From FOX Sports - January 20, 2018

PARIS (AP)Firing coach Jocelyn Gourvennec had an immediate impact on Bordeaux, which moved five points away from the relegation zone with a 1-0 win at Nantes in the French league on Saturday.

Under caretaker coach Eric Bedouet, who was put in temporary charge on Thursday following Gourvennecs departure, Bordeaux had the best chances in a display of attacking football.

The visitors took the lead in the 26th minute when Nicolas De Preville cut behind a defender in the area to connect with a precise cross from Youssouf Sabaly and plant a firm header past goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.

De Preville came close to adding a second goal soon after the break but his shot ended inches wide after combining well with Malcolm.
