Ligue 1 Review: Bordeaux 1-1 Paris Saint-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic added another goal to his season’s count as PSG stretched their record points tally with a point at Bordeaux.

The Swedish international and club captain scored his 36th league goal of the campaign just before the hour mark, meaning he is now just one goal short of Carlos Bianchi’s record.

Les Parisians could have taken the lead just minutes after kick-off but Adrien Rabiot’s lob missed the target by a small margin.

Lucas Moura also had a golden chance to break the deadlock for the visitors but his weak attempt from close range was a comfortable save for Jerome Prior.

Bordeaux came close in the first half as well; Cheick Diabate’s effort was just off target before Kevin Trapp was called into action to save Jaroslav Plasil’s shot.

PSG’s Trapp was called upon once again just before the half-time break as he kept out Diego Rolan’s attempt.

The breakthrough came in the 59th-minute; Angel Di Maria provided a number of assists against Gazélec last weekend and he was the supplier in this match too. The Argentine delivered a great cross to the back post and Ibrahimovic was there to head home.

Bordeaux fought back just seven minutes later however as Nicolas Pallois equalised after capitalising on some hesitant PSG defending following a corner.

As the game drew to a close, the champions nearly stole all three points but Moura’s effort was cleared off the line by Bordeaux’s goal scorer Pallois.

The only change in the Ligue 1 table was that Les Girondins climbed to 10th above Montpellier.

PSG have two games remaining this season; facing Nantes at the Parc des Princes before Marseille in the cup final the following week, while Bordeaux end their season with a trip to Caen.
