Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to showcase his goal-scoring prowess for Olympique de Marseille, with the Gabonese international finding the back of the net once again in their recent clash against Lorient during the 33rd French Ligue 1 encounter.

In a pivotal moment during the match, Aubameyang capitalized on a precise cross from Murillo, positioning himself adeptly in the area to give Olympique de Marseille the lead in the 37th minute of play.

With this goal, the 34-year-old striker notched his 28th goal of the season across all competitions, marking his 14th in Ligue 1 alone.

Additionally, his tally of 11 assists in 49 appearances for the French club underscores his multifaceted contribution to the team’s success, having played a role in 39 goals for Marseille throughout the season.

Aubameyang’s remarkable performance against Lorient adds yet another accolade to his illustrious career at Olympique de Marseille.

Despite joining the club just last season, the former Arsenal player has consistently exceeded expectations and raised the bar with each match he plays. His latest achievement sees him setting a new milestone in front of another club legend, Mario Zatelli.

At 34 years and 329 days, Aubameyang becomes the oldest player to reach the milestone of 15 goals in a single Ligue 1 season for Marseille, surpassing Zatelli’s record set at 34 years and 89 days during the 1946/47 season.

As Aubameyang continues to lead the charge for Olympique de Marseille with his exceptional goal-scoring abilities and unwavering determination, he remains a pivotal figure in the team’s pursuit of success in the French Ligue 1 and beyond.
