The Champions League group stage has begun, with 32 teams battling it out to make the knockout rounds.
Newcastle were always likely to be the headline draw, being in pot 4 and awaiting Europe's big hitters. On one hand, they've drawn about as tough a group as they could've done; on the other, what a way to return to Champions League football!
A goalless draw in Milan was a solid return to the European elite for the Magpies, as Eddie Howe's men survived an late onslaught from the Rossoneri to claim what could be prove to be a valuable point.
The remaining trips to Paris and Dortmund won't be easy, but what trips they are, and they'll be sure to give the visitors a proper Tyneside welcome at St James' Park.
Though the teams may look menacing on paper, Newcastle finished in the Premier League top four on merit last season and as such, they must feel confident of getting results against Milan and Dortmund, as well as making life very difficult at home to PSG.

Manchester United suffered a difficult start to their Champions League campaign, going down 4-3 against Bayern Munich, courtesy of a Harry Kane penalty and a calamitous error from goalkeeper Andre Onana.
Erik Ten Hag's men will hope to bounce back with a win in their next encounter when they host Turkish side Galatasaray, a game they are 4/9 to win.
No such problems for Arsenal as the Gunners blew away PSV 4-0 in their long awaited return to the Champions League. Mikel Arteta's side are now heavy favourites to progress from their group which contains French side Lens and Europa League champions Sevilla.
Celtic would have also felt quietly optimistic of reaching the knockout rounds after a generous draw. The Bhoys lost their opening fixture away at Feyenoord however, going down to nine men in the process, and now face difficult games against Atletico Madrid and Lazio in their bid to reach the latter stages.
