In their match on December 13 at St. James’ Park, Newcastle and AC Milan both have a chance to shoot straight up into their Champions League group’s qualifying spots.
With their 7th-place finish in the Premier League, Newcastle is having a poor season. Eddie Howe’s squad will need to put in a lot of work to close the 7-point gap between them and the top 4 slots in the toughest English division. In the last 4 games, Newcastle has prevailed just once. They were defeated 4-1 by Tottenham on the road in their previous match and the home team performed far better. Due to their ongoing injury woes, it is understandable why they lost their past 2 league games back-to-back. Callum Wilson has returned from his injury-plagued absence from the previous group match, but Murphy, Willock, Pope, Targett, Botman, Barnes, and Burn are still in the treatment area. They only managed to win four games in 11 competitions. They have suffered 5 losses during this time, but 3 of these 4 victories were against Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United in the Premier League, as well as a League Cup victory over United.
On the domestic front, AC Milan also suffered a setback this past weekend as they lost 3-2 to Atalanta away from home. Lately, the Italian guests have also found it difficult to maintain any kind of consistency in their overall performance across all competitions. After registering not less than 8 victories during an 11-game stretch from mid-August to early October, which included a respectable single loss, AC Milan’s performance has taken a concerning turn for the worse in the following games. In their last ten games across all competitions, Stefano Pioli’s team has managed to secure just 3 more victories. Milan hopes Rafael Leao is well enough to provide them a significant offensive boost and the absence of Simon Kjaer, Malick Thiaw, Pierre Kalulu, and Marco Pellegrino will be felt by an injured defense.
