Lacazette in the gratin!

Thanks to his hat-trick against Toulouse on Sunday, Alexandre Lacazette took a little more care of his statistics.

Alexandre Lacazette struck a big blow on Sunday. The former Gunner sounded the revolt of his family by scoring a hat-trick, allowing Olympique Lyonnais to score their first home victory this season, their second of the season after their success in Rennes (0-1).

With this hat-trick, the Lyon striker made OL history a little further by scoring in a 100e League match. A rare performance.

With these three goals, Alexandre Lacazette also brought his total to 187 goals in the five major championships, becoming the fourth most prolific French scorer of the last thirty years behind Karim Benzema (281), Thierry Henry (233) and Wissam Ben Yedder (189). He joins David Trezeguet and Fleury du Nallo in fourth place.
