Fresh off their disappointing Champions League round of 16 exit at the hands of Juventus, Atletico Madrid will be hoping to keep their La Liga hopes alive when they take on Athletic Bilbao on Saturday and Thomas Partey has been named in Atleti’s squad.
The Ghana midfielder is among Diego Simeone’s 19-man squad for the important clash.
Partey will be hoping to make his 24th league appearance. He has netted two goals in these games.
A win for Atleti will close the gap on Barcelona to seven ahead of the Catalan’s difficult clash on Sunday against Real Betis.
