Bordeaux keep their triple dreams alive by dumping Le Mans out the Coupe De La Ligue

Le Mans 2 – Bordeaux 3 (Coupe De La Ligue, January 26, 2010) Bordeaux fell behind after just five minutes of the rescheduled last 16 tie when Anthony Le Tallec side-stepped two defenders to score for the home side. The visitors then took control with goals by Yoan Gouffran and France playmaker Yoann Gourcuff in the 14th and 36th minutes. Le Mans levelled two minutes later through Joao Paulo Andrade but Bordeaux sealed victory when Jaroslav Plasil netted from close range five minutes into the second half after a Marouane Chamakh centre. Le Mans had captain Joao Paulo sent off in stoppage time for a foul on Gourcuff.
