They say the best central defenders end the 90’ with clean shorts due to their excellent reading of the game and there’s no doubt Maxime Chanot qualifies in that category.

Although he did have to slide once to block a dangerous-looking second half shot, Maxime utilized his game intelligence, positioning and strength to produce a Man of the Match winning performance - for the most part, on his feet.

The Luxembourg international rarely ever delivers sub-7/10 performances but this one was closer to a 9 as he halted Portland counter-attacking overtures all night long.
