Liga MX Clausura Week 6: Top 5 Goals of the Week

Some were headers, some were kicked, but all five goals this Jornada were something to see.

5. Erick Gutierrez

As the cross comes in from a Keisuke Honda-corner, Guti manages to get his head on the ball and somehow finds the back of the net for Pachuca against Los Tiburones Rojos. The strange but lucky header was enough for Los Tuzos to dispose of the sinking ship that is Veracruz by a score of 1-0 on Sunday.

4. Julián Quiñones

Having earned just one point after five games, Lobos looked to be on their way to another loss after going one goal down to an equally struggling Atlas squad. But not this time. Rafael Puente and his men had enough of losing, and after an equalizer from Jeronimo Amione, Quiñones gave them the lead with this great goal from outside the box. Just look at how everyone celebrated. They NEEDED this goal.

3. Julián Quiñones

Surprise! Lobos’ golden boy is back, both on this list, and on the goalscorers table. After finding the back of the net nine times last season, tied for second most, the young Colombian striker hadn’t scored in the Clausura in five games. He made up for his mini scoring drought with a brace on Saturday leading Lobos over Atlas, 3-1. Both were golazos, and Lobos will have to hop for more performances like this from him to save their season.

2. Mauro Boselli

Leon is pretty confusing sometimes. La Fiera began the season in impressive fashion, winning twice in a row before drawing 0-0 with Cruz Azul and getting blasted by Necaxa(?!) and Monterrey in consecutive weeks. Now, they’re back to winning thanks to this beautiful header from Boselli to get the scoreboard working. Leon ended up beating Puebla 2-1 on Saturday. The Argentinian striker’s legendary goal tally in El Bajío continues to grow.

1. Matías Alustiza

I’ve always called Alustiza the Lionel Messi of the Liga MX for years now, and in true Messi fashion, El Chavo beat the Morelia defender with his pace, sidestepped Sosa, and scored with ease. Pumas found the win, 2-1, against Monarcas on Friday to establish themselves as the top team in the league with 14 points.
