Despite being hailed as the “new Kaka,” it will not be easy for Lucas Piazon to break into Roberto Di Matteo’s Chelsea first team.
If another Brazilian in Oscar signs, the competition for places for Chelsea to appear in an attacking midfield spot will be immense.
Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Ramires, Kevin De Bruyne and Marko Marin are all hugely talented players that block Lucas Piazon’s route to Chelsea’s first choice side.
So, it was an opportunistic time for Piazon to score for Chelsea and take the majority of the attention as the Blues battled back for a draw with PSG in New York on Sunday night.
He was a second half substitute and showed some tidy touches before combining well with Ramires to slot in the equaliser with nine minutes remaining.
There was still time for the Chelsea number 46 to pick up some decent positions and the Brazil starlet will be hopeful of some more playing time on the US tour.
