Partey Scores As Atletico Madrid Steal Draw At Valencia On Val’s Day

Ghanaian International Thomas Teye Partey found the back of the net as Atletico Madrid were held to a two-all draw with Valencia at the Estadio Mestalla on Friday night.

Midfield duo Marcos Llorente and Ghana’s Thomas Partey’s strikes were nullified by Gabriel Paulista and Geoffrey Kondogbia in a four-goal thriller in the Spanish LaLiga.

It was the Rojiblancos who shot to the lead when Angel Correa’s effort was prodded home by Marcos Llorente for the first goal after quarter of an hour.

With five minutes to recess, former Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista was on hand to level matters.

But Thomas Partey made sure the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano-side went into the break with the lead when he scored his team’s first goal from outside the box in the ongoing campaign.

Valencia found the equalizer for the second time in the game when Kondogbia struck after 59 minutes.

The goal spurred Los Che on and could have clinched the winner but for the unlucky Kevin Gameiro who failed to put the game to bed.

Thomas Partey and Atletico Madrid will turn their attention to the UEFA Champions League when they host defending Champions, Liverpool at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
