Bordeaux, a worrying poverty without its star Malcom, sank in large widths in front of Strasbourg, promoted sparkling the momentum of his feat against Paris (0-3), Friday night, opening the 17th day of L1.

It must have been the Christmas match, it turned into hell for the men of Gourvennec. On a relegation rhythm since the beginning of autumn, we do not see two days from the end which could reverse their dangerous spiral.

One can even wonder if the success obtained ten days ago on Saint-Étienne (3-0) was not an accident of course in their slow agony.

The next few hours, the next few days could be hot on the Haillan side, especially since the divorce is well and truly consumed with the Ultramarines, their loyal supporters who dropped them to 2-0 for the Alsatians, chanting “We want a team “,” Gourvennec resignation “before deserting at the break down their turn south.

Unrecognizable, without spring or imagination, they have been exceeded in all sectors by a Racing where everything has been bathing for a week. The heroes of the Meinau were not tired or so it was not so much their grip was pregnant on a part during which everything smiled.

– Otavio, the symbol –

Now with 21 points in the wallet, they have done half the road to maintain that they should reach without concern with individuals such as Da Costa, Aholou and especially Terrier, author of a third exceptional goal.

Who says Christmas match, said gifts and Bordeaux has offered some, including Otavio. We had not even played for two minutes that on a failed control of the Brazilian, Terrier recovered and served Bahoken who, after eliminating Jovanovic from a large bridge, was going to deceive Costil a cross shot (0-1).

Not enough to reassure orphan guests of Malcom, fragile at kickoff, feverish thereafter, including Otavio who lost all foothold between badly controlled aggressiveness, bad choice, symbol of the Bordeaux of the day. Not far from collecting a second yellow card, his exit before the break was experienced as a relief.

Except that his replacement Sankharé was signal input by a bad gesture giving an ideal free-kick to shoot for a southpaw. Attendant Lienart took care of the sentence and cleaned the skylight of Costil (38).

We were expecting a revolt Gironde, it could have taken shape just after but Mendy missed his recovery alone against the goal on a De Preville service.

After the break, without popular support, the Girondins have tried to return but the disorder reigned in their animation, quite the opposite of Strasbourg which was twice to weigh down the note by Terrier (49) then Bahoken (52).

It was finally the international hope on fire that was going to make everyone agree at the price of a rush of 70 meters where his speed eliminated all the local rearguard and his coolness was played Costil impotent (0 -3, 64).
