In the first half, the former Flying Eagles striker found the net, and he sealed his brace in the second period. Khalil Fayad also contributed to the scoring as Montpellier secured all three points.

Akor Adams, the red-hot Nigerian striker, wasted no time, registering his sixth league goal within just 13 minutes of the game, giving the home team an early lead.

In the second half, Khalil Fayad extended Montpellier’s advantage to 2-0 after 18 minutes, and nine minutes later, the 23-year-old Nigerian goal poacher added his second goal.

Currently, only Kylian Mbappe of PSG has more goals than the Nigerian in Ligue 1 after ten rounds of matches.

Adams has made a quick impact in the French League after his €4.5 million move from Lillestrom to Uber Eats Ligue 1 during the summer.

With seven goals in as many games, the former Nigeria U-20 striker has become a vital player for Michel Der Zakarian’s team.

However, the victory elevated Montpellier to 11th place with 11 points, with an additional match to play, while Toulouse, their opponents, remained in the 12th spot with the same points.

Montpellier’s next match will be against PSG on Friday.
