Marco Reus scored from the penalty spot to open Dortmund’s account in the 10th minute. His goal came four minutes after Olivier Giroud’s kick was saved at the other end. 

Samuel Chukwueze levelled the scoring for Milan before half-time, but 19-year-old Englishman Jamie Bynoe-Gittens restored the German side’s advantage in the second half before Karim Adeyemi scored to seal the win.

Dortmund sit three points ahead of Paris St-Germain at the top of Group F after the French side held Newcastle United to a draw.

Milan still have hope of qualifying if they beat Eddie Howe’s Newcastle but will rely on Dortmund to beat PSG on December 13.

Kylian Mbappe scored a late penalty to deny Newcastle an impressive win at Parc des Princes.

However, the Magpies are still in the fight to qualify for the next round. 

Aleksander Isak struck in the first half after Miguel Almiron’s effort had been pushed to the striker’s feet.

Newcastle then defended with everything they had to keep out PSG, and Nick Pope made a superb save from close range to deny Bradley Barcola and then Kylian Mbappe, who drove the rebound just wide.

But the visitors’ resolve was broken deep in stoppage time when the visitors were awarded a penalty when Tino Livramento was adjudged to have handled the ball, and Mbappe made no mistake from the spot.

The result means Newcastle are third in Group F, two points behind second-placed PSG.
