A sole goal for Yoan Gouffran gave Bordeaux the win over former manager Elie Baup. Baup’s team created very little, which wasn’t helped by OM’s lack of recognised strikers in the squad. With Remy, Gignac and Jordan Ayew all out it was left to Andre Ayew to lead the line with Raspentino and more surprisingly reserve team striker Apruzesse, the only support on the bench.
The goal came early in the 2nd half, with both teams cancelling each other out prior to this. Tremoulinas jinked his way down the left wing all too easily before crossing for Gouffran who slid in ahead of the OM defence to beat Mandanda at the near post.
The defeat was made even worse by the unnecessary sending off of Lucas Mendes in injury time as he brought down Ben Khalfallah who was almost clean through on goal (not shown in the highlights). Marseille’s abysmal record in Bordeaux continues, having last won against le Girondins in 1978.
