5. Sebastian Palacios

We just had to include the Argentine on the list this week. He scored not one. Not two. Not even a hat-trick, but FOUR goals in a single game. To give you some perspective, Palacios only had two goals to his name before this game. He didn’t only score, either. Palacios was also credited with being the first Liga MX player to receive a perfect 10 rating from SofaScore after his stellar offensive performance paired with one assist, five dribbles in six attempts and an 88 percent pass accuracy.

4. Keisuke Honda

Los Tuzos had an absolute goal fest against Puebla. Moises Muñoz’s goal seemed to be double its actual size. Pachuca had six shots on target and six goals. Honda’s screamer made it 4-0 and gave the Japanese playmaker a brace. He now has six goals to go along with six assists and is a shoo-in for best midfielder in the league.

3. Angel Reyna

Nope, you’re not dreaming. Nope, it's not 2011. Angel Reyna actually scored a goal in the first division. The former Club America hotshot found the back of the net in the Liga MX for the first time in nearly a year, and what a goal it was. He helped give Los Diablos Rojos the upper hand over defending champions Tigres, catapulted them to the top spot in the league and secured a Liguilla berth to boot. Toluca beat Tigres 1-0 on Sunday.

2. Alejandro Chumacero

The world in Puebla is a very different place than it was a month ago. Just when La Franja was looking like a playoff contender, they lose four straight. Sunday against Pachuca was easily their worst loss of the season, and they’re in a tough spot to make the liguilla. At least Chumacero got the best goal of the game against Tuzos. Too bad it couldn't count toward points. Puebla lost to Pachuca 6-2 on Friday.

1. Raul Ruidiaz

Here’s a guy who’s a regular at our No. 1 spot. They say if you want to score three goals in a game easily, play Leon. That worked wonders for Monarcas and Ruidiaz. The Peruvian international, like Palacios, also celebrated a hat-trick last weekend and began it with this tremendous chipped volley-type golazo. Just like that, Ruidiaz is tied for second-most goals in the league with eight. Morelia beat Leon 3-2 on Saturday.
