Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey is a doubt for Atletico Madrid’s Champions League tie with RB Leipzig after picking up a muscle injury.

Partey suffered the strain against Real Sociedad and, just weeks before European competition resumes, is facing a race against time to be fit.

The midfielder is a key part of Diego Simeone’s side alongside Saul and Koke.

He has played 46 games this season, scoring four goals and giving one assist.

Atletico are intent on renewing his contract despite intense interest from Arsenal.
