Europa League: Big Performance for Moses Simon, Nantes in Turin


Moses Simon was only fit enough for a thirteen-minute cameo as Nantes held Juventus away at the Allianz Stadium 1-1 draw in their Europa League playoff first-leg match.

Simon suffered an injury that kept him out of Nantes’ last three games and was only fit enough to start from the bench in Turin.

Dusan Vlahovic opened put Juventus ahead in the 13th minute of the encounter after neat work from Federico Chiesa found the Serbian in space for a simple tap-in.

In a bid to find an equalizer, Antoine Kombouaré brought on Moses Simon, but, the Nigerian was unable to find solution for Nantes.

However the visitors took the game to Juventus and rallied back to net the leveler on the hour mark with their only shot on target.

The Canaries will need a strong performance in the second leg, when they welcome Juventus to the Beaujoire Stadium on February 23.
