Rafael Leao was once again AC Milan‘s standout performer on Sunday evening as they beat Sassuolo 3-0 at the Mapei Stadium to confirm themselves as Serie A champions for the first time since 2010/11.

During their title-winning season, Leao has been one of the most consistent players for Stefano Pioli’s side, and he delivered again on the final day to make sure of the Scudetto.


Maignan 6; Calabria 7, Kalulu 7.5, Tomori 7.5 (81′ Romagnoli n/r), Theo Hernandez 7; Tonali 7 (46′ Bennacer 6.5), Kessie 8, Saelemaekers 5.5 (81′ Florenzi n/r) , Krunic 7 (73′ Brahim 5.5), Leao 9; Giroud 8 (73′ Ibrahimovic 6).

Player of the Match – Rafael Leao

Milan needed someone to step up on Sunday and, just as was the case against Atalanta a week earlier, Rafael Leao was the man to do it. The Portuguese was unstoppable in the first half and he assisted each of AC Milan’s three goals, sending them on their way to a historic Serie A title win.
