After scoring a late brace in LOSC Lille's dramatic 2-2 draw against Stade Rennais, Jonathan David now has 14 goals in all competitions in 2024, more than any other player across the big five European leagues.

In 2024, three players from Ligue 1 lead the pack as Europe's top scorers in the top five leagues. Alongside David, Kylian Mbappé from PSG has netted 13 goals, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from OM isn't far behind with 11 goals.

David also outshines well-known players like Harry Kane from Bayern Munich, Paulo Dybala from Roma, Harry Kane from Manchester City, and Vinícius Júnior from Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old player has been performing exceptionally well, averaging a goal every 65 minutes across all competitions with LOSC, marking the best goal-scoring ratio on the team.


Since joining Lille in 2020, David's best scoring months have come early in the calendar. The Canadian striker has scored ten goals in January, 12 goals in February, and 12 goals in March across all competitions during his career with Les Dogues

David is also shining at the league level, having scored at least three more goals than any other player in Ligue 1 this calendar year. The Lille star also stands out for his volume of big chances in France's top flight since January.

Lille are currently vying for a spot in the UEFA Champions League next season and David's goal-scoring could tip the scale in their favor.
