Reims 1 – Bordeaux 2- Les Girondins cruise past The Red and Whites at home

Reims vs. Bordeaux

Reims succumbed to a home defeat against Bordeaux at the Stade Auguste Delaune on Sunday. Reims were hoping to get something from this game, following a previous defeat to Paris Saint-Germain. Bordeaux were looking to extend their winning run after a 3-0 victory against RC Lens. Following the final whistle at the end of the last game of the Ligue 1 season, Reims are in 14th place on the table and has 42 points while Bordeaux sit in 12th with 45 points after 38 matches.

The Red and Whites started strongly in the first half, thanks to a goal from El Bilal Toure, 15 minutes in. However, their lead was short lived, as Yacine Adli equalised for Les Girondins just before half-time, to take a 1-1 lead into half time.

Bordeaux continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, with Enock Kwateng finding the net, 58 minutes in, leaving the final score at 2-1.

For Reims, Dereck Kutesa, Arber Zeneli, Kaj Sierhuis and Fode Doucoure, came on for Moussa Doumbia, Nathanael Mbuku, El Bilal Toure and Thomas Foket. Bordeaux replaced Nicolas De Preville, Tom Lacoux, Hwang Ui-Jo, Toma Basic and Maxime Poundje for Remi Oudin, Amadou Traore, Sekou Mara, Issouf Sissokho and Mehdi Zerkane.
