A match where he took centre stage, thus continuing his excellent start to 2022. Rafael Leão came on and made a decisive impact in an AC Milan v Genoa showdown that, up to that point, had been a tight affair. It was a big performance from the Portuguese man, who found the net with a splendid goal and was a real live wire down the left flank. The Rossoneri fans very much appreciated his efforts, so much so that they voted him as the man of the match with a vote share of 71%.
Let’s take a look at Rafa’s match numbers. Despite the Rossoneri No.17 only entering the fray in the 62nd minute, no AC Milan player did better in terms of shots on target (two), blocked efforts (two) and saved attempts (one). He also constantly looked to supply his teammates, as highlighted by the number of crosses he sent in (three) and chances he created (also three). A complete performance from a player who is increasingly becoming a point of reference for Coach Pioli. Well done, Rafa, and keep it up!
