A month and a half later, however, his participation in the team is not determining. The Belgian has played, for the moment, 155 minutes spread over five games, 29% of the minutes. In none has it been a starter. When he played the most was against Espanyol, on March 1, 56 minutes. At least the 13 ‘in Mestalla.
