Eduoard Mendy once again kept a cleansheet against FC Porto, he really made some vital saves which gave his teammates the confidence to withstand Porto’s pressure. However, after his cleansheet, he remains the only European goalkeeper that have conceded only a goal throughout the champions league.
This is to say that Mendy have only been scored a goal from the groupstage of champions league to the quarter final stage.
FC Porto were not that poor but Thomas Tuchel’s tactics seems to have a different way of counteracting their pattern. Mason Mount first scored after a top class finish caused by a careless defending. Ben Chillwel also beckoned on a mistake to score an 88th minute brilliant goal.
Eduoard Mendy was at the goal post protecting his team in a grand way, he was very careful that he punched out a direct corner kick. He also covered up Moussa Marega’s one-on-one finish which could have made it 1-1.
