Nice end winless run with victory over Troyes

Nice reclaimed third place in Ligue 1 thanks to their first league win in four - a 2-1 defeat of bottom-club Troyes.
The hosts raced into an early lead when Mahamane Traore's superb delivery picked out Valerie Germain to hammer a volley past Matthieu Dreyer from close range.
Yoan Cardinale gifted Troyes a leveller, though, when the Nice stopper inexplicably allowed Corentin Jean's effort from the byline to creep inside his near post.
But Nice reclaimed the lead with less than 20 minutes to play when an unmarked Traore volleyed beyond Dreyer after latching onto Germain's flick on.
