Newcastle United will have another tough match in European competitions, in the UEFA Champions League in a duel corresponding to matchday 3 when they will host Borussia Dortmund of Germany this Wednesday.
Dortmund is in last place in Group F, which has been classified in the current campaign as the group of death or at least the most even with a pure team of a high level. The leader at the moment is Newcastle United, who have four points from two games played, where the recent 4-1 thrashing of Kylian Mbappé’s Paris Saint Germain stands out.
Apart from the round duel against the Parisian side, Newcastle drew 0-0 against AC Milan on matchday 1 of the Champions League group stage.
In the Premier League, Newcastle United are in sixth place at the moment with nine games played where they have scored a total of 16 points.
Dortmund, on the other hand, is in fourth place in the Bundesliga with 20 points from eight games and their performance in Europe has also left too many doubts. Edin Terzić’s men lost in their first match of the current Champions League season to Luis Enrique’s Paris Saint Germain 2-0, in addition, they drew 0-0 against AC Milan.
One of the players who has stood out the most with the English team this season has been by far the case of Miguel Almiron. In this edition of the Champions League, he has one goal in two games played. His particular performance against PSG was key to the Magpies’ triumph.
This duel will be special for 24-year-old Swedish striker Alexander Isak. The Swede had his time at Borussia Dortmund and today he will face them as one of Newcastle’s top scorers. The footballer, who is also part of the Swedish national team, has six goals in eight Premier League games. In the Champions League, he has yet to score.
