Eagles Roundup: Simon Nets Winner For Nantes, Collins Misses Penalty In Paderborn ‘s Home Loss To Mainz

Nigeria winger Moses Simon scored the winning goal as Nantes recorded a hard fought 1-0 home win against OGC Nice  in their French Ligue 1 clash at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau on Saturday night, Completesports.com reports.

Simon hit the back of the net four minutes from time to send the home fans into wild celebration.

It was Simon’s second goal in his eighth league appearance for the Christian Gourcuff’s Nantes.

The 24-year-old was replaced by Samuel Moutoussamy deep into stoppage time.

Also in France, Henry Onyekuru was not listed for action in Monaco’s 3-1 away defeat to Montpellier

Onyekuru has made four league appearances  for Monaco  but is yet to open his goal account  for the season.

Still in France, Samuel  Kalu was not included in the  matchday squad in Girondis Bordeaux’s 3-1 away win at Toulouse.

Josh Maja  was benched for the entire minutes by  Bordeaux  in the game.

In Germany, Jamilu Collins missed a penalty as Paderborn  lost 2-1 at  FSV Mainz.

Collins, who scored his first ever Bundesliga  goal for Paderborn  against  Champions Bayern Munich  last week, failed to convert from the spot 11 minutes from time.

U-23 Eagles forward, Taiwo Awoniyi  was an  unused substitute  for Mainz in  the game.

Moving on to Spain, Samuel Chukuweze saw action for 90 minutes but could do little  to prevent Villarreal  from losing  2-1 against Osasuna at the Estadio El Sadar (Pamplona Iruñea))

Ramon Azeez featured for 51 minutes in Granada’s 4-2 away defeat  to Real Madrid.
