Bordeaux drop into the relegation zone after being held to a 0-0 draw by Reims in Ligue 1.

Bordeaux dropped into the relegation zone after they were held to a goalless draw by Reims at Stade Chaban-Deimas in Ligue 1 on Wednesday night.

The hosts started the better of the two sides and had a chance to take the lead early on, but Nicolas Maurice-Belay sent a 25-yard strike sailing over the crossbar.

The away side retaliated when Gaetan Courtet ran onto a long ball just inside the penalty area, but he could only fire his first-time effort narrowly wide.

Bordeaux had the ball in the net shortly after the break, but Jussie was adjudged to have been in an offside position when slotting home.

Cheick Diabate had an opportunity late on to win the match after connecting with a powerful header from a Gregory Sertic corner, but Kossi Agassa was able to gather the ball at the second attempt.

The draw means that Bordeaux slip into the bottom three, while Reims sit comfortably in 10th.
