PSG Slip To Bordeaux Defeat

By  |  0 Comments

Bordeaux grabbed a last-gasp goal through Diego Rolan to claim a 3-2 home win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Rolan netted with two minutes left, after PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had equalised twice to cancel out strikes from Lamine Sane and Wahbi Khazri, leaving the visitors empty handed.

PSG centre back David Luiz, who scored in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea that saw the French champions qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday, sustained a thigh injury and was replaced in the 37th minute by Zoumana Camara.

But Ibrahimovic, sent off in the first half at Stamford Bridge, found something to cheer five minutes after the break, scoring from close range after Javier Pastore’s through pass.

Bordeaux went 2-1 up in the 70th when Khazri headed past Salvatore Sirigu, prompting PSG coach Laurent Blanc to replace midfielder Yohan Cabaye with striker Edinson Cavani.

PSG’s Ezequiel Lavezzi was then brought down in the box and Sweden striker Ibrahimovic converted the resulting penalty five minutes from time to seemingly salvage a point.

Bordeaux, sixth with 48 points from 29 games, went ahead in their match in the 18th minute when Sane beat Thiago Silva to head home.
