Frustrated AC Milan can't find a way past Newcastle
AC Milan were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United on Tuesday despite dominating much of the opening Champions League Group F contest.
The Rossoneri, who were coming off a humiliating 5-1 defeat to local rivals Inter over the weekend, ended the contest with eight shots on target compared to Newcastle's one.
However, wasteful finishing and several Nick Pope saves meant that both teams kicked off their Champions League campaign with a draw, albeit a disappointing one for the Italian side.
Newcastle United began the first-half looking the team more impacted by the scope of the occasion, misplacing passes and allowing Milan a lot of time on the ball.

The Italians, however, were unable to take full advantage of this, only creating a number of half-chances for themselves.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek was the pick of the Rossoneri players in the first-half, driving straight at the heart of Newcastle's defense on multiple occasions, but Milan just couldn't find the final pass.
