Gustavo Poyet gets off to perfect start as Bordeaux coach

Gustavo Poyet got off to a flying start as Girondins de Bordeaux coach when his team upset visiting Olympique Lyonnais 3-1 in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Bordeaux, who under previous coach Jocelyn Gourvennec had lost their three previous home games, prevailed through a Nicolas de Preville goal and penalties by Malcom and Gaetan Laborde, all in the first half.

Lyon, who beat Monaco and Paris St Germain in their two previous outings, reduced the arrears before the break through Marcelo.

Bordeaux finished the game with 10 men when Otavio was sent off after his second yellow card.
