Nantes came from behind to win at Strasbourg for a third straight league victory.

Nantes are up to fifth in the table, while Strasbourg remain bottom following a fourth successive defeat.

Wahbi Khazri scored from the penalty spot eight minutes into the second half but Bamba responded in kind with 20 minutes remaining.
