Bordeaux oust Troyes to book final berth

FC Girondins de Bordeaux will play Évian Thonon Gaillard FC in the final of the Coupe de France after coming from behind to defeat ES Troyes AC 2-1 at Stade de l'Aube.

FC Girondins de Bordeaux fought back from a goal down to beat ES Troyes AC 2-1 in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.

Hosts Troyes, still entrenched in the Ligue 1 relegation zone despite back-to-back Ligue 1 wins, were on course to maintain their recent momentum when Jean-Christophe Bahebeck scored from close range after seven minutes. The goalscorer swiftly stung the fingertips of Cédric Carrasso with a venomous drive, before Bordeaux striker Cheick Diabaté wrested back the initiative four minutes before the break.

Diabaté then squandered a gilt-edged opportunity to give Bordeaux the lead by steering Mariano's cross wide, but Jérémie Bréchet's own goal ensured his blushes lasted just five minutes. Julien Faubert hit a post and Ludovic Obraniak fired narrowly wide as Francis Gillot's team finished with a flourish before taking their place alongside Évian Thonon Gaillard FC in the 31 May showpiece.
