Atalanta and Athletic Bilbao wins in pictures

The Magpies played host to two continental opponents in two days over the weekend - and won both matches to sign off their pre-season preparations on an encouraging note.

On Friday night, Serie A side Atalanta visited St. James' Park, with the Magpies coming out on top thanks to a first-half penalty from Chris Wood after Elliot Anderson was brought down.

Then less than 24 hours later, Eddie Howe named a totally different starting XI to take on La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao - with United wearing their new navy blue change kit for the first time - and Newcastle won 2-1 with Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin on target.

Across the two games, 87,452 supporters were inside the stadium, while there were senior debuts for Lucas De Bolle, Dylan Stephenson and Santiago Munõz. The Magpies look in good shape ahead of next weekend's Premier League opener against Nottingham Forest, and Serena Taylor brought nufc.co.uk this gallery from Gallowgate.
