The four remaining Ghanaian players in European competition this season have varying degrees of opportunities to reach the semifinals, following this week’s first leg quarter final matches.
Thomas Partey played for 15 minutes in Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League victory for Atletico Madrid against English champions Leicester City at the Estadio Vicente Calderon, while compatriot Daniel Amartey sat out the game for the visitors.
Partey was sent on in place of Fernando Torres to shore up the midfield and protect the lead for the hosts on 75 minutes.
Antoine Griezmann scored the lone goal from the penalty spot as los Rojiblancos took a slim lead to the second leg in England next week.
Paulo Dybala grabbed a brace with Giorgio Chiellini scoring the third goal with a header from a corner kick as they stunned the visiting Catalans.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri left Asamoah out of the game and the Ghanaian would hope to be considered for the return leg.
The Ghanaian was deployed as part of the attacking midfield trio that played behind Swedish striker Isaac Thelin. He started on the left.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored for the Red Devils in the first half but Leander Dendoncker equalized late on 86 minutes to deny Jose Mourinho victory.
