TORONTO, Canada—Don’t look now, but Canadian international Jonathan David is heating up for Lille OSC.
The 21 year old has now scored three times in four matches after netting an 89th-minute goal Wednesday as Lille blanked Bordeaux 3-0 to remain atop the French league ahead of Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain.

This hot stretch follows a notably slow start for the Ottawa native, one that saw him score just two times in his first 25 matches with his new side following a €30 million move from Belgium’s Gent to Ligue 1 in August—the most expensive Canadian transfer to date. He now has five goals and four assists, with plenty of games still to play.
His team, Lille, are playing some fine football, having now won five straight matches with the Canadian and fellow Concacaf and U.S. international Timothy Weah spearheading the charge. They currently hold a two-point lead over Lyon, and through 23 games, Lille’s 51 points is the club’s best-ever tally at this stage.
They’ll be back in action on Sunday, taking on a 17th-place FC Nantes team, with kickoff slated for 11 am EST. Can David and Lille continue their fine run of form? If you’re interested, you can catch the match live on OneSoccer.
