‘Absolutely crazy’: Andy Carroll shares the change he thinks will happen to Newcastle in the Champions League

Andy Carroll, a former Newcastle United striker, has issued a warning to Paris Saint-Germain ahead of tonight’s Champions League meeting at St James’ Park.

Newcastle will play their first Champions League home game since 2003 on this memorable night on Tyneside.

It will be a great moment, and the Magpies will face the best player on the field in Kylian Mbappe.


The stage is set for a fantastic game of football, and Newcastle will enter the game confident that they can play at the Champions League level. They accomplished it against AC Milan, eking out a point at the San Siro.


Newcastle, on the other hand, was apprehensive in Italy and had to do a lot of defending to avoid conceding. They were able to cling on and take a point into tonight’s encounter against PSG.
Carroll anticipates a much more expansive performance from Eddie Howe’s side in the upcoming match against PSG.

Andy Carroll believes Newcastle can win on a ‘really insane’ night.

Carroll speaks to L’Equipe ahead of his match against PSG. He has outlined why he believes Newcastle can beat Luis Enrique’s side.

“Yes, they were a little tense for the return to the Champions League against Milan but will free themselves at St James’ Park, where the atmosphere will be absolutely crazy,” he stated.

“I’m still in contact with players and members of the staff, I will send them messages of encouragement before the meeting.”


Newcastle is under less strain against PSG.

Hopefully, Carroll is correct, and Newcastle is less uptight tonight. That should be the case, as they will be supported by a sold-out St James’ Park, which has been anticipating this moment for quite some time.


Howe’s team was still finding their feet in the Champions League against AC Milan, and they were understandably intimidated by the situation.


However, this should not happen against PSG. Newcastle are at home and will be confident that they can win despite the caliber of the opposition.

And if they aren’t confident right now, they will be until Carroll sends them a message before kickoff!
