When the match got tough, Athletic Madrid coach Diego Simeone called on Black Stars midfielder, Thomas Partey and he did not disappoint.

It looked like a lost game for the host who conceded twice under 20 minutes.

Young Portuguese sensation, Jao Felix breathed some life into the home side after drawing one back in the 27th minute to end the first half 2-1.

The host drew parity after just seven minutes into the second half. Victor Perez scored the equalizer after coming in for Llorente.

Athletic Madrid kept pushing in search for the winner as Coach Diego Simeone had a final card left to play.

The introduction of Thomas Partey looked like an odd call for Diego Simeone who seems to have favor the Ghanaian for his defensive approach.

He played a quick one-two with Diego Costa before moving past the last Eibar defender to place the ball beyond the reach of Dmitrovic.

The goal completed a remarkable win for athletic Madrid who will play Real Sociedad next in the La Liga.
