The Paraguayan hit a terrific finish to put MHSC ahead in Ligue 1.
A few eyebrows were raised when Montpellier Herault Sport Club bought Lucas Barrios from Spartak Moscow, bringing an end to his wanderings in Russia and China.
However, the 30-year-old is answering his critics in style. He had bagged eight goals in 19 Ligue 1 starts heading into his new team’s contest against Stade de Reims and added another on Saturday.
The striker was celebrated for his finishing during his time at Borussia Dortmund and demonstrated that he’s still got that magic touch in front of goal.
This emphatic effort opened the scoring after only four minutes against Reims.
