Revealed: Will Rafael Leão be fit for the second-leg vs Inter Milan?

AC Milan will hope to have Rafael Leão back for tonight’s Champions League semi-final...

AC Milan have a mountain to climb in the second-leg as they must overcome a 2-0 deficit away at the San Siro to Inter.

Milan were dealt a massive blow for the first-leg last week as they were without star forward Rafael Leão.

Stefano Pioli will be hoping that the 24-year-old will be back for tonight’s massive game at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Piolo on Leão: “He’s better”

Piolo has revealed that Leão was expected back in training on Monday and again this morning.

The manager was hopeful that if all goes to plan, the Portugese star should be fit to play.

Milan looked toothless in the first-leg with Olivier Giroud being left isolated up top.

Speaking about Leão possibly being back, Piolo said: “He’s better.

“(Rade) Krunic and (Junior) Messias are too. If everything goes as it should, they’ll be available for training later and for tomorrow.”
