Some African stars were among the goals in Sunday’s matches in the French top-flight

Lens star Seko Fofana, Angers winger Sofiane Boufal and Monaco’s Sofiane Diop found the back of the net for their respective clubs in Sunday’s Ligue 1 matches.

Diop scored in each half of the 2-1 win at the Stade de l’Aube to give Monaco their maiden voyage of the season after losing their last two league games.

The Senegalese and Moroccan descent fired the visitors ahead in the 40th minute to separate the teams at the break.

Six minutes after the restart, Monaco defender Ruben Aguilar turned the ball in the back of his own net, but Diop restored their lead with his second goal of the day in the 57th minute.

Guinea-Bissau striker Mama Balde was also in action for Troyes, but he could not inspire them to end their four-game unbeaten run.

Sunday’s win moved Monaco to 13th in the Ligue 1 table with four points after four games, and Troyes remains at the bottom with one point after the same number of games.

At the Stade Raymond-Kopa, Boufal took his count to two goals after four games on Sunday after the Moroccan farmer opened the scoring in the 57th minute when Angers defeated Rennes 2-0 at home.

Senegal goalkeeper Alfred Gomis could not stop the attacking threat from Gerald Baticles’ side as 17-year-old Mohamed-Ali Cho doubled their lead two minutes from full-time.

Angers climbed to the top of the table with 10 points from four games, awaiting the results of PSG and Nice matches, while Rennes is in eighth place after collecting five points from four outings.

Elsewhere, Ivory Coast star Fofana Lens helped avoid defeat to Terem Moffis Lorient with his third goal of the season in a 2-2 draw.

After watching the majority of the match, Fofana seized a 70 – minute equalizer to extend Blood and Gold’s unbeaten start to the campaign.

Moffi could not find the back of the net, but he provided assistance for his side’s second goal earlier in the first half.

The lone point put Lens in sixth place with six points after four games, while Lorient came after one point in seventh place.
