Newcastle are back in Champions League action on Tuesday when they face a trip to Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund.
The Magpies lost to BVB at St James’ Park in their last European outing but will take solace in the fact they have already secured a win over group leaders PSG this season. Back Newcastle to beat Dortmund at 8/5 with bet365.
Newcastle injury woes
Newcastle secured a huge 1-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday despite having some key players missing.
Unfortunately for Newcastle, those injured players look set to once again miss out vs Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday:
“The majority (of injuries) are longer term, unfortunately for us, so that is the position we are in. We will go with a very similar squad,” Eddie Howe said recently.
“Botman’s unclear at the moment. We’re going day-by-day with that one currently. Isak we hope will be back after the international break.”
As well as Isak and Botman being out, Sandro Tonalli is banned, Harvey Barnes is a long-term absentee, Jacob Murphy dislocated his shoulder vs Arsenal and Dan Burn has a lower back problem.
On a more positive note, Callum Wilson - Newcastle’s joint-top scorer in 2023/24 - is fit to feature vs BVB. Back Wilson to score anytime on Tuesday at 7/4 with bet365.
