Very strange match this Sunday night between Bordeaux and Marseille, with a fairly logical 0-0 draw given the level shown by both teams.
But more than technical weakness or offensive ill intentions, it was Bordeaux’s attitude at the end of the match that jammed everyone, including the Matmut Atlantic crowd. With 10 minutes to go, the Girondins gradually recoiled as if they were leading the score to protect their lead. And after a difficult period, when they actually got the ball back, Laurent Koscielny’s teammates didn’t even try to attack, spinning the ball. A behavior that still surprised and disappointed, especially if only to preserve the invincibility that is wanted in the heart of the Bordeaux club, but not to the point of stopping attacking to preserve it more easily.
The Girondins celebrate 0-0 on break with fans. Chills! #FCGBOMpic.twitter.com/jjDjH6DucG

We like it, Ligue 1, uh … We would like to be able to defend it, get excited about its show, praise the offensive ambition of its clubs… And then we see the last ten minutes of this game, and we shut up. #FCGBOMhttps://t.co/SnCV8WDn5F

The perverse effect of this record, and this is not the first year, is that Bordeaux thinks more about preserving the draw than playing the win at the end #FCGBOM

The whistles of the Bordeaux public in the face of the ten-man pass organized by the players who are clearly playing the draw in the last seconds… #FCGBOM
