Ligue 1: Bordeaux brush off PSG challenge

Yoann Gourcuff scored a wonderful individual effort and set up another as Bordeaux moved to within a point of Ligue 1 leaders Lyon with a rout of Paris St Germain tonight.

The France playmaker enhanced his growing reputation with a superb display at a freezing Stade Chaban-Delmas, whipping in a free-kick that was nodded home by Souleymane Diawara in the 10th minute and then scoring a brilliant solo strike 19 minutes from time to make it 3-0.

Those goals sandwiched Fernando Cavenaghi's 12th goal of the season and Fernando added another late on as Les Girondins won their fourth match on the spin to climb into second place and on the shoulder of the stuttering reigning champions.

The first half could not have gone better for Bordeaux, who bossed possession and were far more incisive going forward.

PSG forward Ludovic Giuly sidefooted over in the eighth minute but that was the visitors' only chance of the half.

All the action was at the other end, Bordeaux taking the lead two minutes later when Gourcuff swung in a devilish cross for Diawara, who stole in through a crowd of players to plant home a header.

Jussie then slid an angled shot just wide after being fed by Marouane Chamakh but Les Girondins' second arrived in the 35th minute.

Mathieu Chalme's inch-perfect diagonal ball from the centre circle beat PSG centre-half Zoumana Camara and found Cavenaghi, whose sublime, first-time half-volley with his left foot found the net at the near post.

The Argentinian should have made it 13 for the campaign just before half-time but he spooned his effort over when free 12 yards out.

The capital club came back into it in the second half and Stephane Sessegnon volleyed a shot against the post just after the hour mark.

Gourcuff brought the house down with his goal, spinning round Sylvain Armand with a drag-back and deceiving Sammy Traore with a deft piece of footwork before rifling home a finish with the outside of his right foot.

Fernando garnished the scoreline with a close-range fourth at the death as PSG fell to easily their heaviest loss of the season.
