Rafael Leao was forced off early during last night’s win against Torino after the second penalty incident, but his condition is nothing to be worried about.
It was 20 minutes into the second half when Leao went on one of his typical surging runs into the box and beat Perr Schuurs to the byline, crossing the ball but getting taken out in the process which led to a penalty after VAR review.
Giroud then tucked the spot kick away, but there was some apprehension after Leao’s exit from the field because Stefano Pioli forced to make a substitution after the nasty tackle, albeit one that was more due to bad timing than malice.
According to MilanNews, there is nothing to worry about regarding the Portuguese winger because he just sustained a painful stomp rather than anything more damaging that might keep him on the sidelines.
It is good news given that the next two matches on the schedule are Roma and Inter away.
