With Europe On The Line

The Rossoneri are in a tough spot as there is literally no room for error and the season seems to be on the line.

AC Milan travel to the North of England to face Newcastle United at St James Park in their final group stage match of the Champions League where they must win. The Rossoneri failed to take maximum points in their opening two games of the group and now find themselves at the bottom with five points after five games.

Milan need to win and need Paris St Germain to lose to Borussia Dortmund to go through. If Milan win and PSG win or draw, then it will be the Europa League for us. If we lose or draw, we are out of Europe.

Stefano Pioli boldly goes with the same formation and team that collapsed against Atalanta over the weekend into arguably the biggest tie of the season as the title hopes have faded.

The only change will be Rafael Leao replacing Samuel Chukwueze in the starting line up and Christian Pulisic reverting back to the right wing as a result.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Tomori, Hernandez, Florenzi, Reijnders, Musah, Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
