Result: Last-gasp Alexy Bosetti finish gives Nice win

Nice earn a late victory over Metz in Ligue 1 as striker Alexy Bosseti scores in the fifth minute of injury time to give his side a 1-0 win.

A last-gasp finish from Alexy Bosetti in the fifth minute of additional time has handed Nice a slender 1-0 victory over Metz in Ligue 1 this evening.

In a limp first half, the game's first chance did not arrive until after 20 minutes, and it was Nice who almost went ahead when Dario Cvitanich lashed his shot onto the crossbar.

The hosts threatened again just before the break as Cvitanich looked to turn provider when he found Carlos Eduardo in space, but his long-range effort was saved by Johann Carrasso in the centre of goal.

After a quiet opening period, Metz were presented with a perfect chance to go in front just after the break, but it was wasted by Modibo Maiga, who headed high and wide to the right after Kevin Lejeune's cross.

Souleymane Diawara had the chance to break the deadlock midway through the second half, but he could only send his header over the bar after being picked out by Niklas Hult.

It looked as though the fixture would be heading for a draw, only for Bosetti to turn the game on its head, as he produced a deft finish to win the encounter with one of the last kicks of the game.
