Thomas Partey scored an equaliser for Atletico Madrid to revive their faint hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League against Qarabag

Qarabag earned their first ever Champions League point when they played Atletico in Azerbaijan two weeks ago, a match in which they also finished with 10 men.

Atletico again had a difficult time creating significant scoring chances against Qarabag, who played solidly defensively and took advantage of one of their few opportunities to break the deadlock.

Atletico equalised in the 56th minute with a stunning side-foot shot from outside the area by midfielder Thomas Partey, hitting the top corner after a back-heel set up by forward Antoine Griezmann.
