CorSport: Milan to rely heavily on duo in must-win game against Sampdoria

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are hoping to get back to winning ways this evening, taking on Sampdoria at San Siro. The truth is that the Rossoneri need to claim all three points in order o keep their Champions League pursuit alive. 

Milan are currently four points being fourth-placed Lazio in the standings, and with just three games remaining everything could be decided this weekend. Should Milan fail to win, then Lazio could seal the deal against Udinese tomorrow.

As highlighted by today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan will rely on their stars up front, Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud. The Rossoneri need to find the back of the net again and those two will be crucial in that mission.

Leao has the ability to create something out of nothing, as we saw when he nearly scored against Inter, and Giroud has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Tonight, both will have to lead the line for Milan.
