Nigerian striker Terem Moffi was on target as OGC Nice edged FC Sheriff 3-1 in the Europa Conference League at the Allianz Riviera on Thursday, March 16.

The 23-year-old was also on hand with an assist to help his side secure qualification to the next stage of Europe's second-tier competition with a 4-1 aggregate win.

Gaetan Laborde gave the home side the lead at the half-hour mark before Moffi added the second in the 53rd minute.

The visitors pulled one back quickly after the Super Eagles striker gave his side a two-goal buffer in the 54th minute.

Julien Sable's side restored their two-goal lead in the 79th-minute courtesy of Algerian international Billal Brahimi who benefitted from Moffi's strike which hit the woodwork.
