Thomas Partey cracks Cesarini Zone

With his strike against Eibar, our midfielder has scored seven goals in the last few minutes of a game.

Thomas Partey netted against Eibar his 13th goal as an Atleti player. The midfielder scored the winner against the Basque side in the 90th minute of the game, securing the comeback to send the Wanda Metropolitano into delirium. However, it was not the first late strike netted by the Ghanan, as seven of his 13 goals (54%) have been scored in the last 10 minutes of a match, commonly known as the Cesarini Zone.

In fact, when Thomas played at our Academy – which he joined in 2011 – he also used to score these kinds of goals, such as his 87th minute strike to earn Atleti B a 5-4 win over CF Fuenlabrada.
