Leão likely to return for AC Milan in 2nd leg of Champions League semifinals

MILAN (AP) — AC Milan will likely have its top player back for the second leg of the Champions League semifinals. Winger Rafael Leão was out with a right thigh problem when Milan lost the opening leg 2-0 to city rival Inter Milan last week. Milan coach Stefano Pioli says that “if today’s training goes OK” then  “Leão will start.” Leão was named Serie A’s most valuable player when Milan won the Italian league last year. He was also instrumental when Milan eliminated Napoli in the quarterfinals.
