Yacine Bammou had put the hosts ahead early, but a Leo Dubois own goal meant things were level at the break. Emiliano Sala’s penalty restored Nantes’ lead in the second period, and the points were made safe by the January signing.

Even though he had rounded goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet, there appeared little on as he held the ball near the corner flag, yet an incredible finish into the top corner from a seemingly impossible angle ensured his side would keep the three points.

Victory means Nantes push into the middle of the Ligue 1 table, while their opponents float just above the drop zone.
