Thomas Partey features as Atletico Madrid makes light work of Osasuna

Published on: 17 June 2020

Ghanaian international Thomas Partey featured for Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night as they cruised past Osasuna with an emphatic 5-0 win in the Spanish La Liga.

After failing to grab all 3 points last weekend when the 2019/2020 league season restarted, Diego Simeone's men finally got the job done today and in fine fashion as well.

The matchday 27 clash between the two teams played at the Estadio El Sadar saw Joao Felix breaking the deadlock after 29 minutes of play when he proved clinical in front of the goal.

Despite some end to end action for the remaining minutes of the half, neither side could get on the scoresheet as the first half ended 1-0 in favour of the away team.

Atletico Madrid returned from the break and played with some swagger as they scored four times. Joao Felix found the back of the net on the 56th minute to complete his brace before making way for Thomas Partey on the 69th minute.

Later on, a goal each from Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Morata, and Yannick Carrasco added to the woes of Osasuna as they lost 5-0 at the end of the 90 minutes.

For the minutes he played, Thomas Partey looked in good form with his precise passing and good reading of the game to intercept passes.

The hardworking midfielder remains a key member of the Atletico Madrid team but looks set to switch to the English Premier League at the end of the season to play for Arsenal.
