The Jornada 2 of the Liga MX gave us some fantastic goals to marvel at. Here are the Top 5.

5. Elias Hernandez

The Mexican international has a great run-up, cuts inside and scores a near-post dagger to give Leon the lead over Toluca on Saturday. This won’t be the last you see of the Panzas Verdes on this list.

4. Oribe Peralta

After missing a penalty in the second minute of their game vs. Pachuca, Club America’s star striker volleys a great cross from Renato Ibarra and gives Las Aguilas their first goal of the match. America and Pachuca played to a 2-2 draw in the game Saturday.

3. Luis Chavez

The young midfielder celebrated his 22nd birthday on Monday knowing he gave Tijuana their first win of the season courtesy of his beautiful left-footed goal vs. Necaxa. Chavez’s goal was the only one in the 1-0 Xolo win on Friday.

2. Ravel Morrison

What do James Rodriguez, Lionel Messi and Ravel Morrison have in common? All three scored fantastic freekick goals over the weekend. Atlas might have fallen 3-1 to Pumas on Sunday, but the former Manchester United man gave Los Zorros one hell of a consolation goal.

1. Fernando Navarro

Leon is back up to their old tricks. Navarro’s goal was the final nail in the coffin in La Fiera’s 3-1 win against Toluca on Saturday. The defender’s loveably arrogant chip is well deserving of the Jornada’s best goal.

What do you think was the week’s best goal? Any we missed? Let us know in the comments down below!
