Bordeaux kept up the pressure on leaders Lyon at the top of the Ligue 1 table and dealt a blow to Rennes´ European hopes with a 2-0 victory at the Route de Lourient.

Alou Diarra volleyed home after 16 minutes to give the visitors the lead and Fernando Menegazzo sealed the win seven minutes from time when he profited from Rennes goalkeeper Patrice Luzi´s error to head home.

The victory moves Laurent Blanc´s team to within six points of Lyon, who travel to Marseille on Sunday, while Rennes fall to sixth place in the table.
