Leao a doubt for Champions League Derby

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Rafael Leao is a major doubt for Milan’s midweek Champions League match against Inter. The EuroDerby is set to take place on Wednesday but there have been doubts over the fitness of the Portuguese winger, who was substituted at the weekend after just 10 minutes of the Rossoneri’s 2-0 win against Lazio.

Tests confirmed that Leao suffered an elongation of the right abductor and would be monitored on a day-by-day basis ahead of the Champions League semi-final match.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that the 23-year-old is a major doubt for the game and a decision on whether to include him could be taken just hours before the game.

Il Corriere dello Sera write that it’s more likely that Leao misses the game altogether as Milan would not want to put him at risk of a more serious injury, suggesting they may wait until the second-leg before including him.
