Ghana star Thomas Partey is expected to take part in Saturday's Madrid derby after coach Diego Simeone included him in Atleti's 18-man squad. 

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a good run of games in the last few weeks and is likely to start against Real Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

 

here is no love lost between the Madrid clubs, with second-placed Atletico two points ahead of Real but languishing six points behind table-toppers Barcelona.

A defeat for either side would severely dent their hopes of reeling in Barca

Partey has played a total of 19 games in La Liga this season, scoring two goals.
