Soccer-Nice shock PSG 3-2 with Moffi double

PARIS (Reuters) – Nice forward Terem Moffi scored two goals and earned an assist to help his side to a 3-2 win at Paris St Germain in Ligue 1 on Friday, condemning the hosts to their first defeat of the season.

Moffi put Nice in front in the 21st minute, netting low inside the near post, before Kylian Mbappe smashed it in from the edge of the box to draw PSG level just before the half-hour mark.

But forward Gaetan Laborde restored the lead for Nice after the break from close range, capitalising on an excellent ball control and a pass from tight angle by Moffi.

Moffi then made it 3-1 with a low shot in the 68th minute.

Mbappe returned on the scoresheet three minutes from time with a shot that bounced off the ground before making it inside the far post but the Parisians lacked time and precision to rescue a draw.

PSG, who could have provisionally topped the standings with a win, slipped down to third on eight points.

They are one point behind second-placed Nice and two points off leaders AS Monaco, who travel to Lorient on Sunday.
