Terem Moffi was the star for Nice as they drew 2-2 against Basel in the first leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final clash.
Basel took the lead through a Mohamed Amdouni penalty, but Moffi restored parity with a powerful low shot. The Nigerian striker then scored an incredible overhead kick to put Nice ahead. However, Nice’s failure to capitalize on their dominance in the second half allowed Basel to equalize through Amdouni’s second goal.
