Matias has two honours to his name. He won the Taca De Portugal with Vitor Guimaraes in 2012-13 and won Goal of the Season in 2015-16 in the Championship. He is remembered by Wednesday fans for a volley against Leeds United on 22nd August 2015 from 18 yards that flew in off the underside of the bar. Apart from that volley against Leeds, Matias hasn’t really featured for Wednesday since he picked up an injury against Brentford on 26th September 2015.
