Mexicans in Europe: Hirving Lozano keeps scoring, Nestor Araujo gets La Liga start

Nowadays, it can at times be daunting to keep up with all of the Mexican players in Europe. Although there was a lack of young Liga MX talent making the trip abroad in the transfer window, a lengthy list of players relevant to El Tri remain in many of the top leagues from the Old Continent.

There's plenty to cover, so in case you missed any of the action over the last few days, here's an update on some of the most prominent Mexican players in Europe:

Hirving Lozano, FW, PSV Eindhoven (Netherlands)

Lozano is on fire. On Tuesday, the winger once again found the back of the net in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League playoff round series at BATE Borisov. With the 3-2 win over the Belarusian squad, Lozano has now collected three goals in his last three games in all competitions for PSV.

Nestor Araujo, DF, Celta Vigo (Spain)

Araujo appears to be settling in well with his new club. After taking part in preseason friendlies, the 26-year-old defender was able to earn his first-ever La Liga start for Celta Vigo in the 1-1 draw against Espanyol last Saturday.

Guillermo Ochoa, GK, Standard Liege (Belgium)

The bad news: An enticing move to Napoli never developed. The good news: Ochoa continues to shine for Standard Liege. Thanks to the 3-0 win against KSC Lokeren over the weekend, the goalkeeper has now picked up three shutouts from his four starts.

Javier Hernandez, FW, West Ham United (England)

After being left out of the starting XI in West Ham's season-opening loss at Liverpool, Hernandez earned his first start of the EPL tournament last Saturday against Bournemouth. Despite the fact that he wasn't able to score, a silver-lining for the striker was his ability to win a penalty in the 2-1 home defeat.

Raul Jimenez, FW, Wolverhampton Wolves (England)

Jimenez nearly collected his second goal of the season. In the recent 2-0 weekend loss to Leicester City, the 27-year-old hit the post in the early stages of the clash. The striker, who has so far been impressive for Wolves, will have to wait until this weekend to potentially find the back of the net once again.

Miguel Layun, DF, Villarreal (Spain)

Layun was left on the bench for Villarreal during Saturday's 2-1 loss to Real Sociedad. It's still up in the air whether the versatile player will make his season debut on Sunday's upcoming match vs. Sevilla.

Hector Moreno, DF, Real Sociedad (Spain)

As opposed to Layun, Moreno played the full 90 minutes of the match against Villarreal. In theory, the veteran should have no issues maintaining his starting role with his new Spanish club.

Hector Herrera, MF, Porto, (Portugal)

Another impressive performance for the team captain. Last Sunday, Herrera emerged as Porto's leading distributor in the recent 3-2 away win against Belenenses. Herrera also nearly scored after hitting the woodwork late into the game.

Jesus Manuel Corona, FW, Porto (Portugal)

Two matches, two substitution appearances. Although Corona already has a goal in hand from a previous game, it was worrying to see the creative and agile player with only 26 minutes in the victory over Belenenses.

Carlos Salcedo, DF, Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany)

Salcedo and his Eintracht Frankfurt roster were stunned in the first round of the German Cup. Three months after lifting the 2017-18 cup title, Frankfurt stumbled to an unexpected 2-1 loss on Saturday to SSV Ulm 1846, a fourth division club.

Marco Fabian, MF, Eintracht Frankfurt (Germany)

By the time you're reading this, Fabian might have already signed with a new team. The midfielder, who was left out of the gameday squad for Frankfurt over the weekend, is reportedly set to leave the German side in the near future.

Andres Guardado, MF, Real Betis (Spain)

A bittersweet season-opener for Guardado. After being given the captain's armband for the very first time, the 31-year-old midfielder could do little to help Real Betis avoid last Friday's 3-0 loss at home to Levante.

Antonio Briseno, DF, Feirense (Portugal)

Following Monday's 1-0 win over Vitoria Guimaraes, Briseno and Feirense have kicked off the Primeira Liga season with six points in their first two games. Regardless of the fact that the 24-year-old has a long way to go before earning a place with El Tri, Briseno has looked bright in his two starts for Feirense.

Uriel Antuna, MF, Groningen (Netherlands)

Last Friday, Antuna took part in the entire second half of Groningen's 1-0 loss to Willem II Tilburg. The 20-year-old winger, who is on loan from City Football Group, appears to still have plenty of work to do before earning a starting role for the Dutch club.

Omar Govea, MF, Royal Antwerp (Belgium)

After signing him on loan from Porto, Royal Antwerp presented Govea last Thursday as their latest addition to the roster. The promising midfielder will now need to quickly adjust to the team that has already taken part in four league matches so far this season.

Oswaldo Alanis, DF, Free Agent

Before having an opportunity to play a single minute in La Liga, Getafe released Alanis from the roster on Monday. As of now, the former Chivas defender remains as a free agent.

Diego Reyes, DF, Free Agent

The situation remains fairly similar for Reyes as well. Although there are rumors of European clubs showing interest in the former Porto player, Reyes has yet to sign with a new team.
