Nigeria striker Peter Olayinka scored his second goal in the Europa League this season when Slavia Prague recorded an impressive 3-1 away win at OGC Nice.

Olayinka made the starter list for the second time this season in competition and made the trade to help his team maintain a three-game unbeaten streak.

Ondrej Lingr scored Prague’s first goal in the first 15 minutes, but Amine Gouir restored parity for the hosts in the second half.

Olayinka regained his team’s lead three minutes after Nice’s draw, before Abdallah Sima sealed the three points with 12 minutes to go.

But the hosts will end the match with ten men, as Hichem Boudaou received his second yellow card in overtime and received his marching orders.

Slavia Prague leads the Group with 9 points as does Bayer Leverkusen, who have a better goal difference, but the Czech Republic have a better head-to-head record.

Meanwhile, Nice is in third place with three points and Hapoel Beer Sheva is at the end with three points as well.
