1. Alexandre Pato

Stats: 1 assist, 4 shots, 3 chances created, 4/8 succesful dribbles

Ok, Pato should've scored at least one but probably several goals in this game. The Brazilian found so many good spots in and around the box and squandered excellent chances to put the game away. However.

It takes something special to get into those good positions and everything else Pato did was fantastic. Playing as a ten allows him to open up play with his passing and vision, plus his technical skill allows him to weave out of tight areas better than anybody else on the team. He even put in some defensive work to win the ball back. It should've been better, but Pato was still excellent for Orlando City on the day.
