5. Djaniny Tavares
Will Djaniny ever stop scoring? That question has probably been pondered on by almost every opponent that Santos Laguna has faced this season. Santos’ star striker made the play himself before sending a powerful ball past Barovero for his 12th goal in 10 games. And is that a Black Panther celebration, Djaniny? It’s fitting. You would think he got his hands on some vibranuim during the offseason, he’s been that good. His club thinks so too. Santos beat Necaxa 2-1 on Saturday.
4. Jesus Godinez
Another season, another Clasico in the books. Chivas and America, despite what a 1-1 score usually tells you, delighted the fans with a hard-fought, entertaining match. Sticking to the theme of the last few Clasicos, it was Chivas who got on the scoreboard first thanks to an impressive weak-footed long shot from the 21-year-old homegrown striker that was just too much for Marchesin. Credit must be given to Javier Lopez as well for winning that header against the much taller Carlos Vargas.
3. Luis Gerardo Venegas
This goal was significant for two reasons; One, it was the turning point in a game that saw Puebla shock Monterrey(again) at home this time. Two, it came from the most unlikely source in 33-year-old veteran right back Luis Venegas, who scored his first goal for Los Camoteros since making the move from Chiapas FC. A thoughtful birthday present for Puebla coach Enrique Meza, who turned 70 on Saturday and who has rebuilt this team to be a Liguilla contender. Puebla beat Rayados 3-1.
2. Elias Hernandez
Oh, Leon, you never cease to confuse the fans. It seems like some days, La Fiera is easily dominated by other teams and some days it is them who dominate. Luckily for their fans, Saturday night was the latter against Pumas. Out of three goals to choose from, Hernandez’s goal was easily the best and hardest to pull off. Why? Because Elias scored that with his weak foot! Leon beat Pumas 3-0.
1. Raul Ruidiaz
This guy looks familiar. That’s because Ruidiaz scored the No. 1 goal last week as well. The only difference is this time is his fantastic goal equaled a win for Monarcas against Atlas, who continue to sink lower into the relegation table. The Peruvian striker worked his magic and graced us with a tremendous bicycle kick that no doubt deserves to be called the best goal of the week. Here’s to Ruidiaz so that he can hopefully continue to score exciting and entertaining goals for all of us to enjoy. Morelia beat Atlas 2-1 on Friday.
