A firm fixture in the starting line-up ever since his arrival in January, Isaac Kiese Thelin put in a serious performance this weekend. The Swedish international latched onto a pass from Wahbi Khazri to open the score. He was a constant threat in attack throughout the game.
The Girondins were unable to get the better of Stade de Reims tonight. In the 18th minute Isaac Kiese Thelin pounced to open the score, before Charbonnier levelled on the half-hour mark. Neither side would score again. Bordeaux avoided embarrassment and picked up one more point in their race for Europe.
The Girondins put on a fine display in Brittany, but failed to make their possession count. Rennes scored first courtesy of Paul-Georges Ntep (11’), then set up to defend. Utterly dominant throughout, Bordeaux were thwarted by the heroics of Rennes keeper Costil until they managed to salvage a point courtesy of a generously-awarded penalty (Khazri, 77’). The Girondins could reasonably have hoped for more.
The Girondins are right back at the heart of the race for Europe! This afternoon they beat Saint-Etienne courtesy of a goal from Diego Rolan (42’), keeping the pressure on the teams at the top. Willy Sagnol's side have every reason to be satisfied with their performance today, with a good result but also a great display of team spirit and some fine, flowing football.
Today at 13:45, BenGi made her grand debut at Stade Chaban-Delmas !
The Girondins brought home all three points from their trip toEvian. Wahbi Khazri got the goal early on (11'), and thereafter Bordeaux remained in control of the game. Nevertheless, it took a few acrobatic saves from Cédric Carrasso to maintain the lead.
Bordeaux were held to a draw this evening by Guingamp (1-1), with Maxime Poundjé (55') equalising after Beauvue gave the visitors the lead (28'). Guingamp dominated the first half and Bordeaux the second, with Cédric Carrasso pulling off some fine saves and Diego Rolan seeing a shot cleared off the line. The sending off of Jaroslav Plasil in the 80th minute did nothing to change the fate of this game, as both teams took away a single point.
The Girondins de Bordeaux are delighted to announce the arrival of Clément Chantôme. The international midfielder signed his new contract with the club this morning. Bienvenue à Bordeaux Clément !
Emiliano Sala will be joining SM Caen for the rest of the season. The FC Girondins de Bordeaux and the Normandy club have agreed terms for a loan deal until June, with no option to buy.
The Girondins travelled to Corsica to face SC Bastia this evening, for their 22nd game of this Ligue 1 season. Bordeaux wasted no time in taking control of the game, creating countless chances and dominating a Bastia side who were down to 10 men after Cahuzac saw red in the second half. But the Girondins never managed to convert this dominance into goals, and almost got caught out towards the end.
The Girondins de Bordeaux are proud to announce the arrival of Isaac Kiese Thelin. The forward joins the club from Malmö FF, after successfully completing his medical and putting pen to paper on a four-year deal. Välkommen !
