Newcastle enjoyed a brief lead in their Champions League clash with AC Milan on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough in the end.

Needing a victory to keep their hopes of advancing out of Group F alive, Joelinton gave the hosts a deserved advantage with a powerful shot into the top corner of Milan's net.

But the evening soured for the hosts, as Newcastle's lead evaporated in the second half after Christian Pulisic and Samuel Chukwueze scored for Milan, dooming the Magpies to last place in Group F.

Milan's triumph, however, was only good enough to earn the Italian club a spot in the Europa League.

Paris Saint-Germain joined Group F winners Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last 16 after escaping Germany with a crucial 1-1 draw.
