Huge injury blow for AC Milan as Leao limps off

AC Milan has been dealt a huge injury blow as one of their star players, Rafael Leao limped off the pitch just days before their Champions League showdown with Inter Milan. The Portuguese forward was injured in the 2-0 victory over Lazio on Saturday, sparking fears that he could miss the upcoming crucial game against their city rivals.

Leao, who has been in fine form for AC Milan this season, scoring three goals in six appearances, was reportedly in tears as he hobbled off the pitch. It is believed that the 23-year-old has suffered a muscle injury, but the extent of the damage is yet to be determined. The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for the Serie A club as they prepare to take on their fierce rivals in the highly anticipated Milan derby.

The Milan derby is always an intense affair, and given the circumstances, it promises to be a closely contested match. AC Milan will have to rely on others to step up and deliver, with players such as Alexis Saelemaekers, who has been impressive so far this season, and Ante Rebic, who has shown glimpses of his talent in recent games. The team will also need a strong defensive performance to keep Inter's attacking threats at bay.

In conclusion, Rafael Leao's injury is a huge blow for AC Milan, and they will have to work hard to find a way to cope without him. However, this could also be an opportunity for others to step up and show their worth. The Milan derby will be a test of character for the club, but they will have to give it their all to come out on top.
