The Mexicans were back in action over the weekend. Several won starts, while Memo Ochoa caught a huge opportunity to win over his keeper spot due to an injury in La Liga.
Take a look at how everyone did…
Raúl Jiménez – Benfica (Portugal)
Raúl did not start against Sporting but was subbed in during the 67th minute. Benfica would win the game, 1-0, and now have taken over as leaders in Liga NOS by two points.
Chicharito – Bayer Leverkusen (Germany)
Chicharito was unable to play in Bayer’s 3-3 against FC Augsburg due to yellow card suspension.
Raúl Gudiño – União da Madeira (Portugal)
Raúl continues to impress mightily, as he claimed his first clean sheet. Madeira would draw Belenenses, 0-0, on Sunday.
Marco Fabián – Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany)
Marco played the full 90 minutes in Frankfurt’s 1-1 draw with FC Ingolstdt. Although he has yet to score for his new club, Marco assisted on the equalizer.
Diego Reyes, Carlos Vela – Real Sociedad (Spain)
Both Vela and Reyes started for Sociedad against Levante. Diego scored the lone goal for Sociedad in the 1-1 draw.
Reyes has been experimented at both center-back and defensive midfield over the past several games for Real Sociedad.

Miguel Layún, Hector Herrera, Tecatito – FC Porto (Portugal)
FC Porto took a big hit against Braga, losing 3-1. Layún and Herrera started the game, and Tecatito came on in the second half. The loss is a major blow to their title hopes.
Memo Ochoa – Malaga (Spain)
Ochoa was subbed into Malaga’s match against Deportivo as starting keeper Carlos Kameni, was subbed out with what looks to be a serious leg injury. The game ended 3-3, but Ochoa will look to be the starting keeper for the foreseeable future.
This is huge news, as his run in Spain had been underwhelming since he was never given a spot to play. If he can tackle this opportunity, we may see Ochoa suited up in the Copa América.
