Leão likely to return for AC Milan in 2nd leg of Champions League semifinals
MILAN (AP) — AC Milan will likely have its top player back for the second leg of the Champions League semifinals on Tuesday.
Winger Rafael Leão was out with a right thigh problem when Milan lost the opening leg 2-0 to city rival Inter Milan last week.
“If today’s training goes OK, Leão will start,” Milan coach Stefano Pioli said Monday.
Leão was named Serie A’s most valuable player when Milan won the Italian league last year. He was also instrumental when Milan eliminated Napoli in the quarterfinals.
