Thomas Partey scores own goal in Atletico Madrid defeat to Leverkusen

Chema ReyMARCA

Despite three defeats in their first games, Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz is optimistic they can beat Atletico Madrid on Wednesday to kindle their slim knock-out phase hopes and pull off a Champions League miracle.

The Black Stars midfield enforcer was handed another start in the Uefa Champions League on the night when the Spanish top-flight side locked horns with the German side at the Bay Arena on matchday 4 of the European competition.

Partey, however, gave the hosts the lead in the 41st minute after putting in a header from a corner kick.

Bayer Leverkusen's win over Atlético Madrid is important from a mental perspective, says Kevin Volland.

Atletico would have sealed its place in the knockout stages with a win after Juventus secured a late 2-1 away win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the other Group D game.

Ederson out of Liverpool vs Manchester City with injury
It is already a very important game and you can not make it more important. Liverpool lost only one game last season and are unbeaten this season.

Having only lost to a goal by Alvaro Morata at Madrid in their last game, Leverkusen defender Sven Bender is cautiously hopeful of their chances against Atletico.

Shortly afterwards, Leverkusen had Nadiem Amiri sent off for a late, sliding tackle, leaving the Bundesliga side to play the last six minutes with 10 men.

Atletico Madrid managed to break the resistance of their opponents when Partey teed off former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata for a consolation goal at the death - albeit a red card given to Nardiem Arimi after 84 minutes. In their next attack, the ball again fell perfectly for Morata in the penalty area but goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky saved the shot with his legs.

Defeats to Lokomotiv Moscow, Juventus and Atletico leave Leverkusen without a point at the bottom of Group D with only three games left.
