Lacazette scored in Lyon's 3-1 win over Guingamp on Sunday, giving him 11 goals this season, tops in Ligue 1.

Lacazette has been on fire recently, scoring or assisting at least one goal in seven straight matches (eight goals and four assists over that span). His goal tally puts him one ahead of Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac, while his four assists are tied for the league lead. He'll look to continue his streak after the international break against 15th-place Bastia on Nov. 22.

Lacazette now totes 10 goals through 12 Ligue 1 matches, putting him level with Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac for France's scoring lead. Helping Lacazette's prospects is the fact that he's slated to play Guingamp's second-worst defense next weekend.

Lacazette bagged a hat-trick in Lyon's win against Lille over the weekend.

Lacazette has started this season in sensational form, as he currently ranks second in Ligue 1 with seven goals through nine matches. Additionally, the Frenchman leads the way with 36 shot attempts (18 on goal) on the campaign. Sunday's hat-trick came from six shots and each of Lacazette's three goals found the bottom right corner. Following a breakout 15-goal season last term, the 23-year-old has continued to impress this time around, making him among the France's most promising young talents.

Lacazette scored in the 76th minute of Lyon's 2-1 loss to Toulouse on Saturday.

Lacazette has now scored in both of Lyon's game this season, as he is well on his way to beating last year's 15-goal total in 36 Ligue 1 appearances. While he was linked to a few different clubs earlier this summer, he appears to be staying at Lyon to keep attacking the net.

Lacazette converted a second-half penalty kick in Lyon's 2-0 win over Rennes on Sunday.

Lacazette burst onto the scene with 15 goals in 36 league appearances last season, which saw him oust striker Bafetimbi Gomis as Lyon's top scorer. Despite drawing transfer interest this summer, the 23-year-old remains at the French club and could very well lead Lyon in scoring once again this season.

Lacazette netted 15 goals in 36 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon this season.

Lacazette finished as Lyon's top scorer this season after entering the campaign with nine career league goals. Amid uncertainty surrounding fellow striker Bafétimbi Gomis' future at Lyon, Lacazette took full advantage of the club considering new options up front. At just 22 years old, Lacazette looks to have a bright future at Lyon and should carry a larger workload next season since Gomis is expected to leave as a free agent this summer.

Lacazette scored his 14th league goal of the season during Lyon's 2-1 loss to Saint Etienne on Sunday.

Lacazette's previous season-high for league goals was five, so this term's 14 clearly evidence his development. In fact, only Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored more goals than Lacazette in Ligue 1 this season.
