Josh Maja - Bordeaux
The Nigeria forwards helped the Girondins end their two-game winless run on Tuesday

Samuel Kalu assisted Josh Maja in opening his goal account for 2019-20 season as Bordeaux defeated Dijon 2-0 in the French League Cup.

The Nigeria duo started for Paulo Sousa's side at the Matmut Atlantique on Tuesday and did not take long to combine to open the scoring.

Kalu provided the cross for Maja to head in in the eighth minute. The effort was the 20-year-old's first goal of the season and it separated the teams until Nicolas de Preville doubled the lead in stoppage time.

The 20-year-old was in action for 84 minutes while Kalu was on parade from start to finish but he was shown a yellow card late in the encounter.

Bordeaux have progressed to the next round of the French League Cup where they await their next opponent.

Meanwhile, Kalu and Maja will be hoping to continue their strike partnership when Bordeaux host Nantes for Sunday's Ligue 1 game.
