Thomas Partey’s Atletico Madrid recorded their eighth La Liga draw of the season as they were held 0-0 by Samuel Chukwueze’s Villarreal on Friday night.

The Yellow Submarines have had the edge over their opponents from the Spanish capital, losing once, winning four and drawing three of their eight previous encounters.

There was however nothing to separate both sides on this occasion at Estadio de la Ceramica.

Ghana international Partey was on for 59 minutes before his replacement by Vitolo. He contributed 29 accurate passes (80.6%), 43 touches, one successful dribble, one tackle and two clearances.

Chukwueze lasted for 89 minutes with Javier Ontiveros coming on. The Nigeria international was one of the impressive performers on the night, producing 61 touches, 25 accurate passes (73.5%), two accurate long balls and four total shots (two off-target, two blocked).

The 20-year old also had six successful dribbles from nine, won 11 of 17 ground duels, and also made one clearance and two tackles.

Atletico Madrid have failed to gain ground and remain sixth while Villarreal move above Real Betis in 12th place.
