Monaco score late leveller in gripping draw with Nantes


Myron Boadu scored a late equaliser as French league leaders Monaco rallied to draw 3-3 with Nantes to stay unbeaten in the French league.

After winning their first two games, the principality side got off to a really poor start in western France and trailed by two goals after just 14 minutes on Friday.

But Monaco did not panic and gradually took a grip on the game, with Japan international midfielder Takumi Minamino pulling one back in the 26th minute for his third goal of the season before Mostafa Mohamed bagged his second goal of the night to restore a two-goal lead for the hosts.

France forward Wissam Ben Yedder reduced the gap in the 57th minute before Boadu levelled the scoring from close range with a strike into the top right corner six minutes from time.

With seven points from three games, Monaco have a one-point lead over Brest in the standings. Nantes secured their first point of the season.

Still looking for a first league win with just two points in as many games, defending champions Paris Saint-Germain play against last season's runner-up Lens on Saturday.
