Nigerian striker Terem Moffi was on target as OGC Nice shared the spoils with Nantes in a French Ligue 1 clash that ended in a 2-2 stalemate.

The 23-year-old gave his side an early lead in the 4th minute in what was his 15th Ligue one goal of the season.

Former Spurs man Moussa Sissoko equalized for the hosts at the half-hour mark before the half-time break.

Burundian international Youssouf Ndayishimiye restored Nice's lead in the 70th minute after Moffi turned provider, but the visitors could not protect their lead as the home side levelled the score again with three minutes left to play courtesy of Egypt's Mostafa Mohamed.

Super Eagles star, Moffi has so far netted three league goals since joining OGC Nice on transfer deadline day.

His Nigerian counterpart, Moses Simon was also in action for Nantes in the same game but was withdrawn in the 65th minute for Mostafa Mohamed who grabbed the late equalizer for Yellow Canaries.
