We’re now a week away from the Champions League clash between Newcastle United and AC Milan, and even though the two clubs are on the bottom of Group F, there’s still a lot to fight for.

Both sides hope Paris Saint Germain lose to Borussia Dortmund, giving them a chance to get the second place for the knock-out stage, or at least hold the third spot and go to the Europa League.

Italian outlet Sport Mediaset today brings some fresh news on Milan’s squad, and claims the Rossoneri may have some reinforcements ahead of the match against Newcastle.

It’s said Rafael Leao and Simon Kjaer are both closer to returning, and even though they are not expected to play in Serie A at the weekend, it’s ‘probable’ they’ll be able to face the Magpies.

The report highlights how important those two comebacks will be, and adds the ‘good news’ that Marco Sportiello is also back in training.

That’s a boost for Milan, who need to beat Newcastle to guarantee that they’ll continue playing in Europe competitions. The first game between Magpies and Rossoneri ended 0-0 at the San Siro.
