BLOODIED BORDEAUX SEEKS LYON SALVATION

By NBF NEWS

Bordeaux approach the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Lyon on Wednesday looking to salvage something from a season that is threatening to unravel before their eyes.

Three successive defeats have seriously dented their three-pronged quest for silverware, with the 3-1 first-leg loss in Lyon last week bookended by defeat against Marseille in the League Cup final and a surprise 2-1 loss at home to Nancy on Saturday that saw Bordeaux slip from the Ligue 1 summit.

Les Girondins now lie fourth in the French top flight, albeit with two games in hand, while a mounting injury list has left gaping holes in Laurent Blanc's previously imperious defence.

Goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso urged his teammates to 'take a good look at themselves in the mirror' after the defeat to Nancy and Blanc conceded that the reigning French champions have lost their way.
