Ac Milan vs Newcastle highlights

In a loaded Champions League group where every point is considered vital, AC Milan will rue their wastefulness as they are held to a scoreless draw with Newcastle at the San Siro to begin their 2023/24 European campaign.

The hosts created countless scoring opportunities from the opening whistle to the final minute, out-shooting the Premier League visitors 25-6 throughout the match, but failed to put any of the chances in the back of the net.

Rafael Leao was the biggest culprit, creating what could have been a memorable goal for himself with a brilliant dribble before short-circuiting at the crucial moment and botching his eventual effort.

The AC Milan midfield bossed the match in front of a raucous home crowd, but Nick Pope stood tall under early siege, and his defenders took it the rest of the way, heroically blocking seven different efforts.

With PSG and Borussia Dortmund looming for both these clubs across the rest of Group F play, a failure to snatch all three points here will be bitterly disappointing, while Eddie Howe will be thrilled to escape the San Siro with something to savor.
