Newcastle suffered a home Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund at St James’ Park, in a result that blew Group F wide open.

After an exhilarating opening spell where Anthony Gordon forced visiting goalkeeper Gregor Kobel into two saves, Dortmund took a deserved lead when Felix Nmecha guided a precise finish into the corner on the counter-attack.

Newcastle struggled to create chances after half-time, with Callum Wilson wasting the best of them with a shot that was straight at goalkeeper Kobel.

Wilson then struck the bar with a late header before Gordon’s deflected effort also hit the bar in stoppage time - but Eddie Howe’s side were unable to find an equaliser.

The defeat leaves Newcastle in third place in Group F behind Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund, who will host the Premier League side in the return fixture in two weeks’ time.

Full-time! Newcastle 0-1 Borussia Dortmund

90+4 mins: Newcastle strike the woodwork again, right at the end of the match but it’s not enough to get themselves an equaliser.

They’ve suffered their first defeat in the Champions League this season on a wet and rainy net at St. James’ Park as Borussia Dortmund inflicted a 1-0 loss on Eddie Howe’s side.

An opening 15 minutes of blistering action saw Nick Pope called into action on multiple occasions including a double save to deny Donyell Malen and Niclas Fullkrug. At the other end of the pitch Anthony Gordon provided the biggest threat for the hosts but Gregor Kobel was steadfast between the sticks.

Felix Nmecha broke the deadlock just before the half-time break, guiding home a lovely finish from inside the area to complete a flowing move from the visitors.

Newcastle had to manage a couple of injuries, one to Alexander Isak and one to Jacob Murphy as they increased the tempo in the second half. Dortmund where disciplined and despite the Magpies twice hitting the woodwork they managed to hold out for the win.
