Last minute of the Champions League match between Newcastle – Borussia Dortmund, live:
Goodnight! Second stop of the Champions League in St.James Park after the victory of Las Urracas against the PSG by Luis Enrique. Eddie Howe’s men receive the visit of Borussia Dortmund with four points and with the possibility of putting a foot and a half in the next phase if they manage to add three points. For their part, Dortmund have only managed to scratch one point from their match against Milan. Being able to add and become strong in their own stadium in the second part of the group stage will be key.
“It’s another true high-level test. This group was always going to be like this, going from AC Milan, to Paris and Dortmund. It’s great to be involved in it, but as we said at the beginning of the group, we knew it would be a very tough test for us, now it’s a key period,” analyzed the Newcastle coach.
“We can expect a warm welcome. We have to show our energy on the pitch and make the most of this opportunity. You can see the strength of the group and Newcastle are the first. We have to play a good game,” commented the Dortmund coach, Edin Terzic.
The Germans are unbeaten in their last five competitive matches, including four Bundesliga wins against Wolfsburg, Hoffenheim, Union Berlin and Werder Bremen, as well as a goalless draw at home against Milan in this competition. He Newcastle has won four of its five European meetings with German rivals, the last against Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA 2006-2007.
