Top scorer: Lacazette continues goal streak

Alexandre Lacazette scored for the fourth time in six games as he continues to impress for Lyon since returning to the club last summer.

It was a quiet round of action for many of the leading scorers with 12-goal Terem Moffi missing for Lorient whilst Kylian Mbappé, Jonathan David and Wissam Ben Yedder were unable to add to their goals tally.

Alexandre Lacazette was on hand to net his 12th goal of the season in Lyon's 2-0 win at Ajaccio. The Frenchman was in the right place at the right time to steer home Nicolas Tagliafico's cross 18-minutes from time, to see off the Corsican outfit.

Neymar scored his 12th goal of the season in Paris Saint-Germain's 1-1 draw at home to Reims. The Brazilian kept his cool to beat Yehvann Diouf from close range, to score his first league goal since November.

Folarin Balogun bagged his 11th and arguably most important goal of the season in Reims' draw at PSG. The Englishman burst through on goal in added time before keeping his composure to beat Gianluigi Donnarumma. 

Alexis Sanchez scored his seventh goal of the season and his second in as many league games in Marseille's 1-1 draw with Monaco. Sanchez fired in from close range to salvage a point for Igor Tudor's side, in front of a packed Orange Velodrome.

Dutch striker Thijs Dallinga continued his solid first season in Ligue 1 Uber Eats with a match-winning double in Toulouse's 2-1 win at Strasbourg.

Dallinga delighted Toulouse's travelling fans by reacting first level the score after 25 minutes before heading the winner six-minutes after the interval. The two efforts take his season tally to a respectable six goals.

He wasn't the only one to get on the scoresheet at the Stade de la Meinau as the evergreen Kévin Gameiro  netted for the second time in three games.

The strike was his seventh in the league as he once again proves to be the one bright spark from a season that has had little to shout about for the Alsatian club.

Back in business

Stephy Mavididi scored for the first time in almost a year when he netted a double in Montpellier's 2-0 win at Auxerre.

The 24-year-old was the hero for the South-coast club, firing in an unstoppable 62nd-minute effort to open the scoring before adding a classy finish ten-minutes from time.

Next up...

Round 21 kicks off on Wednesday evening with a full round of Ligue 1 Uber Eats fixtures to feast on. Paris Saint-Germain and their magic trio of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Neymar travel to Montpellier.

Jonathan David and LOSC entertain in-form Clermont whilst Lacazette and Lyon entertain Brest and Monaco pair Ben Yedder and Breel Embolo face Auxerre.
