Tuttosport: Remarkable stat shows how much Leao’s absence weighs on Milan

By Isak Möller -

Rafael Leao will miss out on the big game between AC Milan and Napoli this evening due to a suspension. It’s a big blow for the Rossoneri if you consider how well the Portuguese winger has done as of late. 

Just a few days ago, in the mid-week clash against Dinamo Zagreb, Leao bagged an assist and also won a penalty. His importance is undeniable and that’s why it will be interesting to see Stefano Pioli’s solution for tonight.

As highlighted by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Leao is responsible for having created 75% of Milan’s chances thus far. It’s a significant figure and Napoli are probably delighted that he won’t be on the pitch this evening.

Alexis Saelemaekers is expected to start on the left instead and while it’s not his natural position, he has been in very good form lately. Hopefully, he can build on the positive run and help Milan claim three huge points.
