Newcastle United must beat AC Milan tonight at St James' Park to qualify for the final 16.

Bruno Guimaraes has sent a motivating message to Newcastle United fans ahead of the club's make-or-break match against AC Milan.

Tonight, the Magpies take on the Italians in their final Champions League group stage game (8pm kick-off.) United must win if they want to extend their tournament run and are reliant on PSG losing to Dortmund, who have already qualified, to get to the last 16.

Support for Newcastle has already been rampant, with Wor Flags reminding match-going fans to bring their scarves and Eddie Howe spurring them on.

In the pre-match press conference, Newcastle's head coach said: "They have been there for us this season, we are going to need every voice, every person can make a difference for us. We need to create an atmosphere, the supporters have never let us down at home. They have really driven us on, in tight games, they have really given us the ability to carry on. We are going to need that again."

And now Bruno Guimaraes has spoken directly to fans to help them urge United on. Taking to social media, the Brazilian said: "We have a dream!! Let's do it together! Your support will be crucial for us."

The midfielder's rallying cry will surely mobilise fans to create the best atmosphere St James' Park has ever seen.

If United win, and PSG beat Dortmund, they will finish third in the group and drop into the Europa League. If Newcastle draw with Milan, they will still finish third. If Milan win, European football is over for Newcastle this season.
