Building on the momentum, Gaëtan Laborde electrified the atmosphere by doubling the advantage for his team, leaving Lyon reeling.

However, the pièce de résistance came 12 minutes before halftime, as Terem Moffi showcased his sheer brilliance, sealing the win and securing all three points for OGC Nice with his phenomenal goal.

Although Lyon managed to pull one back through Jeffinho eight minutes later, it was merely a consolation goal in the face of Nice’s dominance.

Terem Moffi’s heroics alongside his exceptional teammates propelled OGC Nice to a magnificent 3-1 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on matchday 38 of the French Ligue 1.

This extraordinary triumph helped them finish the season in an impressive 9th position, amassing a total of 58 points, but finished behind Lyon by five points and trailing the champions, PSG, by a mere 27 points.

In addition to his 18 league goals, Moffi also made valuable contributions with three assists throughout the season, solidifying his status as a true force to be reckoned with in the world of football.
