Comeback kid Le Bihan moves Nice level with Monaco logo 24-02-2017

Mickael Le Bihan came off the bench to score twice and mark a stunning return from a personal injury nightmare as Nice moved level on points with Ligue 1 leaders Monaco by beating Montpellier 2-1 at home on Friday.

The visitors took a shock lead inside 10 minutes, Steve Mounie capitalising on catastrophic defending after Arnaud Souquet hit a clearance into his own man, leaving the attacker free to smash home a close-range finish.

Jese's season keeps getting worse

Younes Belhanda had a golden opportunity to level the scores against his former club after 33 minutes, but he dragged a shot wide when he should have scored, then Anastasios Donis failed to turn home a free-kick in first-half stoppage-time.

Substitute Le Bihan, who recently returned from a long spell out with a broken leg and had not appeared in Ligue 1 since September 2015, equalised after good work by Valentin Eysseric, firing home from the edge of the area.
