Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez maintained his extraordinary scoring streak as two first-half goals from the Mexican international helped Bayer Leverkusen earn a 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

The forward struck in the 23rd and 39th minutes to extend his scoring streak to seven straight games for Leverkusen, scoring 10 goals in the process.

One effort was a close-range tap-in and another was a nice strike from a Hakan Calhanoglu through ball, as Chicharito's side warmed up for their midweek Champions League clash against BATE Barisov.

His two goals also meant Chicharito has now scored a brace in all three competitions Bayer Leverkusen have played in this season, in addition to becoming the first Mexican to have a a brace in a Bundesliga game.
