Bordeaux hit the bottom, plucky Caen win again

Bordeaux fell to the foot of the French league table on Sunday after suffering a 2-1 home defeat to a spirited Toulouse. Their second defeat in as many games saw them replace Marseille at the bottom of the standings.

Champions two years ago and UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists last season, Bordeaux went into the 2011 campaign hoping to recover from the departure of much-loved manager Laurent Blanc, who is now coach of France.

After just two games, the Girondins have yet to put a point on the table, a position which Marseille have also found themselves after a similarly poor start to the campaign.

Elsewhere on Sunday, plucky Caen, who beat Marseille in the league opener last week, produced another giant-killing display to beat former seven-time champions Lyon 3-2 in Normandy.

Toulouse's fortunes meanwhile have taken on a decidedly rosier complexion. They now lead the league table ahead of Sunday's late game between Lille and Paris Saint Germain.

Caen are the only other team on six points after two games, meaning both they and Toulouse hold a two-point lead over Rennes, Valenciennes and Nice.

PSG sit in sixth place on three points and will go top if they beat Lille by two goals or more.
