MOTMs Oblak, Schmeichel, and Mata in packs for the next week

More MOTM hype.

EA Sports

EA’s ten-man ‘Man of the Match’ lineup this week features two Very Good goalkeeper cards in Atlético’s Jan Oblak and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel. In addition, Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata’s 70th minute goal sees him earn a spot as well as the Red Devils squeaked past Rostov, thanks to Mata’s tally and Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s away goal from the first leg.

Atlético Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak’s heroic triple-save ensured a 0-0 draw for ‘Los Rojiblancos’ as the La Liga giants went through the motions to make their way to the Champions League Quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, another goalie by the name of Kasper Schmeichel saved a crucial penalty in the final minutes as last year’s Premier League champions Leicester City completed their second-leg comeback and became the only English team to advance to the next round.

Among the other cards, Fabinho gets in with a shout for his stellar display in Monaco’s 3-1 win against Manchester City in the second-leg, and Portuguese goalkeeper Anthony Lopes also earns a card as Lyon showed Roma the door in the Europa League on Thursday, after a tumultuous 5-4 Round of 16 tie.

ALSO, This Leon Goretzka card is pretty sick.
