Willy Sagnol fielded his preferred 3-5-2 at the Stade de la Licorne in Amiens, the scene of this evening's game. After dominating the first hour of the game, the Girondins held on well at the end of a hard-fought match. Wahbi Khazri and Cheick Diabaté got the goals.
Willy Sagnol faced the media today, to offer his response to the controversy which sprang up on Monday after the interview he gave to local newspaper Sud Ouest. He read a prepared statement, answered a few questions and concluded by reading an extract from a blog.
The Girondins sealed their second victory of the week over south-west rivals Toulouse this evening. Marc Planus (52’) and Diego Rolan (63’) put Bordeaux in front, with Pesic pulling one back for the visitors (68’). The boys in blue remain masters of the Garonne !
The Girondins ran out 3-1 victors at the Stadium de Toulouse after a solid, pragmatic performance. Nicolas Pallois (17'), Diego Contento (25') and Cheick Diabaté (68') got the Bordeaux goals, with Akpa-Akpro sneaking a consolation effort towards the end (84'). Reduced to ten men again in the 65th minute, the Girondins showed what they were made of in this dramatic Garonne derby.
After getting off to a promising start, the Girondins were ultimately unable to resist PSG. A flurry of red cards and penalties changed the tone of the game, and Bordeaux ended up 3-0 down at the Parc des Princes.
