Inter vs AC Milan: Rafael Leao has been declared fit to play in the Champions League semi-finals
The Rossoneri are two goals down ahead of Tuesday’s game after being clearly beaten by their rivals last week, with Leao out with a hamstring injury.
Pioli kept the Portuguese striker out of his squad for the weekend’s defeat in Spezia but will now bring him back after his successful return to training.
“Rafa is fine,” he confirmed to reporters.
“He completed almost the entire training session yesterday, today we hope he can do it.”
Milan also hope to welcome Rade Krunic and Junior Messias back after injury problems, Pioli added.
Given the deficit, the manager is hoping to instill a siege mentality among his side to pull off one of the best Champions League comebacks of all time.
“It’s not easy to prepare for tomorrow,” he continued. “But we have one important goal: to win the game and qualify for the final, which no one would ever predict.
“No one still believes that Milan can reach the final. I know we can play a great game.”
