ISL 2018/19: Chennaiyin FC 0 - 1 Mumbai City FC - 5 Hits and Flops
#3 Hit - Paulo Machado:
Paulo Machado was adjudged with the man of the match award for putting in an extraordinary performance for Mumbai City FC. The Portuguese international was the best player in the middle of the park by winning several duels to stop the flow and maintain the rhythm with his free-flowing passes.
He made 5 crunching tackles and had a passing accuracy of 80% this game. For most parts of the second half, the visitors decided to sit back and frustrate Chennaiyin FC. The Mumbai City FC midfielder was also pivotal in cutting down the counter attacks of the opponents to safeguard the defenders at the back.
Sehnaj Singh and Milan Singh did the spare work left by Paulo Machado in the midfield to unsettle Chennaiyin FC's middlemen. They moved the ball well when they had it, and did not give it back unless they were put under severe pressure.
