Atlético Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey has called for focus ahead of their derby clash against Real Madrid on Saturday.

Los Rojiblancos will travel to the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu to engage city rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish LaLiga.

Diego Simeone's side have a kind of revenge for the Super Cup final defeat but Partey believes they can achieve that only when they pay attention to details.

"It is a game in which you have to have a lot of attention, be better than them and be more forceful," said the player in statements to the media of the club, two days after the clash against the 'eternal' rival, in which he will depart since the starting lineup, as usual throughout this season.

Despite the current situation of Atlético, ten points behind the League's leadership and with a run of four official matches without winning, with only one goal in favor throughout that stretch, Thomas believes the team is "good."

"We are united , we are working well and we always know that such a match against Madrid is special for the fans . That helps us and motivates us to face it with maximum concentration," he said.
