Tim Weah's run of form for Lille continues.

The 20-year-old U.S. men's national team forward scored his third goal in five matches across all competitions for the Ligue 1 contender, opening the scoring at Montpellier in Lille's 3-2 victory on Wednesday.

Weah, who recently scored in the Europa League vs. Celtic and again in Ligue 1 vs. Dijon, did it again in league play by toeing the offside line before being played through by Xeka. Weah deftly hit a ball off the outside of his right foot in the face of an onrushing goalkeeper, finding the back of the net to make it 1-0 in the 23rd minute.

While the appearance was Weah's 11th in league play this season, the start was his first, a sign that he's not just over the injury woes that have limited his past two seasons but that he's also rounding into a more consistent and productive player for a club with eyes on ending PSG's reign atop the league.

Lille finished the day level on points with Lyon (though trailing by one in goal differential) and one point clear of PSG through 17 matches this season.
