5. Diego Valdes

After going one goal down to Tijuana, Morelia’s No. 10 stepped up to the plate and slotted home a sweet freekick goal that tied things up. Not even the league’s best defending team and goalkeeper could keep that ball from going in. Xolos and Monarcas tied 1-1 on Friday.

4. Rubens Sambueza

Club America’s once revered and respected captain went back to the Estadio Azteca on Saturday to break Aguilas fans’ hearts. After getting an early one-goal lead, the America defense fell victim to Sambu’s right-footed dagger that left three defenders plus Marchesin starstruck. At least he didn’t celebrate it. Toluca would go on to end Club America’s 11-game unbeaten run and win 2-1.

3. Dorlan Pabon

Monterrey was on a downward spiral that looked to be continuing going into their game against Queretaro. Diego Novaretti put the Gallos Blancos up early and it seemed like yet another unexpected team was going to upset Rayados. That is, until a great pass from Aviles Hurtado found the feet of his compatriot Dorlan Pabon, who netted a shot in the top-left corner for the second goal of his season and also the comeback. Monterrey beat Queretaro 3-1 on Saturday.

2. Victor Davila

Quickly becoming a Necaxa fan favorite and a star prospect for La Roja, the 20-year-old Chilean forward scored his fourth goal of the season in impressive fashion by helping Necaxa salvage a point against Pachuca. Huge props have to be given to his fellow Chilean teammate Felipe Gallegos for that awesome through pass to himself before adding an assist to his stat line.

1. Erick Gutierrez

The best goal of the week has to go to Guti, whose no-look header found the back of the net thanks to a great pass from Keisuke Honda. Gutierrez is not even known for scoring goals with his head, which makes this goal that much more rare and impressive from the young midfielder. Pachuca and Necaxa tied 1-1 on Saturday.
