Bordeaux win but not enough to get past Lyon

Bordeaux managed to record a 1-0 home win in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against French Ligue 1 rivals Lyon but it wasn't enough to progress to the semi-finals.

After a 3-0 first leg win to Lyon, Laurent Blanc's Bordeaux needed a much better result than what they achieved and will now turn their focus to defending their league title.

Marouane Chamakh gave Les Girondins some hope when he struck just before half-time but Les Gones managed to hold out their rivals for the remaining 45 minutes to book a final four date with Germany's Bayern Munich.
