Calcio Mercato are reporting that AC Milan's new signing Rafael Leao is out injured and will miss the upcoming encounter with AS Roma as a result. He picked up a muscular strain during the 2-2 draw with Lecce and was substituted off for Piatek at the 67th minute.

The Portugal international will likely miss the upcoming crunch tie in Rome allowing space for Poland's Piatek back into the starting line up after he found the net for the third time this season on Sunday.
