Bordeaux beaten, Brest rue poor finishing
Bordeaux's struggles in Ligue 1 continued as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Nice today.
Les Girondins could only finish sixth last season and, after losing coach Laurent Blanc to the France national team, they had taken only four points from as many games this time around.
Mouloungui converted Anthony Mounier's free-kick (35) after Michael Ciani fouled Danijel Ljuboja and Bamogo made the game safe in the last minute from Didier Digard's through-ball.
The hosts were grateful for that goal as Renato Civelli's handball allowed Anthony Modeste to convert a stoppage-time penalty, but they hung on for victory.
In today's other afternoon kick-off, Brest were left to rue their poor finishing as they could only manage a goalless home draw with Lorient.
The hosts' Tomas Micola went as close as anyone to breaking the deadlock, drawing a save from Fabien Audard in the 20th minute before narrowly failing to find the target with a long-range effort in the first half and an angled drive 18 minutes from time.
