Nigeria's Terem Moffi will have to wait another weekend to get off the mark for the new season for his Ligue 1 club OGC Nice.

Nigeria international Terem Moffi and his Ligue 1 side OGC Nice continued their shaky start to the season with another drop points.

Nice have drawn three consecutive matches in the Ligue 1 for the first time since the 1971/72 season following a goalless affair with Lyon. 

Nigeria’s Moffi was in action but had a quiet outing in a dull encounter between Nice and their visitors.

The 24-year-old featured from the start and lasted 89 minutes in the encounter before he was subbed off. 

Moffi had another quiet performance for his club, with three shots attempted during his time on the pitch.

He also created one chance, made one key pass and also missed a big chance to open his account for the season.

In what was his third appearance and second start this season, the former Lorient man is yet to score but has one assist to his name.

But while they limited the visitors to little or no chances at all, Nice also struggled to give Lyon something to think about.

The home side had 24 attempts but only four of them were on target compared to just one for Lyon.

In the end, a share of the spoils was a fair result for both teams based on the performance on the night.

The result leaves Nice with three points from a possible nine after three matches while Lyon will be the happier of the two teams as they earned their first point of the season.
