The midfielder reflects on the Rojiblancos midweek clash with the French club in the elite European inter-club competition

Atletico Madrid ace Thomas Teye Partey has praised the team's spirited performance in Wednesday's 2-0 triumph over Monaco in the Champions League.

The Rojiblancos confirmed their place in the next round of the championship courtesy of goals from Koke and Antoine Griezmann at Wanda Metropolitano.

With a final round of games to go, Diego Simeone's outfit sit two points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who held Club Brugge to a scoreless draw in the other Group A fixture to secure the second qualification ticket.

"We did a great job today," Partey said after the game, as reported by his club's official website.

"We deserved the win and now we have to think about the next match.

"We're strong, we're a team.

"We're doing well and we have to continue like this."
