Bordeaux 3 – St. Etienne 1 (Ligue 1, February 14, 2010) Wendel created the first goal for Bordeaux in the 13th minute, a header from future Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh. The Brazilian then shot powerfully home 17 minutes later before Bakary Sako pulled one back for fifth-bottom St. Etienne with a free-kick from 25-yards on the stroke of halftime. (First half highlights here.) St Etienne dominated possession in the second half and wasted a host of chances, including a penalty miss by Gonzalo Bergessio in the 71st minute after Chamakh handled. Wendel made them pay when he converted a cross by substitute Yoan Gouffran with 11 minutes left.
