Boudebouz slots double for Montpellier

Press AssociationPress Association 4/11/2016

Ryad Boudebouz's first-half double paved the way for Montpellier to claim a much-needed 3-1 home Ligue 1 win over Marseille.

Boudebouz had scored twice on his most recent appearance - a 6-2 defeat at Monaco last month - and took just four minutes to get on the scoresheet when he had a tap-in after Steve Mounie's shot was saved into his path.

The Algeria international doubled Montpellier's advantage after 36 minutes when he took a touch and volleyed home after Souleymane Camara's cross bounced through to him in the middle of the area.

Montpellier have conceded the most goals in Ligue 1 this season and gave Marseille hope when Laurent Pionnier put through his own goal.

But Mounie restored the home side's two-goal cushion moments later to seal just their second win in 11 league games.
