Bordeaux squandered the chance to make up vital ground on Ligue 1 leaders Lyon as they slipped to a shock 3-1 defeat at ninth-placed Valenciennes.

Sebastien Roudet opened the scoring for the hosts in the 10th minute but their lead lasted just four minutes before Wendel equalised. Second-half goals from Filip Sebo and Steve Savidan sealed VA´s victory.

A Bordeaux win would have closed the gap to three points with Lyon playing on Sunday but Les Girondins now face the prospect of trailing by nine points after the weekend´s fixtures.
