João Paulo named to MLS Team of the Matchday after Minnesota win

MAF01064

João Paulo loves playing against Minnesota United.

Seattle's midfield general has a tremendous record of success against the Loons in recent seasons. João Paulo put in another masterclass against Minnesota on Saturday in the Rave Green's 1-0 win at Lumen Field, earning him a spot on the Matchday 9 MLS Team of the Matchday.

Coming off a tough loss to Portland the previous week, João Paulo spurred Seattle to a bounce back win over Minnesota with a monster two-way performance in midfield. The Brazilian registered three shots, two chances created, and completed 86 of his 92 pass attempts, all while winning four tackles, four interceptions, and seven recoveries.

The Sounders return to action on Wednesday as they host USL Championship side San Diego Loyal SC (7:00 p.m. PT; B/R App, B/R Football Youtube Channel, El Rey 1360AM | TICKETS) in the U.S. Open Cup at Starfire Stadium.
