Live Commentary

  • FT in Bordeaux - PSG go top of Ligue 1 ahead of Monaco and Marseille, with the latter two in action later. A strong performance from Blanc's side as they turn their attention to the Champions League and Olympiakos on Tuesday.
  • 90' + 3'
    FT: Bordeaux 0-2 PSG (Matuidi, Moura)
  • 90' + 2'
    Cross in from Nicolas Maurice-Belay on the left towards Jussie, but it evades the Brazilian. Even late on, they've failed to really test Salvatore Sirigu.
  • 90'
    Into stoppage time - and we have three signalled here at the Stade Chaban-Delmas. In truth, this game was over a long time ago.
  • 88'
    Coman looks bright in his brief cameo, and wins a corner for his efforts. Played in short towards Motta, but PSG are just comfortable in playing it all the way back as the clock winds down.
  • 86'
    Stat: Tonight was Lucas Moura's first goal for PSG, his first club goal since Sao Paulo's win over Tigre in December in the Copa Sudamericana and his second in total this year.
  • 84'
    Entering the final stages of tonight's Ligue 1 encounter. Bordeaux have been upstaged by a ruthless PSG side who've really come together in the last 15-20 minutes.
  • 82'
    SubstitutionLucas Kingsley Coman
  • 82'
    Half-chance for Cavani seconds after coming on as Coman's speculative ball into the box just narrowly evades the Uruguay international. Bordeaux have been thoroughly outplayed in the last few minutes.
  • 81'
    SubstitutionZlatan Ibrahimovic Edinson Cavani
  • 80'
    Yellow Card Marco Verratti
  • 80'
    SUBSTITUTION - PSG: Ibrahimovic and Lucas Moura off for Kingsley Coman an Edinson Cavani. Moura man of the match with his stunning performance.
  • 79'
    And Ibrahimovic has his chance now! Defence open after Digne's pass, but Ibrahimovic is forced wide after Carrasso races off his line, and hits the side netting.
  • 78'
    Rabiot really pushing for a 3rd here as his shot goes over the bar after a decent build-up. Ibrahimovic gives him a stern look, since he was open!
  • 76'
    Corner again from Thiago Motta, and it's once again far too close to Cedric Carrasso as the goalkeeper claims the ball. Meanwhile, Diabate is off for Hadi Sacko, with Saivet replaced by Jussie.
  • 75'
    SubstitutionCheick Tidiane Diabaté Hadi Sacko
  • 75'
    Lucas Moura has had a stunning evening. Fantastic ball from Verratti to release Moura on the far side. One pass towards Ibrahimovic who attempts the lob, but Carrasso away with the fine stop.
  • 74'
    SubstitutionHenri Saivet Jussiê
  • 74'
    Rabiot with the shot from distance, but it sails wide of Carrasso's goal. PSG in cruise control now, in the final stages.
  • 73'
    Nicolas Maurice-Belay gets his first meaningful touch on the ball now. Couple of stepovers, before unleashing a left-footed effort which is charged down by the defender.
  • 72'
    SubstitutionHervin Ongenda Adrien Rabiot
  • 71'
    SUBSTITUTION - PSG: Rabiot comes on for Ongenda in the final stages. Rabiot scored his first L1 goal for the club in his last outing v Guingamp.
  • 70'
    IBRAHIMOVIC! Fantastic save from Carrasso, as he performs a double save to keep the game at 2-0. Digne on the rebound effort, but he's denied the left-back a debut goal. Great goalkeeping.
  • 69'
    Yellow Card Hervin Ongenda
  • 69'
    Moura again on the right, gets the ball in towards Matuidi, whose shot is blocked by Sane. Ongenda on the follow-up, but he fails to get a clean strike, as he stumbles in attack. PSG readying a substitution.
  • 68'
    And still Bordeaux continue to toil at the back, as Moura races down the right wing, but he's kept in check by the formidable Lucas Orban once more.
  • 66'
    Substitution for FCGB: Diego Rolan, who has had a poor evening, comes off for Nicolas Maurice Belay.
  • 65'
    SubstitutionD. Rolan Nicolas Maurice-Belay
  • 65'
    PSG 2-0 up, and you'd be a foolish (or seriously rich) man to put money on Bordeaux to recover in this game. It's been a poor defensive evening from the 2009 champions tonight.
  • 64'
    Assist Marco Verratti
  • 64'
    Goal Lucas
    GOAL: Bordeaux 0-2 PSG - LUCAS MOURA! Atrocious offside trap from the hosts as Verratti finds Lucas Moura in acres of space. Bearing down on goal, Carrasso misjudges the ball and thinks he will square, opening up the entire goal for Moura to tap in. Stunning goalkeeping that....
  • 62'
    Corner taken by Thiago Motta, and it's easy for Carrasso to reclaim the ball. PSG still pressing, looking for their second as Bordeaux fail to keep the ball.
  • 61'
    Ongenda shows good feet to find Lucas Moura on the other side. The Brazilian highlights a few tricks and turns to bamboozle his opponent, but Sane slide tackles the ball out of play. Corner.
  • 60'
    We pass the hour mark at the Chaban-Delmas, as PSG lead Bordeaux 1-0, and appear comfortable. Meanwhile, Diabate races forward on the far side, but is charged down by Digne.
  • 58'
    CARRASSO! Fine stop from the Bordeaux goalkeeper as Ibrahimovic unleashes a teasing effort from distance. Parries the shot away in time.
  • 57'
    Punishing high-tempo football here, but none of that in the last few moments as PSG are content to just keep the ball and out-pass their opponents. They're looking good value for their lead too.
  • 55'
    The ball goes out of play as Ongenda receives treatment. It was a late challenge from Mariano that caused the problem.
  • 54'
    They're droppng like flies out there. Diabate holding onto the ball and keeping Bordeaux in position despite Ongenda clutching his knee on the halfway line. The crowd, of course, urging FCGB to continue.
  • 53'
    Should be a penalty that, Thiago Silva handles the ball during an aerial challenge with the PSG captain but it goes unnoticed. Lucky! Good spell for the hosts now.
  • 52'
    Diabate! Fantastic intervention from Alex as the slightest of touches deflects the ball away from under the feet of Diabate, as Silva concedes the corner.
  • 51'
    Bordeaux pressing, but PSG pass their way out of trouble. Van der Wiel comes away with the ball, linking up with Ibrahimovic, who fails to spot the Dutchman making a run on the overlap as the move falters.
  • 49'
    Andre Biyogho Poko limping slightly after a lunging challenge from Marco Verratti, but the midfielder should be fine to continue. PSG embark on their impressive passing game once more.
  • 47'
    Sane felled under the challenge of Ibrahimovic, as Bordeaux win a free-kick. Bordeaux much more conservative during the opening stages of the second half.
  • 47'
    If Paris Saint-Germain win this evening, they go top of the table, a point clear of Monaco, and two ahead of Marseille who have a game in hand. PSG v Monaco is on 22nd September, Marseille v PSG on 6th October.
  • 46'
    And we're underway in the second period. PSG get us going attacking from left to right, in their change strip of all white.
  • The sides are out for the second half. What impact can Francis Gillot's men have in this second half?
  • HALF-TIME: Bordeaux 0-1 PSG: Matuidi's goal on the half hour separates the sides. The hosts have been poor for large periods, with PSG comfortable in possession and at the back. More to come in 15 minutes.
  • 45' + 2'
    HALF-TIME: Girondins de Bordeaux 0-1 Paris Saint-Germain (Matuidi 30')
  • 45' + 1'
    Poor decision from Saivet who has a chance after a loose ball into the box. Takes it around the defender between van der Wiel and Thiago Silva, but the duo combine to get the ball away. Should've at least had a shot.
  • 45'
    TWO added minutes signalled at the end of the first half at Stade Chaban-Delmas.
  • 44'
    Free-kick awarded to Bordeaux after a foul at the other end. Taken by Obraniak but far too close to the goalkeeper.
  • 43'
    OBRANIAK! First chance of note from the hosts, as the Pole strikes low towards Sirigu. The Italian does spill it, but recovers at the second attempt. Unlucky.
  • 42'
    Ball possession statistics - PSG 60% ahead of Bordeaux's 40%. The visitors have been on top since Matuidi's goal on the half-hour.
  • 41'
    Yellow Card Ludovic Obraniak
  • 41'
    Matuidi upended by Poko, but the midfielder gets his pass away towards Digne. Overhit though, as the U20 World Cup winner fails to reach there in time. Coming towards the end of the first half.
  • 40'
    N'Guemo fouled as Bordeaux press up the field in search for the equaliser, but the referee waves play on. Digne finds Matuidi, but Obraniak is booked after a late foot onto Motta.
  • 39'
    Lucas Moura continues to dazzle on the far side. Lovely touch and control. Drags the ball between Orban and Saivet to try and get into the box, but he's felled. Saivet has been poor so far. Free-kick in a dangerous position.
  • 37'
    Orban with the throw-in, but poor movement from les Girondins allows PSG to reclaim possession. Verratti feeds Ongenda, who frees Moura on the wing. Brilliant play from the visitors.
  • 35'
    Lovely ball over the top from Moura, but it's dealt with in time by Ludovic Sane. Bordeaux have a corner to deal with with Motta going over to take.
  • 33'
    Henrique - already on a yellow - is reprimanded for a slap across the face on Ibrahimovic during an aerial challenge. Ibrahimovic is livid, but the Brazilian remains on the pitch. Ibra revenge to come?
  • 32'
    Motta down and requires some medical attention, but the Italy international is fine to continue.
  • 31'
    That's PSG all over. On the back foot initially, but improve as the game goes on, before one moment of magic breaks the deadlock. Superb Ibrahimovic pass for Matuidi's goal.
  • 30'
    Goal Blaise Matuidi
    GOAL! Bordeaux 0-1 PSG - Matuidi breaks the deadlock! Fantastic work from Ibrahimovic who recovers from his malaise and produces such clever play. Matuidi with the powerful run, but his initial shot is saved by Carrasso, who spills, but the ball rolls over the line in time!
  • 28'
    Thiago Silva with the clearance away, but Matuidi is dispossessed by Mariano on the overlap. Bordeaux slow to capitalise on the error, as the France international makes amends with the tackle.
  • 27'
    Verratti restarts the Parisien attack, as Digne's speculative cross is blocked off by Rolan. Matuidi attempts a one-two with Ibrahimovic, but the former is ruled offside.
  • 25'
    Ibrahimovic having a rough start to the match. Finds an inch of space, but struggles with the shot which flies wide.
  • 24'
    N'Guemo supplies a fine pass out wide for Bordeaux to utilise on the wings. Orban emerges on the overlap, but possession changes hands. PSG fast on the counter, with Ongenda giving chase, but Henrique tracks back to clear the ball.
  • 22'
    IBRAHIMOVIC! He's scooped it well, well over the bar. So uncharacteristic of the Swede, as the Bordeaux fans revel in glee in the stands. Horrendous set-piece.
  • 21'
    Yellow card for Henrique after a cynical challenge just 25 metres outside of the penalty box. Ibrahimovic over this one, as the tension builds.
  • 20'
    Yellow Card Henrique
  • 20'
    Mariano! Poor pass. Great chance for the hosts on the right hand side as the wing-back capitalises on some space. Evades the challenge of Alex on the slide, but a cross first time might've been useful. Instead, he cuts in and dribbles, but PSG charge him down.
  • 19'
    Good tackle from Poko as Ibrahimovic is dispossessed on the ball, with Ongenda ahead of him in what was a promising move. Bordeaux on the charge at the other end with Obraniak.
  • 18'
    Tempo drops slightly, as Diego Rolan moves deep to get involved in the approach play. A fantastic long ball up for Cheikh Diabate to give chase, and he wins the aerial challenge with Alex.
  • 16'
    Brilliant pass from Thiago Motta out wide for Lucas to chase, as it evades the path of Orban. Ibrahimovic attempts to get into the action, but the move breaks up. Bordeaux start from the back.
  • 14'
    PSG start tonight with 18-year-old star Hervin Ongenda, who impacted greatly as a substitute in the two sides' clash in Gabon last year. Here - he makes a great run off the ball, and does well to free up space for Digne on his left.
  • 13'
    Lucas Orban struggles with Lucas Moura on the far side, but the Argentine defender recovers to get the ball away in time. The Brazilian will be a threat on the flanks.
  • 12'
    Dangerous ball in from the right as Alex and Bordeaux GK Cedric Carrasso fight for the loose ball. The goalkeeper takes a tumble, but is awarded a free-kick.
  • 10'
    PSG's first foray into the opposition box, and it nearly pays off. Delicate pass from Ibrahimovic on the right towards Lucas Moura, but the defender gets it away in time.
  • 8'
    Pretty strong start from the 2009 Ligue 1 champions as Obraniak and Mariano attempt to combine, but the Polish midfielder fails to retrieve the ball in time. They're on top, nonetheless at the moment.
  • 6'
    It's just not going Digne's way. He clutches his arm again after being upended by Mariano's flying tackle. Referee Gautier gives him a talking to instead this time. Physical start.
  • 5'
    Replays show that Digne has been floored by the ball, but the pain was caused by an awkward fall. Maxwell warming up on the touchline just in case.
  • 4'
    Andre Poko slams a shot over, as Bordeaux begin to push forward in numbers, but there's a player down here but les Parisiens continue to burst forward despite their own player going down.
  • 3'
    Very jittery opening from the Parisiens, as Thiago Silva appeals for calm in the midst of a strong opening from les Girondins. Laurent Blanc back in the Delmas dugout for the first time since leaving his title-winning FCGB side in 2010.
  • 2'
    Superb ball up from the start, and headed away by Lucas Digne who is keen not to make any mistakes on his debut. Corner drifted in, and Andre Poko is unsuccessful with his attempt.
  • 1'
    KICK-OFF! But there's a false start, the referee stops play, and starts again from the middle. But finally underway in Bordeaux, and IMMEDIATELY Bordeaux win a corner.
  • The sides are out at the Chaban-Delmas as the atmosphere builds. Tonight's referee is Antony Gautier.
  • These two sides have already met this season in the Trophee des Champions last month, played in Libreville, Gabon. PSG prevailed 2-1 thanks to late goals, earning Laurent Blanc his first trophy as PSG boss.
  • GIRONDINS DE BORDEAUX : Carrasso (c) - Henrique, Sané, Orban, Mariano - Obraniak, N'Guemo, Poko, Rolan - Saivet, Diabaté.Substitutes : Olimpa, Bréchet, Poundje, Ben Khalfallah, Sacko, Maurice-Belay, Jussie.

  • Bordeaux meanwhile start with South American duo Lucas Orban and Diego Rolan for the visit of PSG. They lost captain Jaroslav Plasil during the transfer window.
  • TEAM NEWS: Edinson Cavani will start on the bench tonight, as Laurent Blanc alters his side slightly. Maxwell loses out to Lucas Digne who makes his league debut for the champions, as does young 18-year-old starlet Hervin Ongenda.
  • Bordeaux meanwhile are hoping to claim a scalp after a below average beginning to the 2013-14 season. They lost 2-1 to Saint-Etienne last out, and have just one win under their belts this season, ahead of a Europa League clash against Frankfurt in midweek coming up.
  • It was a quiet end to the transfer window for Laurent Blanc's side who come into the game on the back of a tight 2-0 victory over Guingamp two weeks ago. Momo Sissoko and Mathieu Bodmer were the exits on deadline day as PSG failed with late enquiries for Juan Mata and Mesut Ozil.
  • I'm Mohammed Ali and I'll be bringing you live commentary from the Aquitaine region over the next two hours. Paris Saint-Germain can go top for the first time this season with victory over a Bordeaux side who've stuttered lately.
  • Good evening and welcome to live commentary of tonight's Ligue 1 encounter from the Stade Chaban-Delmas as Paris Saint-Germain travel to Bordeaux for Friday night football!
