This Tuesday, in the opening game of Group F, the group of death that includes Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund, defending Champions League semi-finalists AC Milan and Newcastle drew goalless (0-0).

Lombard’s side made up for the loss with Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Inter, but coach Stefano Pioli will take the additional points against the Magpies, who returned to Europe’s top competition for the first time in 20 years. Bearing the weight of the match on their shoulders, they seized the best chance, something that might be lacking for a team like this.

England team goalkeeper Nick Pope blocked several chances for Milan. Particularly in the first act, Sandro Tonali returned to the San Siro, this time in black and white colors, starring in a subdued performance before his appearance. He was substituted in the 72nd minute.

The local team also lost goalkeeper Mike Maignan to injury, but was forced to be replaced by Marco Sportiello (81) in the final 10 minutes due to a muscular problem, but he scored in stoppage time. There was still time to save the keeper’s shot and show off. Sean Longstaff.
