Emphatic! The boys in blue took Metz's Stade Saint-Symphorien by storm tonight (0-3). Malcom (37'), Gaëtan Laborde (71') and Isaac Kiese Thelin (76') got the goals, in a game which saw Bordeaux shine in defence and in attack. Bravo!
The Girondins came away from Parc OL with a fantastic result, after a genuinely superb performance! Despite conceding in the first minute of the game, the Girondins kept their cool. Malcom (31') equalised, and Grégory Sertic put Bordeaux ahead (71'). In the dying seconds of the game, Jérémy Ménez put Lyon's comeback hopes to bed (90'). In fairness to Lyon, Gonalons got sent off (67') and Lacazette limped off injured with no substitutes left to replace him (87'). The Girondins became the first team to win at Parc OL this season, and moved (albeit briefly) to the top of the L1 table. Well played boys!
The Girondins de Bordeaux faced FC Lorient a week after their victory in Troyes, racking up a second consecutive victory. In control from start to finish, Ulrich Ramé's boys won by a decisive three goal margin. Cheick Diabaté scored twice (21', 48'), after Malcom put Bordeaux ahead early on (12').
For their 36th game of the Ligue 1 season, the Girondins de Bordeaux travelled to face already-relegated Troyes. In an entertaining game largely dominated by the Girondins, Diego Rolan scored twice (14’, 73’), Troyes scored an own goal (41’) and Cheick Diabaté cemented his position as the club's top scorer with his eighth of the season (60’).
After defending solidly in the first half, Bordeaux went in a goal up thanks to Thomas Touré. Ulrich Ramé's side stayed strong in the second half, with Adam Ounas doubling the gap (56’) before Monaco got a late equaliser courtesy of an own goal from Frédéric Guilbert.
In another goal-packed encounter, Bordeaux got the better of Breton outfit EA Guingamp. After going two clear courtesy of Adam Ounas (19’) and Diego Rolan (37’), the Girondins let their lead slip to goals from Giresse (42’) and Coco (59’) before fighting back to victory thanks to Clément Chantôme (68’) and Cheick Diabaté (89’). But it was a night of mixed fortunes, with both Jaro Plasil and Adam Ounas limping off injured.
The Girondins needed to bounce back from the mid-week disaster in Lille, and they did so in style! Rennes were on the sharp end of a brace from Cheick Diabaté (28’, 51’), whose good run of form continues. Diego Rolan (67’) and Thomas Touré (90+2’) added to the tally, as Bordeaux swept Rennes off the park.
