One big change from Saturday - Our predicted lineup for Borussia Dortmund away

One big change from Saturday - Our predicted lineup for Borussia Dortmund away

Newcastle United are back in Champions League action on Tuesday evening as they travel to Borussia Dortmund for a 5:45pm kick-off.

After beating Manchester United and Arsenal in the past week, Newcastle will be back in that invincible frame of mind. Add to that the fact that Harry Kane just taught Dortmund a footballing lesson at the weekend, the Magpies should be feeling confident of getting revenge on the Bundesliga side.

Newcastle continued their run of One IPG (that's Injuries Per Game) against Arsenal when Dan Burn fell awkwardly on his back. On that basis, we think that will be the only change to the team that beat the Gunners on Saturday.


Nick Pope - Obviously.


Tino Livramento - We've gone with Tino at right back. The lad has been phenomenal every time we've seen him play. He's earned this.

Jamaal Lascelles - The big skipper is doing a superb job covering for Sven Botman. It's not even a slight cause for concern seeing his name on the teamsheet these days.

Fabian Schar - Fabi is playing the best football of his career at the moment. And it took an hour before he went down with a head injury on Saturday, so that's improving too.

Kieran Trippier - With Burn's back issue we think he'll miss this one, or be dropped to the bench so Eddie Howe will unleash his inner Southgate and play our little skipper at left-back.

Sean Longstaff - Wor Sean, the man who captained the team to a historic win over Manchester United.

Bruno Guimaraes - Set for a rest on Saturday against Bournemouth due to picking up his fifth yellow card, he's got to start against Dortmund.

Joelinton - A powerhouse performance for him against Arsenal. He's back to his best and we will need him on Tuesday.


Miguel Almiron - Miggy and Tino linking up down the right is going to be interesting to see. It worked against Man United so why not against Dortmund?

Anthony Gordon - Undroppable. End of discussion.

Callum Wilson - He didn't have the best of games against Arsenal and that might just fire him up for Dortmund.

This team has everything we need to get revenge for their 1-0 win at St James' Park. We've lured them into a false sense of security and now it's time to demolish them.
