"the result of yesterday's match" sounds more correct to me.

what's wrong with "Yesterday match's result tightened the gap between Tono and Andi."

"Yesterday match" is incorrect English. It is yesterday's match.

I understand why you want to say "match's result". Yes the result belongs to the match, but we don't usually say "match's result", we just say "match result", like science fiction, ground level, kitchen door, table leg, etc. I think the grammatical term is "compound noun".
