5. Djaniny Tavares

We start out with Djaniny Tavares who saved fans from having to watch the fifth 0-0 game this weekend with this tremendous goal against Morelia. The Cape Verdean striker struggled last season but is now leading the league with five goals. His far-post finish was enough to beat Monarcas 1-0 on Sunday.

4. Erick Aguirre

Pachuca finished the first half against Lobos BUAP with a three-goal lead thanks to the 20-year-old’s cheeky goal. A great pass from Keisuke Honda gave Aguirre the opportunity and he made the most of it by side-stepping the keeper and scoring the last goal for Tuzos on Saturday.

3. Edwin Hernandez

Chivas fans and players alike couldn’t be happier to return to winning form after beating Necaxa on Saturday, especially after seeing this fantastic freekick goal. El Aris stepped up to the plate and didn’t disappoint, letting the ball fly past the wall before grazing a Necaxa defender and finding the back of the net. Hernandez’s goal was the last one in the 3-1 win for Chivas.

2. Luis Quinones

Quinones was kicked off of Lobos BUAP’s squad last season following acts of indiscipline, but Toluca still decided to take a chance on the Colombian winger. He repaid the team with this beautiful left-footed strike from beyond the penalty box that gave Los Diablos Rojos a 2-0 lead over Atlas. Toluca would go on to win the game 3-1 on Friday.

1. Heriberto Olvera

The commentary from Fox Sports Mexico doesn’t do this goal justice. After starting near their own goal, the Lobos players put together four passes up the field before the ball finally got to the feet of Olvera. The Pachuca native shot a powerful left-footed dagger from the left side of the box that went right past Joaquin Martinez and Alfonso Blanco to start the Lobos comeback. It was to no avail, though, as Lobos would lose 3-1 to Pachuca on Saturday.
