Brest midfielder Mahdi Camara scored a hat-trick to earn the Ligue 1 chasers a 3-0 win at Strasbourg on Saturday and extend their unbeaten league run to 12 games.

The win moved France's surprise package to 43 points, 10 adrift of runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain. It also meant they equalled their longest unbeaten streak in the top flight set in 1990.

The visitors grabbed the lead in the 33rd minute as Camara capitalised on a loose ball off a rebound from the defence to curl a shot from the edge of the box into the bottom right-hand corner.

Camara doubled the lead seven minutes later when he met Martin Satriano's cross right in front of goal for a simple finish before scoring his third from the penalty spot in the 60th minute to wrap up the three points.
