Nice leapfrog Lens, Strasbourg score first win of 2024

Nice's Nigerian forward #09 Terem Moffi (R) celebrates his team's first goal during the French L1 football match between RC Lens and OGC Nice at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens, northern France, on March 16, 2024.

Nice have ended a six-match winless streak in style with a 3-1 victory at last season's French league runners-up Lens.

The result moved Nice to fourth in Ligue 1, a point above their hosts, who failed to make the most of numerous chances on Saturday.

Forward Terem Moffi scored twice for the visitors, with Khephren Thuram adding Nice's other goal.

Elye Wahi reduced the deficit for Lens with 15 minutes left.

Dutch striker Emmanuel Emegha scored twice as Strasbourg snapped an eight-game winless streak by beating struggling Nantes 3-1.

Emegha has been one of the revelations of the season, with seven goals in 22 matches.

His double helped Strasbourg to their first league win in 2024 and move them up to 12th place, six points above the relegation zone.

Kevin Gameiro opened the scoring for Strasbourg after just three minutes before Eray Comert put the teams level from close range before the interval.

Emegha made it 2-1 just after the hour mark with a right-foot shot and scored again in the 78th minute after dribbling past goalkeeper Alban Lafont.

Runaway league leaders Paris Saint-Germain play on Sunday at Montpellier, with second-place Brest hosting Lille.
