AC Milan could welcome back key forward Rafael Leao from injury for their Champions League semi-final second leg against Inter.

 

Milan boss Stefano Pioli has revealed that Leao – who missed last week’s 2-0 defeat to Inter in the first leg at San Siro – should be back from a muscle injury for Tuesday’s second leg. The Portuguese wide man has been a key figure for the Rossoneri this season, scoring 13 goals and laying on as many assists in all competitions.

 

: “He’s better,” said Piolo at a press conference on Monday on Leao. “[Rade] Krunic and [Junior] Messias are too. If everything goes as it should, they’ll be available for training later and for tomorrow.”

 

Goals from Edin Dzeko and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have put Inter firmly in control of the tie going into the second leg, which is a technically an away game for Milan, despite the fact they share San Siro with their city rivals. But Leao could be key to overturning the deficit
