Unfortunately, Rafael Leao was absent from Milan’s semi-final first leg against arch-rivals Inter Milan due to an injured muscle, and his side suffered a 0-2 loss on home ground. The 23-year-old attacker will most likely be available for the second leg, though. For the first time since 2007, AC Milan needs his assistance to recover from the brink and compete in the UCL final.
