Football Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips
The visitors are back in the group stage of the competition after 21 years. Interestingly, Milan went on to become the champions the last time Newcastle played in the Champions League in the 2002-03 season.
The hosts were eliminated from the semi-finals by arch-rivals Inter Milan last season. Their struggles against Inter continued on Saturday, as they suffered a thumping 5-1 defeat at the San Siro in Serie A. Rafael Leão bagged the consolation goal for them in the second half as their 100% record came to an end.
The visitors, meanwhile, returned to winning ways after three consecutive losses in the Premier League as Callum Wilson's second-half penalty helped them defeat Brentford 1-0 at home. In their last appearance in Europe, they made it to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League in the 2012-13 edition.

Prediction: AC Milan 2-1 Newcastle United
Milan may have only scraped into the group stage of the Champions League owing to Juventus' 10-point deduction, but the Rossoneri are our slight favourites to open their European campaign with a maximum and spoil Newcastle's San Siro party. Blessed with much more continental nous than their English foes, Pioli's side - who will welcome Tomori back to the first XI with open arms - ought to find their way past a Newcastle backline susceptible to defensive mishaps, although Howe's men should still give a good account of themselves in Milan.
