5. Matheus Uribe
Club America kept their undefeated streak alive and earned their fifth win of the season thanks to a brace from the Colombian midfielder. Uribe’s second goal put Leon’s chances at points to rest and his shot from just outside the box proved impossible to block from Yarbrough. His four goals on the year are tied for the most by a midfielder in the Liga. America beat La Fiera 2-0 on Saturday.
4. Julio Cesar Furch
Despite Club America not having lost a single game this season, it is Santos Laguna who are at the top of the mountain in the Liga MX. Santos took down a struggling Monterrey side and Furch’s fantastic volley helped Los Guerreros turn the tides on the Rayados after being down by one goal. Santos beat Monterrey 3-2 on Sunday.
3. Angel Mena
Come on, don’t tell us you saw this one coming. In possibly the most unexpected result of the year in the Liga MX, Cruz Azul defeated Pachuca by a score of 5-0 on Saturday. Almost every offensive-minded player for La Maquina scored in the matchup, including Mena who had a brace. Every goal was impressive, but the last one was the cherry-on-top of an unpredictably amazing night for Pedro Caixinha and his squad.
2. Andre-Pierre Gignac
Business as usual for Gignac. The French icon has become well known for his goals that almost no one else can do. Saturday was no different. Gignac’s lone goal was enough for the Liga MX champions to defeat Tijuana. Tigres fans will hope Gignac’s unique scoring kicks in on Tuesday as they will try to come from behind and defeat Toronto FC in the CONCACAF Champions League. If this is the Gignac that comes out, then the MLS champs are in for a challenge.
1. Everaldo Stum
Wow. Just wow. What a way to save yourself from a loss. Everaldo’s awe-inspiring bicycle kick salvaged a point at home against Necaxa on Saturday. The Brazilian striker hasn’t really panned out since arriving in Mexico, having only scored four goals in the league since July of last year. Does this make up for his low scoring output? There is one thing we know for sure; this is the goal of the year right here.
