He made it 3-0 for the home side in the 53rd minute before Nicolas de Preville and Otavio Henrique Santos completed the rout.

I feel good, I’m very happy to get my first hattrick for Boardeaz and in my career,” the Nigeria international said in a video shared on Twitter by Bordeaux.

Of course it’s a good night for the team as we picked up three points. We performed very well, so we are going to keep working and prepare for the next game.”

Maja has been a bit-part player for Bordeaux this season with only three starts in 14 league games. With his hat-trick, he now has five goals this season.
