The best chance of the first half fell to Milan’s Rafael Leao, who hit the post with a powerful shot from outside the box. Newcastle had a good chance in the second half when Allan Saint-Maximin raced through on goal, but his shot was saved by Milan goalkeeper Ciprian Tătărușanu.

The draw leaves both teams on one point after their first group game.
