Bordeaux clinch first French title in 10 years

Bordeaux has won the French league title for the first time since 1999.

Laurent Blanc's team beat Caen 1-0 Saturday to finish with 80 points, putting it three ahead of Marseille.

Marseille beat Rennes 4-0 in Saturday's final round of games.

Caen and Nantes were relegated along with Le Havre.

It is Bordeaux's sixth league title, and the last, in 1999, was also secured on the final day. The other championships were in 1950, '84, '85, and '87.

Bordeaux scored the only goal in the 49th minute when Yoann Gourcuff's free kick found Benoit Tremoulinas sprinting down the left, and his cross was headed in by Yoan Gouffran, against his former team.

Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc, a 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 winner with France, said: “Tonight, it is a great satisfaction for the lads. We did what we had to do to get there, with these 11 wins in a row.”
