Recover Lemar. It is the goal of Atletico's coaching staff in this section of the season. Recover and Trust the French soccer player who started against Osasuna last Saturday and it was caught by rojiblanca fans. Lemar started before the Navarrese team, tried during the game, but things didn't end. Lemar gave João Félix great assistance, which the Portuguese could not profit from, an action applauded by Simeone. Within the Madrid team, it is believed that Lemar can still give Atletico much joy, despite knowing that the Frenchman is not going through his best moment. Neither game nor humor. And Simeone and his coaching team work in this double direction. Lemar has doubts and the coach's challenge is to convince him that in the end he will triumph in red and white. It does not seem like a simple task, but this is where Atletico coaches are.
Berta and Simeone understand that not many players in the squad have the quality of the French midfielder. And Atletico can't afford to be without him. Plus when Vitolo doesn't finish booting either. The canary plays three games in a row and gets hurt, so he doesn't have the regularity that he and the team need. Vitolo was injured against Real Madrid on September 28 and his license was extended for 22 days. Clashes against Lokomotiv, Valladolid and Valencia were lost. He was injured again against Villarreal and lost the games against Lokomotiv, Champions and the last against Osasuna. He will return after the break so Simeone had to go without the canary in several games. Thus, Lemar's contest seems basic, as only he and Correa remain upright players who can unbalance a match (counting Morata and João Félix as fixed holders).
Lemar has played 20 of the 23 games Atlético have played so far. He played 14 of the championship and six of the Champions. He has not scored any goals or assisted. Something weird about a player of his quality. With a contract in force until June 2023, his name is one that comes to light when he talks about the future and the possibility of Atletico taking a player from his team to sign a reinforcement in the bells. Lemar cost 70 million for 80% of the pass and at the moment the price of the player does not even reach the amount paid by the Wanda Metropolitano entity.
At the club, they understand that the whistles of one part of the booth do not help the player to give their best either. Looking at the game against Betis Lemar, he has another chance to show his worth. Playing away from home may even be good for him.
