Terrible afternoon for Atlético Madrid. Badly beaten on the pitch of FC Valence (0-3) this Saturday, the Colchoneros also lost Thomas Lemar to injury. The French world champion in 2018 was evacuated on a stretcher just before half-time and was suffering from an Achilles tendon.
“Thomas Lemar was evacuated on a stretcher after falling into a bad position during the match. The medical services, after initial examination, fear a serious injury to the Achilles tendon. Waiting for tests to confirm a definitive diagnosis,” the Madrid club indicated on its social networks.
The former Monegasque risks missing several months of competition while Atlético will return to the Champions League this Tuesday (9 p.m.), at Lazio Rome.
