Result: Diego Rolan double sinks Montpellier HSC

Bordeaux win their first game at their new stadium with a 2-1 victory over Montpellier HSC.

A double from Diego Rolan was enough to see sixth-placed Bordeaux beat Montpellier HSC 2-1 in the first game at their new stadium.

The Uruguayan forward scored the first goal at the Nouveau Stade Bordeaux inside nine minutes, latching onto Jaroslav Plasil's through ball before firing his shot into the bottom corner of Jonathan Ligali's net.

Moments later, Rolan was denied a second by a Ligali save before the young goalkeeper twice kept out Wahbi Khazri.

Rolan finally doubled Les Girondins' lead before the interval with a close-range header, seconds after Clement Chantome's shot was saved.

Montpellier improved after the break, with Lucas Barrios twice going close to pulling a goal back for the visitors.

They did reduce the deficit on 63 minutes when a counter-attack led to Kevin Berigaud teeing up Djamel Bakar, who duly beat Cedric Carrasso.

Despite late efforts from Berigaud and Souleymane Camara, Bordeaux were able to hold on for a maiden victory at the Nouveux Stade.
