Thomas Partey out of Atletico Champions League clash with Eindhoven

By Prince Dulzy

Ghana international Thomas Partey has been left of Diego Simeone’s squad to face PSV Eindhoven for the first round of the Champions League.

Diego Simeone convened the 19 players he wished to take to Eindhoven for their first group match, and the Ghanaian missed out for the fourth consecutive game. Also absent were Sime Vrsaljko, Alessio Cerci and Miguel Angel Moya.

Atletico Madrid will be hoping to maintain their form they exhibited against Celta Vigo last Saturday when they won emphatically 4-0 at the Estadio de Balaidos.

Atletico Squad:

Goalkeepers: Jan Oblak and Andre Moreira

Defenders: Juanfran, Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Filipe Luis

Midfielders: Yannick Carrasco, Koke, Saul Niguez, Tiago Mendes, Gabi, Nicolas Gaitan and Augusto Fernandez

Strikers: Kevin Gameiro, Fernando Torres, Angel Correa and Antoine Griezmann.
