Nice to second place with 2-1 win over Dijon

Sep 22, 2019

Paris (France) Sept 22: Former Ajax striker Kasper Dolberg scored his first goal for Nice as they moved level on points with Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain with a 2-1 win over Dijon on Saturday.
Dolberg, 21, who left the Champions League semifinalists over the summer, brought his side level after Julio Tavares' opener for the visitors, who are yet to win this season.
African Cup of Nations champion Youcef Atal then scored the second-half winner for Patrick Vieira's side, who were brought by British petrochemical businessman and owner of Ineos, Jim Ratcliffe in August.
The victory means Nice join champions PSG on 12 points but the Parisians sit at the top of the table on goal difference before they travel to Lyon in Sunday's headline tie of the weekend.
Earlier on Saturday, Valere Germain's second goal in as many games salvaged a 1-1 draw for Marseille against Montpellier in a fiery encounter that saw three players sent off in a stoppage time bust-up.
Monaco are still looking for their first win of the campaign after dour goalless draw at Reims.
Brazilian Pablo's 70th minute header claimed a 2-2 draw for Bordeaux against Brest leaving Pablo Sousa's side in sixth place.
