Milan beat Dortmund 3-1 to hold onto some hopes to remain in the UCL this season. Their goal difference is weak but they face Newcastle next gameweek, a win in that match means that they will at least qualify for Europa League.

Newcastle were hard done by in Paris, as a referee error led to them conceding a penalty in the 90+6 minute. UEFA, Europe’s footballing governing body, apologized for the referee mistake but it gave no advantage to Newcastle as they aren’t guaranteed a spot in the next stage of UCL.

Newcastle were leading in Paris by 1-0, before Newcastle defender Tino Livramento’s actions were deemed to be hand-ball by VAR (Video Assistant Referee), which is controlled by a referee. PSG striker Kylian Mbappe converted the penalty and drew the match 1-1.

Dortmund and PSG play each other in the next UCL gameweek.
