Clément Lenglet could be at the limit of his physique after having played every minute during the season. In a week with so many games, the clash against Getafe could be a good time to give the Frenchman a rest
Clément Lenglet has turned into one of the intocables of Ernesto Valverde. The central French did with the place to title the past season when Samuel Umtiti lesionó. The ex of the Olympique of Lyon happened so much time out of the terrains of game that his compatriot finish him eating the toast. From the past course, for the 'Txingurri' no longer there is doubt, Clément is indisputable headline in the centre of the saga.
This new role has kept this campaign and, for the moment, the Frenchman has not rested neither an alone minute. His mate in the centre of the defence, Gerard Hammered, neither has ausentado in any of the seven meetings that has played the Barça. But the case of the ex sevillista goes further, since it also attended with France to the stop of selections and played the 90 minutes in the two crashes that contested the champion of the world.
In total, without explaining the pre-season, from 16 August the defender has played seven complete parties with the Barça and other two with France. They are 810 minutes in less than a month and half without having an alone second of rest. Although Lenglet has showed that physically it holds what throw him, in the month of September is dangerous that any footballer have a load of minutes as his.
The physicist of the defender could be to the limit and this is something that the Barça can not allow with Umtiti lesionado. The defender was to title the past weekend in Granada, also went it in front of the Villarreal the Tuesday and would add his third titularity in seven days if it finish playing against the Getafe. Taking into account that the Wednesday there is split against the Inter and next Sunday in front of the Seville, perhaps the best option to give him rest would be this Saturday in front of the azulones.
The Madrilenian team is a group aguerrido, hard and dangerous, but probably was the most accessible of the next commitments culés. It is necessary to have this very in account, since Todibo would be the attendant to play by Lenglet. The French youngster is still very green and does not enjoy of the confidence of Valverde. This is the reason by which would be preferable to put him against the Getafe that against Inter or Seville, that are rival even more complicated.
The stop of selections looms to Lenglet
If the trainer extremeño decides to not to give him rest to Lenglet this Saturday, the ex of the Seville will not rest with almost total security until after the stop of international selections. When going back, the Barcelona plays against the Eibar, in Ipurua, on 19 October. It expects that for then, the Frenchman have not played everything with France as in the first. It was as it was, in front of the armeros could be the first crash in which have a break with the Barça this course.
