Cristiano Ronaldo-style: Rafael Leao scored in AC Milan’s Serie A victory and celebrated as the star of Manchester United

After an infernal run and a powerful placed shot, Rafael Leao, rising star of Milan and the Portugal National Team, set out to celebrate in the best possible way, emulating Cristiano Ronaldo

Milan, the current Italian champion who is fighting to catch up with Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano’s Napoli, was in charge of fulfilling this objective, as they beat their rival, Fiorentina, on time, where we saw how Rafael Leao emulated Cristiano Ronaldo with his celebration, the one that became popular after the criticism made to ‘CR7’ where he was told that he was “dead”.

This was thanks to the fact that the Milanese team won a minute and a half into the game, when Rafael Leao took advantage of a rebound, a defensive mismatch and the space that the opposing defense allowed him to run, drive, stand against Terracciano and beat him.

That is why he celebrated his sixth goal this season in Serie A, which ventured a different scenario from the one that Milan later suffered on the pitch, matched by a very competitive rival -led by Sofiana Amrabat- before half an hour into the match, when Barak solved a mess in the area, with a half turn and a lucky shot.

However, this was not the winning goal, because on the verge of falling, the triumph imperceptible when the referee announced added time, Milan resurfaced from nowhere, with an own goal by Milenkovic that resolved their predicament against Fiorentina in the 91st minute to stay in the competition for the ‘Scudetto’, still away from Napoli, eight points behind, but still surviving, with all the courage he has after his gray encounter this Sunday.

The VAR validated the final 2-1 between the protests of Fiorentina, who claimed a foul in the jump between their goalkeeper, Terracciano, and Rebic, when they fought in the area for the center from the right wing of Aster Vranckx who did not even touch the goalkeeper nor the striker and that finally bounced off Milenkovic towards his own frame to save the ‘rossonero’ team from disappointment
