Solid Bordeaux march on

Club Brugge 0-1 Bordeaux (agg: 1-4) FC Girondins de Bordeaux surprise Club Brugge KV in Belgium.

A late goal from Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh allowed FC Girondins de Bordeaux to defeat Club Brugge KV and claim a place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.

Impressive achievement
The size of Bordeaux's achievement is emphasised by the fact that the last time Brugge lost at home was to AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League back in October and since then they have beaten AFC Ajax and BV Borussia Dortmund. It was only their second defeat in front of their own fans in 19 matches.

Chamakh header
Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, the home side did, however, create the first chance of the keenly-contested encounter, Bengt Sæternes directing a header wide in the ninth minute but too often the Belgian side were second best as the visitors mixed industry and invention to consistently positive effect.

Riera chance
In an intense but often stuttering game, Bordeaux almost went ahead in the 17th minute when midfield player Albert Riera latched on to a long ball over the top and crossed into the box for the impressive Chamakh, whose header rocketed over the bar.

Sæternes miss
The midfield tussle was fierce with both teams struggling to dominate but Chamakh posed problems every time he was in possession with his deft touch and powerful running. In the 37th minute, he was through on goal only to be deemed fractionally offside. Nevertheless, the most presentable chance of the half fell to Sæternes, who scooped Gert Verheyen's clever flick-on over the bar with the goal at his mercy on the cusp of half-time.

Attacking intent
Brugge attacked with intent after the break, knowing they would need to produce an outstanding display to score the two unanswered goals they needed to overturn the first-leg deficit but Bordeaux remained solid, matching their opponents in all departments. Sæternes began the second half as he ended the first, failing to tuck in a goal from close range when well positioned in the box.

Brugge denied
Brugge then mounted wave on wave of attack but too many of them were via the long-ball route and the Bordeaux backline remained alert to the aerial danger, repeatedly heading or hooking clear.

Clinching goal
Inevitably, as the half wore on, the counterattacking opportunities presented themselves and it was left to Chamakh to deservedly settle the encounter and seal his team's place in the quarter-finals. He latched on to a well-weighted through-ball from midfield and showed poise to round goalkeeper Dany Verlinden and score.
