Milan would have to win by six goals due to their inferior goal difference and an even head-to-head track record with PSG.
Newcastle looking tired
After some excellent performances that saw them shoot up the Premier League table post-November international break, the hectic fixture schedule is finally catching up with Eddie Howe’s injury-plagued Newcastle, who suffered a 3-0 defeat to Everton before losing 4-1 against Tottenham on Sunday.
Milan also came out on the wrong end of a five-goal blockbuster over the weekend as they conceded in the 95th-minute to lose 3-2 at Atalanta, having twice come from behind.
The hosts are currently favored with odds of 8/11 for a win, but their injury concerns and recent performances could provide the Italian team with an opportunity to secure a positive result.
Both teams are still in the running for the knockout stages, depending on the outcome of the Paris Saint-Germain match.
Milan looking for results elsewhere
While Newcastle requires PSG to merely lose points against Borussia Dortmund, Milan’s progress hinges on a PSG loss. Stefano Pioli, facing his own set of injury issues, particularly in defence, might find his team vulnerable.
Given that both teams have shown defensive weaknesses recently, the match is expected to be high-scoring, with odds of 4/7 for both teams to score.
