Pause bug (theory)

I play for quite a long time, have seen a lot of different things, but this is the first time I ran into this. Perhaps someone also had this happen, please let me know.

Well, I play with a friend online mode (I for Barça, he for Real). in one of El Clasicos happens a this episode (I will describe on the moments as it was):

- a key moment activates, I'm waiting to see what happens
- a free kick in our favor, then we lose the ball
- the opponents also lose the ball quickly and it goes to my CD Bonucci
- next to them Julian Alvarez, but he was about to go back to defend (not to pressing)
- KEY EPISODE! my friend decides at this very moment to press pause (change something in the tactical instructions)
- after quick unpause Alvarez suddenly changes his mind and takes the ball from Bonucci who suddenly decides to hesitate and simply gives it to his opponent
- then a goal happens and I lose.

I want to know if it was a pause bug or there is nothing unusual here? Again, if anyone has encountered similar please let me know.

Well if you can replicate it, than it might be a bug. I'd suggest posting this on official SI Forums in "Bugs" section.
