Bordeaux twice waste lead for 2-2 draw with Saint-Etienne

IANS logoIANS 06-05-2017

Bordeaux were three points adrift fouth-ranked Lyon, who were awarded a victory due to Bastia fan violence a day earlier. Saint-Etienne remained seventh, five points shy of Marseille with a game in hand, reports Xinhua news agency.

Both sides had the opportunity of clinching a berth in next season's Europa League. On Friday, the visitors built a lead on Adam Ounas' penalty in the 42nd minute, before Saint-Etienne tied the game at 1-1 shortly before the interval, thanks to Robert Beric's second goal in three league games.

Gaetan Laborde put Bordeaux up for the second time in the 50th minute with a shot from close range, while being denied again by Vincent Pajot's successful attempt later.

On Saturday, defending champions Paris Saint-Germain, trailing leaders Monaco by three points, will host bottom side Bastia. Monaco, having played one less game, will visit another relegation-threatened side Nancy.
