In RSL’s 2-1 victory over D.C. United, the 24-year-old Argentine caught D.C. United goalkeeper Tyler Miller off his line and, from near the left sideline, scored from 68.24 yards out – nearly eight yards further than Lucas Zelarayan's Goal of the Matchday for Matchday 18.
Hany Mukhtar won the race for second, with the Nashville SC star claiming 12.2% of the vote for his first-time finish inside the side netting in the 75th minute off an audacious back-heeled assist by Dax McCarty to complete his fourth MLS hat trick and cap a 3-1 victory over St. Louis CITY SC.
Gustavo Bou took third (4.2%) for his fake cross/clinical finish with his left foot to pace the New England Revolution to a 3-1 win over Orlando City SC. Revs teammate Carles Gil finished fourth (1.9%), his low laser inside the far post capping a deadly counterattack.
