Kwadwo Asamoah and Thomas Partey remain Ghana’s last men standing in this season’s UEFA Champions League as the draw for the semi-final stage was held earlier this morning in Zurich,Switzerland. Kwadwo Asamoah was a late substitute as Italian Champions Juventus held Barcelona to a stalemate at the Nou Camp to complete a 3-0 aggregate win over the Spanish champions.
Thomas Partey was an unused substitute as Athletico Madrid held Leicester City to1-1 draw  at the King Power stadium to claim a 2-1 aggregate win over last season’s surprise English champions. The draw for the semi-finals pits Juventus against French side AS Monaco whiles the other semi final will see a repeat of last season’s final when Madrid rivals,Real and Athletico face –off.
