Latest update : 2009-05-12

An easy 3-0 victory over Sochaux made Bordeaux a serious contender to the French league title. The club has now the same number as the leader Marseille, earlier Paris lost at home against Rennes and stayed fourth.

REUTERS - Girondins Bordeaux moved level on points with Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Marseille with a 3-0 victory against struggling Sochaux on Sunday.
