Partey on target in Atletico UCL draw

Partey scored in the 56th minute

Black Stars midfielder Thomas Teye Partey scored a vital equalizer for his Atletico Madrid side in their 1-1 draw with FK Qarabag at home in the Uefa Champions League.

The Azerbaijani champions took the lead in the 40th minute through Michel, who headed in a corner from Wilde-Donald Guerrier.

It took 11 minutes in the second half for Partey’s right-footed shot to cancel the visitors’ lead.

He connected to a pass from marksman Antoine Griezmann.

The two sides had to play with 10 men each at the Wanda Metropolitano after Stefan Savic and Medina da Silva were given their marching orders.

Given Chelsea’s 0-3 loss to AS Roma in Group C on Tuesday, Atletico risk going out at the group stage of the Champions League for the first time in years.

The Italians lead with eight points followed by the English on seven points while the Spaniards are on three points.

FK Qarabag have only two points from the first four games.
