Desire Oparanozie scored the only goal for Guingamp as they held Montpellier to a 1-1 draw in a French top-flight game on Wednesday.

Oparanozie, who struck from 40 metres to end a 12-match drought in her side's 2-0 win over Paris, continued with her fine form, rescuing her side from defeat in Montpellier.

After Valerie Gauvin gave the hosts the lead 31 minutes into the contest, the Nigerian struck 10 minutes after the restart to ensure both sides shared the spoils at Stade Bernard Gasset Terrain.​

The 25-year-old, who lasted the duration of the match, has now scored two goals on the bounce for Guingamp in seven matches.

The draw means Guingamp remain fifth on the French women's log with 14 points and they will take on Dijon in their next league tie on December 7.
