It was a roller coaster week for Mexican’s abroad this past week. We saw some great highs, but also some lows. The biggest moment happened in the Eredivisie where two Mexicans were crowned champions.
Here’s the break down of the performances…
Jonathan dos Santos – Villarreal (Spain)
Jona started in the second leg of the Europa league clash with Liverpool, but Villarreal could not keep their 1-0 lead. They would go on to lose 1-3 on aggregate.
Jona played 23 minutes, also, against Deportivo La Coruña in a 0-2 loss.
PSV was tied with Ajax on points heading into the final match of the season, but Ajax was ahead with goal differential. Both Moreno and Guardado started in the 3-1 win over Zwolle, and Ajax fell apart and could not pull off a win which crowns PSV champions of Eredivisie.
This is Guardado’s second Eredivisie title, and Moreno’s first.
Raúl Jiménez – Benfica (Portugal)
Raúl played 5 minutes in the 2-0 win over Maritimo. Raúl and Benfica are one win away from claiming the Liga NOS title, and they will play Maritimo one more time for the Portuguese Cup final.
Diego Reyes, Carlos Vela – Real Sociedad (Spain)
Diego and Carlos started in the 2-1 vicotry over Rayo Vallecano.
Carlos only played the first 45 minutes, while Diego went the full 90.
Marco Fabián – Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany)
Marco was called, but did not play for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Memo Ochoa – Malaga (Spain)
Ochoa continues to start for Malaga, and did so in the 0-1 loss to Celta Vigo.
Raúl Gudiño – União da Madeira (Portugal)
Raúl started again for Madeira in their 0-1 loss to Boavista.
Miguel Layún, Hector Herrera, Tecatito – FC Porto (Portugal)
Tecatito and Herrera did not play in the 3-1 victory over Rio Ave. Layún, however, did start and converted a penalty for FC Porto in the victory.
Chicharito – Bayer Leverkusen (Germany)
Chicharito started and went the full 90 against Borussia Monchengladbach. He would give the assist in Bayer’s goal, but they fell 1-2. The result will not matter, as Bayer is clinched for a Champions league spot.
Omar Govea was crowned champion with FC Porto B in the second division of Portugal. Omar, with Raúl Gudiño, will be called into the Mexico U-23 camp.
