The Champion League 23/24 begins today with a match in the so-called "Group of Death" as AC Milan face Newcastle at the iconic San Siro stadium — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN online and on TV from anywhere. We have the team news just below too.
Last year, AC Milan made the Champions League semi-final, only to be defeated across two legs by arch-rivals Inter Milan. This season they will hope to go a step further, but being drawn in Group F will make that harder than perhaps anticipated. The group contains PSG, Dortmund and their first opposition of the tournament Newcastle. But The Rossoneri proved their CL quality last season, and have started the new Serie A season in fine form with three wins from three.
For Newcastle regardless of the result here, this match will be a moment to savour for the entire fanbase. After being absent from this prestigious tournament for two decades, the Magpies are back in the CL and are hoping to cause an upset by qualifying from a seriously tricky group. Expect some noise if you're anywhere in Milan today. The city will be host to a black and white Geordie party.
They’ll be leaning on the CL experience of new signing Sandro Tonali who moved from, you’ve guessed it, AC Milan over the summer. However, the Italian may actually miss his homecoming game due to a slight injury problem picked up while away on international duty.
Here's how they line up:
Milan: Maignan, Hernandez, Thiaw, Tomori, Calabria, Pobega, Krunic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao, Giroud, Chukwueze
Newcastle: Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Tonali, Guimaraes, Longstaff, Murphy, Isak, Gordon.
The eyes of the footballing world will be on this match. Not only is it the first game in this year’s Champions League tournament, but Group F is widely expected to be one of the most competitive in the competition's history. You won’t want to miss the AC Milan vs Newcastle live stream, and we’ve got all the details you need to watch from anywhere down below.
