#2 Captain Mendy leading from the back

Bernard Mendy
Not only has Mendy shielded the post but when needed he has pressed hard up front

Playing as a centre back, Captain Bernard Mendy had crucial roles to play in both the goals scored. Not only has he shielded the post but when needed he has pressed hard and it has yielded results for the team.

Just like the first goal, the move for the second goal was also started by none other than captain Mendy. He was the one who passed the ball to Augusto, who played a one-two with Jeje before crossing it to Succi, who headed another beautiful goal.

Davide Succi, who missed few good chances in the first half was a different man in the second as he made up for everything by beating Edel Bete in the 51st minute. This is the first time this season that Bete has conceded two goals in a single match.
