Terem Moffi continued his superb run of form for FC Lorient in a 4-1 win over Ligue 1 relegation rivals Bordeaux on Sunday.
The Nigerian forward scored a hat-trick to lead his team four points clear of the drop zone with four rounds of fixtures remaining.
Democratic Republic of Congo winger Yoane Wissa opened the scoring before teeing up Moffi for an easy finish. Moffi completed his brace moments later after latching onto a long ball forward from Sierra-Leone born Trevoh Chalobah before adding a third with an exquisite left-footed finish from range.
Moffi, 21, has now scored 14 goals in 28 league appearances this season.
It has been a good few weeks for Nigerian forwards in Europe’s top leagues with Moffi part of an exciting group of Super Eagles stars that includes Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Osimhen, Paul Onuachu and Samuel Chukwueze amongst others.
