Igobor Moffi scored brace against Monaco Sunday

 

Nigerian player Terem Igobor Moffi made the whole difference  on Sunday as Monaco and Lorient settled for a 2-2 draw.

The 21 year old forward notched both goals for Lorient as they became the first team to take a point off Monaco in the new year, slowing the belated title push being made by Niko Kovac’s side.

Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice including an injury-time equaliser as Monaco’s seven-game winning run in Ligue 1 ended Sunday following a 2-2 draw against a resurgent Lorient.

Moffi converted a penalty to give Lorient the lead on seven minutes at the Stade Louis II after Monaco goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte brought down Democratic Republic of Congo international Yoane Wissa

France striker Ben Yedder levelled from the spot early in the second half after a handball in the area, but Moffi put Lorient back in front on the hour with a composed finish after a loose pass from Djibril Sidibe.

The visitors looked on course for a fourth win in five outings only for Ben Yedder to hammer in a volley deep into stoppage time, for his 13th goal of the season.
