Former top flight star Neil Lennon feels if Newcastle United can finish third in their Champions League group and qualify
for the Europa League that would be about right given where they are at present.

a battle to finish in the top two.READ MORE
They are currently placed at the bottom of the group, trailing leaders Dortmund by three points, second-placed Paris Saint-Germain
by two points and third-placed AC Milan by one point.
Lennon thinks that Newcastle should be looking at beating AC Milan at home on the final matchday and finishing third, to be involved in the Europa League in the new year, which he feels would be about right.
“If they could beat Milan at home and maybe make the Europa League, looking at the group, that would probably be par for the course”, Lennon said on the BBC.
This is their first season in the Champions League for a long, long time.
