Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey and Inter Milan’s Kwadwo Asamoah headlined the list of Ghanaian players who were in action on Wednesday night in Match Day 3 of the UEFA Champions League.
Partey endured a torrid time after starting the game and was substituted at half time as his Atletico Madrid side were thumped 4-0 away to Borrussia Dortmund in Group C.
In the same group, striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom lasted the entire duration of the game as his Red Star Belgrade team were handed a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of last year’s finalists Liverpool at Anfield.
But there was no place for teammate Rashid Sumaila who could only settle for a place on the Red Star bench.
The defeat means Belgrade have just 1 point in their opening three matches.
Left back Baba Rahman was not selected in Schalke 04’s 0-0 draw away to Galatasaray.
Kwadwo Asamoah played 90 minutes as Inter Milan lost 2-0 away to FC Barcelona.
Inter remain second in Group B behind the Spanish champions.
