French Cup: Bordeaux thrash Vannes to lift trophy

Bordeaux ran riot at the Stade de France to thrash Ligue 2 side Vannes OC and claim their third Coupe de la Ligue crown in emphatic style.

In what amounted to the heaviest defeat in a final in the competition's 15-year history, Les Girondins scored all four of their goals in the first half, through Wendel, Marc Planus, Yoan Gouffran and Yoann Gourcuff.

It was men-against-boys stuff in a one-sided showpiece, with Bordeaux displaying the kind of form that could see them complete a league-and-cup double come the end of the season.

Winners of this trophy in 2002 and 2007, the Gironde club join Paris St Germain in becoming the competition's most successful team since its inception in the 1994/95 season.

It also allowed highly-rated Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc to pick up his first silverware in management.

Vannes had ousted three Ligue 1 teams to get to the final but the might of Bordeaux was too big a mountain to climb.

However, despite this hefty defeat, the Brittany outfit - currently 10th in the second division - should be proud of their run in the competition.

Founded in 1998 and having only turned professional this season, this was easily the biggest day in their short history.

They were looking to become only the second team to win the competition while playing outside the top flight, after Gueugnon in 2000, but it had all turned sour in Paris tonight by the 13th minute.

Bordeaux, coming into the match on a run of five successive league wins which has left them just two points off leaders Marseille, shot out of the blocks and punished Vannes' naive, schoolboy defending.

Wendel opened the scoring in the third minute when, in acres of space, he chested down Diego Placente's long pass and expertly lobbed goalkeeper Christophe Revel from 15 yards.

The Brazilian midfielder, who hobbled off midway through the first half with a knee injury, turned provider seven minutes later, his corner flying through a mass of bodies and bundled home by Planus from four yards.

Worse was to follow for Vannes three minutes later, Gourcuff whipping in a free-kick and Gouffran getting in front of Revel to glance home.

Often late in the tackle and slack in possession, the occasion got to Vannes and they were taught a lesson in a first half that passed by after those opening goals without major incident until Gourcuff struck in the 39th minute.

Some great interplay between Marouane Chamakh, Gouffran and Gourcuff ended with the latter stroking home the finish, with the aid of a deflection, into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Vannes improved in the second half, and even put together some good attacking moves, but the damage had been done by then.

They still needed Revel to produce a couple of smart saves to deny substitutes Pierre Ducasse and David Bellion as Bordeaux threatened to add more goals.
