Newcastle United didn't have the best night of the season. Eddie Hove's side failed to win against BVB Dortmund on their visit to Germany. The atmosphere at Signal Iduna Park was perfect for the home team to take the victory in this group stage of the UEFA Champions League group of death. Undoubtedly, a great match where the Germans sought victory at all costs.

With that said, the outlook for Newcastle United was positive. The Megpies were coming off important wins against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup and Arsenal in the Premier League just this weekend. It is worth mentioning that the St James Park team took the lead from the Gunners. Clearly, it was not a good weekend for the so-called favorites to take the title.

One of the things that has stood out about Newcastle this season has been the suspension of Sandro Tonali for problems with illegal betting. Given this, everything seems to indicate that it has not been a problem for the team to achieve positive results. It is worth mentioning that the team is in 6th place in the English league and hopes to continue achieving relevant things in the remainder of the season

However, the pressure to play in the UEFA Champions League is always greater. Despite looking for victory at all costs, Newcastle United conceded an early goal from the first minutes. The English team held the result until the final minutes until a goal by Julian Brandt less than 15 minutes from the end ended all the team's hopes. With this result, things get complicated in the group

What Newcastle United need to qualify

With today's defeat, mathematically, Newcastle United still have a chance of qualifying. It is worth mentioning that any loss of the first two places and a victory of the team in the next match, can put the team at the next round. At the moment, it all depends on the other results.
