Tunisia forward Saber Khlifa scored a hat trick as Evian won 3-2 at defending champion Montpellier in the French league on Saturday.

Khlifa put Evian ahead in the 30th minute when he coolly stroked the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Geoffrey Jourdren, but the home side led 2-1 at halftime thanks to goals from midfielder Marco Estrada and striker Souleymane Camara.

Montpellier twice hit the crossbar before Khlifa scored with two clinical finishes - in the 62nd and 89th - beating Jourdren both times with powerful curling shots.

The win moved Evian out of the relegation zone.
