Result: Nantes leave it late against Valenciennes

Nantes beat Valenciennes 2-1 in Ligue 1 as Fernando Aristeguieta scores a late winner.

Nantes left it late to beat Valenciennes 2-1 in Ligue 1 this evening.

Jose Saez scored the opening goal for the visitors before Alejandro Bedoya equalised for Nantes on the hour mark.

With the game seemingly heading for a draw, Fernando Aristeguieta grabbed the winner with a close-range finish as the match headed towards injury time.

Saez's goal came seven minutes after the restart when he hit a right-footed effort high into Remy Riou's corner.

However, Nantes had their response eight minutes later when Surge Gakpe supplied Bedoya, who sent a left-footed effort right down the middle on the edge of the box.

Aristeguieta claimed the winner late on as Michel Der Zakarian's side closed the gap on Marseille in the Europa League slot to just one point.
