Nice overcame Montpellier HSC with a controlled performance in Ligue 1.
Nice stunned Montpellier in Ligue 1 to gain all three points thanks to a Stephane Bahoken brace.
Last season’s champions were never really at the races, and Nice fully deserved their victory.
Both Bahoken’s goals came from being in the right place at the right time.
The 20 year-old, starting his first match of the season, showed great movement in the box to tap Eric Bautheac’s cross for the opener, and was rather more fortunate with his second.
Luigi Bruins fired onto the post, and the ball rebounded perfectly for Bahoken to convert.
Though Younes Belhanda hit the woodwork for Montpellier in the closing stages, the away side were left with nothing to show for their efforts.
