Anderlecht polish off Bordeaux

RSC Anderlecht 2-2 FC Girondins de Bordeaux (Agg: 4-2) Belgian side coast through despite late rally.

RSC Anderlecht survived a late rally from FC Girondins de Bordeaux to coast into the fourth round of the UEFA Cup despite being held 2-2 in the Constant Vanden Stock stadium.

Bordeaux frustrated
The Belgian side carried a 2-0 lead from the first leg in France and, playing five at the back, frustrated Bordeaux until the last ten minutes, by which time they had already doubled their aggregate lead through Aruna Dindane and Nenad Jestrovic.

Darcheville double
Two goals from Jean-Claude Darcheville, the second deep into added time, gave the French side, visibly low on confidence, some reward for their efforts. But Anderlecht never looked likely to miss out on Friday's draw for the last 16.

Dindane delight
The home side opened the scoring on an icy pitch just before the half-hour mark, Walter Baseggio teeing up Dindane for a crisp right-footed shot, and from there on to half-time they cruised through the game.

Jestrovic beauty
With Bordeaux's Christophe Dugarrry notably agitated after the interval, the visitors began to bustle a little more, but had the stuffing knocked out of them by Jestrovic's wonder goal on 68 minutes. The midfield player received the ball ten metres into the French side's half and turned before firing a specatcular 25-metre effort past Ulrich Ramé in the bordeaux goal.

Super substitution
Darcheville's introduction for Pauleta proved to be visiting coach Elie Baup's best decision, the striker linking up with Dugarry and Brazilian Savio respectively for his double. But it came too late and Baup said: "Anderlecht made it very difficult. OK, we played out a 2-2 draw here and it is a good result away in Europe - but the home game was very tough."

Good day Broos
Anderlecht coach Hugo Broos said: "My team respected what I asked them to do and tried to play good football on a difficult pitch. We deserved qualification but we were not concentrating in the last few minutes because were 4-0 up - I am very sad that we had a draw but very satisfied with the qualification. Playing five at the back proved to be good - in Europe you don't have to open the door."
