5. Matheus Uribe

Uribe was Club America’s player of the game after his brace led Las Aguilas to a 4-1 win over Morelia on Tuesday. Both of his goals were list-worthy, but this great shot from beyond the penalty box was too good to pass up.

4. Nicolas Castillo

Pumas’ star Chilean striker is just as good with his head as he is with his feet. This goal below is a testament to that. Castillo connects beautifully with the ball to find the back of the net and grab the lead against Tijuana on Saturday. And check out that pass from Matias Alustiza! The UNAM celebrations did not last long, though, as Xolos would bounce back to win the game 4-1.

3. Djaniny Tavares

Djaniny has gone from forgotten forward to star striker in just eight games this season. The Cape Verdean already has 10 goals and is a shoo-in to finish the Clausura with the goalscoring title. In the goal below, Djaniny shows off his fancy footwork before lobbing it over William Yarbrough for his second goal out of three in the game on Wednesday.

2. Osvaldo Martinez

Free-kick goals are always memorable, and Osvalidto’s might just be the farthest one scored this season. Easily over 30 yards, the former Club America midfielder’s screamer tied the game up against Los Panzas Verdes to begin a comeback that would result in a Djaniny hat trick and a 5-1 win for Santos.

1. Víctor Dávila

Nacho Ambriz’s side continues to impress this season. Necaxa took down another Liga MX giant in Monterrey on Saturday by a score of 3-0. Some tremendous passing play from Davila and Roberto Alvarado (a big revelation this season) tore open the Rayados defense and Davila capitalized with a difficult far-post goal. Not even Davila could believe what just went down in that play.
