Chucky Lozano on fire

It was his goal against Excelsior which was the deciding factor for PSV. In the 41st minute, Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano received the ball in the box, turned, and slotted home the 2-0 lead. The goal now puts his tally to 10 goals in 11 games. Chucky is hitting a streak that no foreigner has ever done in the Eredivisie.

With one loss, PSV is on top of the Eredivisie with 36 points, the closest to them is Ajax with 28. They’ll look to continue adding to their standing on December 3 against Sparta Rotterdam.

Mexico’s skipper returned to give Real Betis one of their best goals of the season. Andrés stepped up to take a free-kick in the 85th minute while down 0-1, his delivery was too deadly for Girona to stop.

The game ended 2-2, and Guardado went the full 90 minutes. He now has a total of 6 assists and one goal in his 2017/18 La Liga run.
