Diego Simeone names Thomas Partey in 19-man squad to face SD Huesca in La Liga tomorrow.
Atletico Madrid manager has released a list of 19 players for his sides 6th game of the season which is a home tie with newly promoted side SD Huesca at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday.
This game will provide Atletico Madrid a fair test before facing city rivals Real Madrid this weekend.
A defeat against Atletico Madrid would be SD Huesca’s 4th straight league defeat this season.
But one that player has struggled for a starting berth in Diego Simeone’s set up this season is Ghana international, Thomas Teye Partey. He has played 4 games , made 3 substitute appearances and just one start so far in the La Liga this season.
The 25 year old midfielder has mostly been overlooked for Spain international Rodrigo who in recent times is preferred to partner Koke in midfield.Rodrigo re- joined Atletico Madrid from Villareal in the summer for 20 million euros.
Partey would be eyeing a starting 11 spot against SD Huesca on Tuesday night.
