Huge opportunity emerges for Leao as Rebic could miss Atalanta clash

By Isak Möller -

Ante Rebic could miss the game between Milan and Atalanta tomorrow due to an injury, which kept him from taking part in the full training session this morning. In other words, it’s a big chance for Rafael Leao. 

The Portuguese youngster came off the bench against Cagliari and impressed as he had a positive impact on the game. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite enough to claim all three points but Milan will get another chance tomorrow.

As was confirmed by Stefano Pioli during the press conference today, which you can read here, Rebic is at risk of missing out. Everything will be decided tomorrow but it seems Leao will be given the responsibility from start.

Of course, Pioli also has Mario Mandzukic at his disposal but the No.9 hasn’t been able to impress since he arrived back in January. Leao will be able to prove all the doubters wrong with a good performance tomorrow, but it won’t be easy.

    If leao start tomorrow then milan has no chance to score. Leao will be a total 0 in front and play like a tired veteran as always. No chance vs defenders. A quiet evening for atalanta defence. Just sell him and get even 20 mil. Dont expect more mil from his sale

    Not much hope on him…No desire ..plays very lazy..no desire to fight.. atleast ante use to bring that desire..but having Leao and Hakan on the top is like Dead men walking..No will to fight…I wish they prove me wrong

    Why not play mandzukic up front as target man.

    His build, experience and technical ability might just be the turning point tomorrow.

    I hope Leao proves me wrong 🥴

    Where is Hauge? I even prefer Emil Roback to this clown.

    All that matters tomorrow is goal without scoring goals milan can’t get the maximum need 3 points
    Leão is never good as a striker but from the flanks which our coach and management refused to see during the transfer window and it has cost us dearly
    Hauge would have provided much needed support than Pioli preferred defensive midfielder of Meïté and co
    All our players need is to be determined and give the of themselves
