Ligue 1 Wrap: Delort and Diallo bag braces as Mounie, Ekitike & Boufal paint France with goals

Several African stars were on song in the French elite division, nevertheless, their teams suffered contrasting fortunes on Sunday evening

Andy Delort was Nice’s hero as he found the net twice as they secured a 2-1 win over Angers in Sunday’s Ligue 1 fixture.

Prior to the game at Stade Raymond Kopa, the Algeria international had scored three goals in the 2021-22 campaign, with his last effort coming against Saint-Etienne in September.

Hosts Angers got off to a fine start and they took the lead in the 29th minute through Sofiane Boufal, who scored from the penalty spot after he was fouled in the box by Youcef Atal.
