Lemar seeks to recover its place in the Simeone scheme

The Frenchman started the season as a starter, but after an injury that took him out two games he has had little participation against Madrid and Lokomotiv.


Thomas Lemar wants to be a fixture again in Simeone's schemes, although he won't have it easy. The offensive trident formed by João Félix, Morata and Diego Costa rendered at a high level in Moscow against Lokomotiv and will be present again in Zorrilla. If the three players with the most goal of the team are fit it seems that they will be the game for Cholo. In addition, the central trio that Thomas has assembled, in a great state of form, Koke and Saul, who has played every minute of the season, is also immovable.

Despite that, Lemar does not give up. At the beginning of the course he was the undisputed holder and before Getafe, Leganés, Eibar, Real Sociedad and Juventus he was part of the eleven, although none of the games ended. A trauma left him out in duels against Celta and Mallorca and since then he has had a limited participation. A total of 29 minutes in the derby against Real Madrid and 13 in Moscow against Lokomotiv, where he was close to scoring the third goal of the game.

The French must step forward with respect to the performance offered last season, their year of arrival at the club for 70 million from Monaco. Lemar became the most expensive signing in the history of Atlético, a figure that João Félix has pulverized this summer (127.2), but despite the opportunities offered by Simeone, it did not end. The 23-year-old left exciting games, such as in the European Super Cup against Real Madrid or in the League against Getafe and Valencia, but the vast majority of games went completely unnoticed.

Improvement in summer

During the preseason a better Lemar has been seen. A more participatory player in a position that looks more in the middle and with greater relevance in the last pass. His assistance to João Félix in the preseason game against Juventus was his culminating work. But now you must work and increase the benefits to continue having opportunities. Vitolo, although injured, has grown a lot and earned his place.

The competition is reproduced above, since Correa is also a player of Simeone's taste. In order for Lemar to play, the player who already appeared during the preseason will have to be seen. At the moment he still has the confidence of Deschamps in the national team, where he was proclaimed world champion in the summer of 2018. Simeone awaits him and in his hand he is completing that evolution that allows him to recover his space in the Cholo's onces. There is faith in a Lemar that has always given the impression of failing to complete the sparkles of a quality that it has shown since Monaco.
