Rolan strike sees Bordeaux past Nantes


Paris (AFP) – Bordeaux edged a tight encounter with Nantes 1-0 on Sunday at the Stade Matmut-Atlantique to register their second successive home win of the new Ligue 1 season.

Uruguayan striker Diego Rolan tapped in the only goal of the game in the 31st minute from  close-season signing Jeremy Menez’s cross.

Jocelyn Gourvennec’s hosts bounced back from a comprehensive 4-1 defeat at Toulouse last week.

On Saturday, last season’s runners-up Lyon were stunned 4-2 at newly-promoted Dijon, with their problems compounded by the sight of key striker Alexandre Lacazette hobbling off injured.

Later on Sunday, defending champions Paris Saint-Germain head to Monaco in a clash of the other two French sides in this season’s Champions League.
