CM: Rebic expected to start for Milan vs. Fiorentina – overdue rest for Leao

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will face Fiorentina on Saturday evening and Ante Rebic, who has recovered from his injury struggles, is expected to play the game from start. A decision that makes a lot of sense. 

Due to the Croatian’s injury, which kept him out for a few weeks, Rafael Leao was forced to play several games from start in a row. It had a noticeable impact on the youngster and it’s thus very nice to have Rebic back for the alternation.

According to, the Rossoneri’s No.12 is expected to play from start against his former club on Saturday. He is well-rested and ready to make a difference after a positive display off the bench against Inter.

As said, it’s a decision that makes also because Leao took part in the international duty with Portugal. He could use the rest and he certainly deserves it. In the days leading up to the game, the Rebic report should only be further confirmed.
