Bordeaux star Diarra: Lyon win could be catalyst

Bordeaux matchwinner Alou Diarra believes the 1-0 victory over Lyon could be the catalyst his team need as they go in search of a first Ligue 1 title in a decade.

Diarra's 43rd-minute winner was the difference between the two sides at the Stade Chaban-Delmas last night as Les Girondins climbed above Les Gones into second place, two points behind leaders Marseille.

It was Bordeaux's first home triumph over Lyon in the league since the 1998-99 campaign, and they went on to win the title that season.

Diarra believes the class of 2009 could repeat those exploits, especially given the confidence last night's result will bring to the team.

"A victory over Lyon is always one to savour because they are a very difficult team to beat," said Diarra, who quit Les Gones to join Bordeaux in the summer of 2007.

"It proves we have progressed compared to last season. It also sets up an exciting end to the season, and there could still be some surprises in store.

"Our ambition is still there. On the pitch, we have proved we are eyeing the title and not just happy to be shoulder to shoulder with Lyon and Marseille.

"I think it's a strong sign. We have to continue this positive run and fight until the end."

Bordeaux have now won five matches on the trot in the league and they have the easiest run-in of the top three.

Four of their last six games are against teams in the league's bottom seven.

But Les Girondins president Jean-Louis Triaud admits Marseille are going to be hard to hunt down.

"Marseille are impressing me," said Triaud. "What they did at Lorient (OM won 2-1 there yesterday), coming from behind to win three days after a difficult European match, is an unmistakable sign.

"I want to tell my players to play right to the death. It was easy to be motivated against the champions of France but we have to show the same spirit against every team."
