Ligue 1 Top Scorers: Matchday 30 – Lacazette Closes In On Cavani

Matchday 30 in Ligue 1 saw 24 goals over the ten matches including six as Bordeaux thrashed Montpellier 5-1. We take a look at how the results affected the top scorers in the league.

Alexandre Lacazette moved within four goals of Edinson Cavani at the top of the Ligue 1 scorers chart but he couldn’t propel his side to a win over PSG.

Lyon did take the lead through Lacazette’s opener after six minutes, his 23rd league goal of the season.

He has five goals in his last six games and is now three goals behind his best scoring season two years ago.

For only the ninth time this season, Cavani wasn’t on the scoresheet, and this is the first time this season that he hasn’t scored in consecutive league games.

Monaco continue to edge closer to the title and the emergence of young talent Kylian Mbappe has been a key factor in that.

The 18-year-old scored twice in the 3-0 win over Caen and now has 12 league goals this season.

The striker has five goals in his last three matches and has one of the best minutes to goals ratios (82 mpg).
