ISL 2017: Best midfielders of Round 6
The sixth week of ISL 2017 has come to an end and in the five games we witnessed, there were some superb performances from various teams.
FC Pune City became the first team to stop FC Goa from scoring, while Jamshedpur FC recorded a 1-0 win over Bengaluru FC in the first ever “Steel Derby”. Mumbai City FC too recorded their first away win of ISL 2017/18 winning 2-0 against NorthEast United.
In this article, we look at 5 midfielders whose performances stood out among the rest:
Jonatan Lucca - FC Pune City
Jonatan Lucca came on as a substitute against FC Goa but he still made a big impact by scoring FC Pune City’s 2nd goal by slotting home from close range following a scramble in the box.
The Brazilian’s goal sealed the win for FC Pune City and inflicted the first home defeat for FC Goa. Lucca’s technique helped FC Pune City to keep the ball well and take the sting out of the match.
The former FC Goa midfielder also contributed defensively and worked hard. Lucca is still to perform consistently in this ISL and the Stallions will hope that the goal and the performance in his last game is a sign of things to come.
