Week 10 goals were pretty dry cut, but one goal in particular could be contender for goal of the year.

Week 10 of Liga MX brought rained out games, a thriller between Necaxa and Toluca, and most importantly a goal that will be in competition for goal of the season. Here are the top 5 goals of week 10.

5. Bruno Valdez

Bruno comes in 5th for the sheer will power to carry America to another win, sliding in and kicking the ball into the top left like he was Canadian (No?, no one else gets that? Okay). He gets the ball after a header that was blocked by La Franja’s goalkeeper and puts the blocked ball away in the 93rd minute in dramatic fashion, carrying America to a 3-2 win against Puebla after they were almost certain to tie.

4. “Cubo” Torres

You’re already tired of this list aren’t you? Torres helped Xolos de Tijuana take 3 points away against Pachuca with a sliding goal near the left post. The young Mexican striker is officially BACK! Took 10 weeks but he’s back. Jokes aside, it’s nice to see him score.

3. Miton Caraglio

Cruz Azul winning? At the top of the league table? Cruz Azul bounced back from the defeat of last week, winning 2-0 against a failing Atlas team. It’s because of the effort they put in and nothing epitomizes that more than the first goal from Caraglio. Jose Maduena, the Mexican right-back, deserves a lot of credit for this goal, not giving up on the play and giving a back-heel pass to Caraglio, who put it away curving it past the Atlas keeper.

2. Matias Fernandez

A thriller between Necaxa and Toluca brought 5 goals. While trying to stage a comeback being down 3-1, Matias Fernandez scored a beauty. Unfortunately, it was too little too late as they fell 3-2 against Toluca.

1. Adrian Aldrete

The second goal for Cruz Azul was a screamer from Aldrete. Aldrete intercepted an Atlas pass and sent in a left footed strike with the outside of his foot, curving the ball into the top right. HAVE YOURSELF A GOAL.
