Lille striker Jonathan David is the outright leading goalscorer in the French Ligue 1 after he was on target against leaders Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the latest set of games. The Canada national team star scored his eighth league goal of the season against PSG at the Parc des Princes.
Brazilian international Marquinhos levelled proceedings for PSG with sixteen minutes to go off the assist from Angel Di Maria before Di Maria turned goalscorer on 88 minutes.

After 12 rounds of game, PSG have an eight-point lead at the top of the French Ligue 1 table. PSG have 31 points from 12 games, while Nice have 23 points from 12 games in second place. Marseille are arch rivals of PSG and they are in third place with 22 points from 12 games.
