The Girondins were unable to get the better of Liverpool despite a spirited team performance. The first half saw all three goals scored in a matter of eight minutes! Henri Saivet put Bordeaux ahead (33'), before Milner equalised from the penalty spot (38') and Benteke scored the winner for the Reds (41').
Before the game, Rennes' Roazhon Park paid vibrant homage to the victims of last week's tragic events. The game that followed was a dramatic affair, with Rennes twice taking the lead (31' and 75') and Bordeaux twice equalising (41' and 78'). In the final seconds of the game Cédric Carrasso saved a penalty from Giovanni Sio (90'+6) and in doing so saved a point for the Girondins.
Remember the game against Lyon? Same context, same result! The Girondins celebrated another fine victory (3-1) with the Virage Sud faithful. It could all have been so different... trailing 1-0 after 24 minutes, we then lost Cédric Carrasso to injury, replaced by Jérôme Prior (26’). But Bordeaux came from behind to take the lead courtesy of goals from Nicolas Maurice-Belay (37’) and Cédric Yambéré (40’), with Jaroslav Plasil sealing the deal in the second half (49’). Bordeaux are back!
Bordeaux seemed to be on their way to victory thanks to a Thomas Touré goal in the 65th minute, but the final corner of the night saw Salatic snatch an equaliser in the 93rd minute. The Girondins were sorely disappointed after a spirited, united performance.
After last year's upset against Ile Rousse in the Coupe de France, the Girondins were once again on the receiving end of some rough Corsican hospitality at Stade Ange Casanova, losing this time at the hands of Gazelec Ajaccio. Larbi scored twice, sealing a victory the Corsicans dedicated to kit man Frédéric Rossi, who died suddenly this afternoon.
The boys in blue came away 1-0 winners thanks to a stunning half-volley from Adam Ounas in the 78th minute! Just rewards for the Girondins' fighting spirit in what was otherwise a very scrappy game. Frédéric Guilbert was stretchered off injured after half an hour, having taken a knock to the left calf. Three points which will help to take some of the pressure off the Girondins.
Sometimes in European football, you have evenings you'd rather forget. This was one of them. After going behind to a goal from Lacroix in the 22nd minute, the Girondins spent the rest of the match searching in vain for an equaliser. The red card shown to Wahbi Khazri at the end of the game changed nothing. The Girondins were beaten by a highly pragmatic Swiss side.
This evening's match saw an emotional outpouring of tributes to Dominique Dropsy.
The funeral of Dominique Dropsy was held this Wednesday morning at Bordeaux's Eglise Notre-Dame, with around 600 mourners turning out to pay their respects to the legendary goalkeeper. An opportunity to remember 'Doumé'.
It all started so well... Diego Rolan gave Bordeaux the lead in the 38th minute. But after the break things were very different indeed. Lorient equalised then took the lead courtesy of Moukandjo (48'), Waris (64') and Touré (80'). Substitute Adam Ounas reduced the gap late-on (89'), but Lorient held out for the win.
Bordeaux threw everything they had at Kazan, but were held to a draw! They thoroughly tested the post (Guilbert) and the crossbar (Saivet and Crivelli) and ended the game against ten men, but the Girondins could not find the back of the net. Nonetheless, this point could prove to be crucial.
The matches keep coming, and you never know what to expect next! The boys in blue bounced back admirably from their mid-week disaster with a solid home win over Lyon. Wahbi Khazri scored in the 17th minute, with Jaroslav Plasil later doubling the lead (40'). Seconds before half-time, Pablo scored his first goal for Bordeaux (45+2). 3-0 at the break. No coming back. Beauvue got a consolation goal late on, but the Girondins still cruised to victory in style.A much-needed boost ahead of a big week! Merci Bordeaux !
