Mohamed came off the bench in the 59th minute with the visitors leading 2-0, courtesy of goals from Axel Disasi and Eliot Matazo in the 21st and 30th minutes, respectively.

He made an immediate impact as he rose above the defense to meet Ludovic Blas’ corner with a powerful header into the back of the net six minutes later.

Blas turned from provider to scorer as he grabbed the equaliser in the 78th minute.

The result leaves Nantes in 14th place with 31 points after 30 games, just five points above the relegation zone.

It’s Mohamed’s seventh goal in 29 league games, in addition to three assists.

The 25-year-old striker joined Nantes on a season-long loan from Galatasaray with an option to buy, but as of yet, the Ligue 1 team has not triggered the clause.
