Cristian Pavon - LA Galaxy - roar

The first AT&T Goal of the Week race of the 2020 MLS season already has a frontrunner thanks to a golazo from LA Galaxy winger Cristian Pavon.

GOAL: Cristian Pavon's golazo has the LA Galaxy ahead

The golazo was similar to one Pavon scored in LA’s preseason, when he dribbled through Toronto FC’s defense and sent a 25-yard bullet into the far top corner.

Pavon, 24, joined LA on loan last August from Boca Juniors and the loan deal was extended through the 2020 season. In 13 starts last year across the playoffs and regular season, Pavon had four goals and eight assists.
