60’ - TEN changes for NUFC

GOOOOOAAAAALLLL! Joe Willock

Shelvey finds Willock, who this time makes no mistake with his left. It had been coming...

Reverse ball by ASM as he cut in from the left played in Joe Willock and his toe poke was into the chest of the Munich keeper. Should have scored.

It’s been better from NUFC so far this half.

We’re under way again - a change & a chance!

Just the one change has been made by Eddie Howe after the break with Sven Botman coming on for the yellow-carded Jamaal Lascelles.

Interestingly, he comes on as a right-sided central defender alongside fellow left-footer Dan Burn.

At the other end, Elliot Anderson carved open a fantastic opportunity for Callum Wilson, but the striker could only fire over when free in the area.

HT: 0-0: Jordan Cronin’s thoughts on the first 45

A typical pre-season friendly. Very stop-start. Lacking any kind of rhythm. 1860 Munich look sharper whereas Newcastle look like a team playing one of their first meaningful games.

JORDAN CRONIN

9’ - So close to an 1860 opener

Matt Targett has to be at his best to deny Erik Tallig the opener as he turns behind a dangerous cross with the striker lurking. And from the resulting corner Phillipp Steinhart nods inches wide of Nick Pope’s United post.

A let off for NUFC.

Early chance for Newcastle United

Some smart work by Allan Saint-Maximin down the left finds the lively Elliot Anderson, who tries to pick out Joe Willock only for Phillipp Steinhart to clear with the goal gaping.
