Simon inspires Nantes to key Ligue 1 victory

Super Eagles star Moses Simon scored one and assisted another to help Nantes come from behind twice to beat struggling Girondins Bordeaux 5-3 in an exciting Ligue 1 clash on Sunday.

With a place in the European qualification spots still in sight, Nantes manager Antoine Koumbare unleashed his four most effective attackers from kickoff on the struggling visitors.

Moses Simon, substituted in the loss at Marseille last time, combined with Ludovic Blas, and Kalifa Coulibaly to provide the service to lone forward Randal Kolo Muani.

Still, it was Bordeaux that raced to a two-goal lead within the opening 18 minutes through Mbaye Niang and Dilrosun – an advantage they held until the break.
