Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored another brace for Bayer 04 Leverkusen in a 3-1 win over FC Augsburg on Friday night, earning him the Bundesliga MVP award for a second week in succession.
Chicharito put Leverkusen 2-0 up in the 40th minute with a close-range finish inside the box.
The superstar striker was on target again in the second half - and it was right on time. Augsburg had pulled one back on the hour mark, but when Kai Havertz teed up Chicharito, he made no mistake and restored a two-goal lead.
Chicharito is an avowed team player, but his performance against FCA was undeniably outstanding and deservedly earned him the Player of the Week crown once again.
