Cheick Diabate's second-half goal sees Bordeaux get the better of Bastia 1-0 at home in Ligue 1.

Bordeaux have registered a 1-0 victory over Bastia at home in Ligue 1.

Both sides made a slow start to the game with the first chance coming only after 19 minutes, Diego Rolan watching his header from close range getting saved.

Moments later his Bordeaux teammate Nicolas Maurice-Belay was also denied by Mickael Landreau between the Bastia posts.

The hosts continued to dominate proceedings as the first half progressed, Rolan heading Gregory Sertic's corner just high and then having his shot saved.

The pattern resumed after the break, as Ludovic Obraniak was unlucky not to break the deadlock in the 54th minute when he shot against the bar from outside the box.

Three minutes later Bordeaux surged ahead as Cheick Diabate turned in Fahid Ben Khalfallah's cross from close range.

Henri Saivet tried to double his side's advantage a minute later, but his shot from outside the Bastia box was too high.

Diabate had an attempt saved midway through the second half and Obraniak came close in the final 15 minutes of the match, but Bordeaux had to settle for a 1-0 win.

Cheick Diabate is congratulated by team mates after scoring his second goal against Newcastle on December 6, 2012
