Lemar, without pain or glory

Simeone rotated the team in the match against Valladolid and only four players repeated the last game. Cholo gave minutes to other footballers and one of them was Lemar, who has been losing prominence in Atlético as the season has progressed. Lemar went unnoticed in the match and was changed in the 56th minute by Carrasco. It gives the feeling that the Belgian is eating ground to the French, who could be playing his last campaign at the Madrid club.

Lemar played 27 minutes in the match against Athletic, did not play against Osasuna and was a starter and did not arrive at the meeting time against Valladolid. He is a footballer who has not become decisive, despite his class. He tried against Valladolid but practically nothing came out. He lost 15 balls and gave 20 good passes. His best contribution was a shot from outside the area that was about to be a goal. He failed the controls and did not attempt to haggle. One more game in which it was not decisive.

Athletic Shield / Flag

Lemar has played 26 games of official competition (19 in LaLiga and seven in Champions). Not have scored no goals and only gave one assist. In total he has played 1,119 minutes. Very little baggage for a player of his category. With a contract until 2023, its market value has down to 24 million euros, very far from the 70 that Atlético paid for him.

The arrival of Carrasco and the versatility of Correa, plus the irruption of Marcos Llorente, both in attack and in the center of the field, they subtract minutes and prominence. His future seems complicated, although Atlético is not willing to give him away or let him out without a significant amount of money. In the Premier he has a good sign. Eight league matches and the Champions League remain. Lemar plays it in these games. Now that Simeone can count on all his players in attack it seems that Lemar He has missed another train.
