Champions League team news and line-ups as Anthony Gordon on bench

Newcastle travel to Germany this evening to face Borussia Dortmund in a crucial Champions League contest that could decide the fate of both teams in Group F.

Currently the Magpies are level on points with Dortmund though they sit behind the Bundesliga side in the group following their defeat at St. James’ Park last time out. An away victory tonight will push Eddie Howe’s men into the top two of the table and leave them on the brink of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Paris Saint-Germain sit top of the table with six points, two more than Howe’s side, and take on AC Milan in tonight’s other group stage clash.

Howe will need to mastermind a victory against Dortmund without the services of some of his key players. Dan Burn, Matt Targett, and Jacob Murphy all have injuries while Sandro Tonali has been banned for 10-months.

Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle are level on points in Group F as they meet in Germany with the home side looking to build on their first win in this season’s Champions League.

Felix Nmecha’s 45th-minute goal proved pivotal in giving Dortmund three points at St James’ Park, ending the German side’s six-game losing run in England and inflicting Newcastle’s first defeat by Bundesliga opponents.

That was the sides’ first ever meeting, and only Newcastle’s sixth game against a German club in Uefa competition. Dortmund, by contrast, have faced English opponents 33 times.

Howe on Dan Burn’s injury

16:40 , Mike Jones

Newcastle left-back Dan Burn picked up a knock in the match against Arsenal and is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Eddie Howe spoke about Burn’s absence saying the defender will be a big miss for the team.

“Unfortunately, Dan will be out for some time.” said Howe, “It’s another long-term problem – a couple of months is sort of a speculative number for us. He landed on his spine. I think he has got a problem with the base of his spine.

“It is a huge blow. He has been gigantic for us since he signed, for a lot of different reasons as I’ve continually said.

“His character, his determination, his experience and versatility so it is not just one position we are losing. It’s something we have to roll with.”

Howe makes three changes

16:39 , Mike Jones

Eddie Howe swaps out three players from the starting XI that lined-up against Arsenal at the weekend. Dan Burn is injured so Tino Livramento comes in and Kieran Trippier will most likely switch to the left-back position.

Joe Willock and Lewis Hall both start with Miguel Almiron and Anthong Gordon on the bench.

Newcastle lose Dan Burn and Jacob Murphy in ‘worrying’ double injury blow

16:25 , Mike Jones

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe revealed his side’s hard-fought 1-0 win against Arsenal came at a price with Dan Burn and Jacob Murphy both sustaining injuries.

Anthony Gordon’s controversial second-half winner halted Arsenal’s unbeaten Premier League start to the season after a triple VAR check.

But Howe faces an anxious wait to learn the full extent of Burn’s back injury, while Murphy will have surgery after popping the same shoulder he dislocated last month and now faces three months out.

Howe on the previous match against Dortmund

Eddie Howe was asked for his thoughts on Newcastle last Champions League outing which saw them lose 1-0 to tonight’s opponents at St. James’ Park.

“I think it was two evenly balanced teams going against each other,” he said, “That game could have gone either way. I hope we can get the fine margins on our side this time.”

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe says he is not taking the club’s fantastic spell for granted as they prepare to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Howe was appointed in November 2021 with the team languishing in the Premier League relegation zone and two seasons in they are now contenders in the league and participating in the European top-flight.

“No,” he replied when asked if he could have imagined this when he arrived. “When we took over the vision was very short term. It was ‘can we stay in the Premier League?’

“To be at this point so soon after those moments is something I don’t take for granted.”

Good evening and welcome to The Independent’s coverage of tonight’s fascinating encounter between Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Eddie Howe’s men travel to Germany for their fourth match of the group stages knowing that a victory would put them in a strong position to reach the knockout rounds but a defeat is likely to see them drift away from the top two teams in the group.

Dortmund defeated the Magpies at St. James’ Park and will be confident of doing so again in front of their home supporters. Howe also has a juggling act on his hands as many of Newcastle’s key players are absent so this will be a tricky contest for the men in black and white.

We’ll have all the updates, team news and match action throughout the evening so stick around as we build-up to kick off…
