What are the best bets?

Anthony Gordon
Anthony Gordon's contests the decision to book him

ANTHONY GORDON picked up his fourth booking of the season in stoppage time against Brentford at the weekend. A feat made even more impressive as he has only started five games.

Gordon has been 3/1 TO BE SHOWN A CARD the last two weekends, for Newcastle’s trip to Milan he has drifted to 7/2 which is simply too large to turn down.

The Magpies winger has picked up more cards in his career (19) then he has scored or assisted goals (17), and he looks primed to add another to his collection at the San Siro.

Gordon’s track record is great, the occasion is massive and the opposition are Italian which always helps but the sweetener is the official.

Spaniard José María Sánchez Martínez takes charge of this clash and he has dished out 37 yellows and a red card in seven appearances this season.

On the continent, he has brandished eight cards in three Champions League appearances and 22 in two international games.

BuildABet @ 22/1

Sandro Tonali in action for Newcastle

Sandro Tonali returns to Milan for the first time since leaving the club he claimed he wanted to capitain.

The midfielder is not notorious for his offensive output, he is however one of the few Newcastle players with experience in this competition.

With the added motivation of returning to his former employers, Tonali could rack up the shots.

Score prediction: Mian 1-1 Newcastle (Sky Bet odds: 11/2)
