Ligue 1 top goal scorers 2022-2023: Updated golden boot table. A fifth straight Ligue 1 top scorer crown is very much in play for PSG star Kylian Mbappe, but he has some serious competition.
Canadian international Jonathan David of LOSC Lille is level with Mbappe on 19 goals, though both failed to find the back of the net in their last outing. PSG and Mbappe were blanked at home by Rennes, while Lille won at Toulouse with two late goals not scored by David. Also moving up the charts were Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, AS Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder, and Folarin Balogun of Stade Reims, who all notched goals and continue their hot seasons, all tied on 17 goals. They are the most likely candidates to challenge Mbappe and David at this point.
Mbappe is one of three PSG goal scorers in the top 10 with superstars Neymar and Lionel Messi also contributing to making PSG the highest-scoring team in Ligue 1 (68 goals in 28 matches).

Ligue 1 Golden Boot Winners
Below are the top scorers in each season of Ligue 1 action dating back to the year 2000.
Kylian Mbappe has won the top goalscorer award every single season since 2018/19, and he is charging up the all-time Ligue 1 goalscoring list. His 148 career Ligue 1 goals at the turn of the calendar year from 2022 to 2023 saw him sit 21st all-time despite his youthful age of 23 years old.
Other big names to win the Ligue 1 top goalscorer award in recent years include Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani, both of whom played for PSG. Olivier Giroud finished jointly atop the 2011/12 list before making a move to Arsenal, and Karim Benzema also previously won the award before his big transfer to Real Madrid.
