Angers beats Metz 3-0 to climb to 4th in France
After Algerian striker Farid El Melali gave Angers a fourth-minute lead, midfielder Baptiste Santamaria netted shortly before halftime and forward Rachid Alioui made it 3-0 midway through the second half.
Angers has six points after three games, one more than fifth-place Brest, which beat Reims 1-0.
Facing the club which sold him in the summer of 2017, striker Gaëtan Charbonnier — who netted 27 league goals last season to help Brest get promoted — pounced in the 87th.
Metz is 10th.
Nigeria striker Moses Simon struck a late winner for Nantes against Amiens, which had defender Bakaye Dibassy sent off after 30 minutes.
With five minutes left, however, summer signing Simon grabbed his first goal for the club.
