Brilliant Bordeaux set new standard

FC Girondins de Bordeaux are within one point of the Ligue 1 lead after a 6-0 win at AS Monaco FC while Olympique de Marseille beat Paris Saint-Germain FC.

FC Girondins de Bordeaux are within one point of Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyonnais following a club away league record 6-0 win at AS Monaco FC while Olympique de Marseille moved into the top four with a 2-1 victory against arch-rivals Paris Saint-Germain FC.

Bordeaux score six
It takes a lot to overshadow a Marseille-PSG encounter, but Bordeaux produced a remarkable performance in a game which was still goalless after 51 minutes. That was when Wendel set up Fernando Cavenaghi to open the scoring and Johan Micoud made it 2-0 on the hour from close range. Cavenaghi chipped Flavio Roma four minutes later and not long afterwards Monaco midfielder Diego Pérez was sent off for a foul on David Bellion. The home team did hold on until nine minutes remaining, but then Marouane Chamakh deflected in a free-kick from Micoud, who then struck the fifth before Gabriel Obertan rounded off the scoring in added time. That result capped a perfect weekend for Bordeaux following Lyon's costly 1-0 loss at Le Mans UC 72 on Saturday. The top two meet in Lyon on 8 March.

Marseille comeback
Marseille are ahead of OGC Nice on goal difference in the top four but had to come from behind against PSG. Laurent Bonnart was adjudged to have tripped Amara Diané inside the Marseille box and Jérôme Rothen, after having to retake the penalty due to encroachment, converted at the second attempt on 29 minutes. But Marseille were determined to turn the score around and Taye Taïwo equalised in the 37th minute, heading in a Samir Nasri free-kick, and just before half-time Mamadou Niang struck a superb shot from the left for what proved to be the winner.
