Black Stars midfielder Thomas Teye Partey is charged up for Atletico Madrid’s clash with Barcelona in the La Liga on Sunday.
Diego Simeone’s side play guest to the Catalans and can go within 2 points of the leaders if they win.
Barca’s recent points dropping has inspired the Madrid-based side who are catching up with them.
And, Atleti’s Ghanaian midfielder Partey says they will fight Barca boot for boot at their own backyard.
“All matches are equally as challenging for us,” he admitted.
“We’re ready to compete. We have to be strong and fight for each ball as if it were the last.”
Champions Real Madrid have fallen out of the race and Atleti could topple Barca.
