Result: Bordeaux pegged back by Rennes

Bordeaux draw 2-2 with Rennes in Ligue 1, despite leading 2-0 with half-an-hour to play.

Bordeaux have been pegged back from 2-0 up to draw 2-2 against Rennes in their Ligue 1 match.

Rennes got off to a decent start and could have gone ahead as early as the third minute, but Ola Toivonen's shot from close range went wide of the post.

The hosts quickly got themselves on top of the game and twice came close in the first 15 minutes. Guillaume Hoarau headed over, before Marc Planus's effort was kept out by Benoit Costil.

Chances were still few and far between, but with just over five minutes of the half remaining, Bordeaux went ahead. Guillaume Hoarau's shot after he was played through by Diego Rolan found the bottom corner for the lead.

Then on the hour mark Bordeaux scored a second for what looked to be a comfortable lead, as Rolan fired in from close range having been found by Henri Saivet.

However, just three minutes later the away side were level. Abdoulaye Doucoure finished low, before Romain Alessandrini managed to level matters in just another four minutes with a tap-in.

Despite the three goals in six minutes, there were to be no more as Bordeaux had to settle for the point.
