After a two-decade absence, Newcastle United is back at the forefront of European football, making their debut in the 2023-24 Champions League. Their first Group F clash takes them to San Siro, where they will face AC Milan, a team that has won the prestigious competition seven times. Newcastle ended a streak of three consecutive losses by defeating Brentford in their most recent Premier League match. In contrast, AC Milan suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of their historical rivals, Inter Milan.
At a rainy San Siro, Inter Milan crushed AC Milan 5-1 in a one-sided Derby della Madonnina. Inter ended a 49-year wait to score five goals against their rivals. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Thuram netted for Inter, while Rafael Leao briefly gave AC Milan hope. The 34-year-old Inter veteran scored twice and set up another, with Hakan Calhanoglu adding a penalty. This win marked five consecutive victories for Inter over AC Milan, and it equaled a decades-old goal-scoring record. Despite the loss, AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli praised his team’s first 70 minutes. Milan, strong at home, welcome Newcastle United to San Siro after last year’s Champions League success against Tottenham but a prior 5-0 defeat to Chelsea.
Before their recent humiliation, AC Milan had strung together three consecutive wins in the top flight, while Newcastle United faced Brentford in their latest Premier League match, aiming to bounce back from three straight losses over the summer. Although they narrowly lost to Manchester City, slipping up against 10-man Liverpool and suffering a defeat to Brighton’s Evan Ferguson raised concerns. However, Eddie Howe still has the full backing of the Newcastle board. Their recent losing streak might have been due to the anticipation of their upcoming European journey, with their first Champions League match since 2003 approaching. In that earlier era, they faced Inter Milan, drawing 2-2 with Alan Shearer scoring twice. However, their upcoming clash with Milan in Group F will be their first competitive meeting, with Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund awaiting them.
