FC Nantes were on their way to a third straight shutout loss on Tuesday, but Alejandro Bedoya ensured that did not happen with one of his best outings of the season.
Three days after playing 83 minutes in a 1-0 defeat to Guingamp, Bedoya enjoyed a strong performance that included an equalizer in Nantes’ 2-1 come-from-behind win over relegation-threatened Valenciennes. Bedoya, who played a number of positions in the match, pulled Nantes level seven minutes after they fell behind in the second half with a familiar left-footed strike and later drew a penalty kick that a teammate failed to convert.
Nantes did not allow Bedoya’s strong showing go for naught, as they found the winner a minute before the end of regulation. The victory kept the Canaries within striking distance of fourth-placed Olympique Marseille in Ligue 1.
Bedoya now has three goals this season across all competitions.
Here is Bedoya’s goal:
What do you think of Bedoya’s goal-scoring outing vs. FC Nantes? Impressed with the strike and his ability to score with his left? Do you think he will begin to find the net with more regularity?
