Malta international midfielder Teddy Teuma scored a spectacular opening goal to help Reims secure an impressive 3-1 win over Monaco in the French Ligue 1.

Reims’s win was a huge blow for Monaco who missed the chance to climb to second place in the French Ligue 1 standings and move within four points of leaders Paris Saint-Germain with victory.

Teuma handed Reims the perfect start to the match on 35 minutes when in a quick transition he let fly a spectacular curling drive that flew into the top corner of the net.

For Teuma this was his fifth goal in the Ligue 1 this season and further cemented his importance to the club he joined this summer from Union St Gilloise, of Belgium.

Wissam Ben Yedder levelled for Monaco shortly after half-time with his 10th goal of the season.

But German Reda Khadra restored Reims’ advantage before the hour mark and Azor Matusiwa secured a second straight league win for Will Still’s men either side of the winter break in added time.

The win lifted Reims to fifth place on 29 points, just two points behind fourth-placed Brest.
