Jussie goal sinks Maccabi

Bordeaux concluded their impressive Champions League Group A campaign on a winning note against a Maccabi Haifa side who exited European competition without a goal or a point to their name.

The French champions, who headed into this match already assured of top spot in the pool and having won four and drawn one of their five games, went ahead through Jussie in the 13th minute and that proved enough for another three points tonight.

Maccabi, meanwhile, finished bottom of the pool and head out of the Champions League having failed to find the net in six games.

The result matched the outcome of the first meeting between these sides, when Michael Ciani's late header proved decisive at the Stade Chaban-Delmas in September.

Jussie put Les Girondins ahead with the first meaningful attack of the game in the 13th minute, latching onto Abdou Traore's cross from the right and stabbing into the roof of the net from close range.

The Brazilian went close to doubling his side's advantage two minutes later but saw his left-footed blast blocked by Maccabi defender Dekel Keinan.

Fernando Cavenaghi was next to try his luck for the visitors, only to see his fierce attempt parried by home goalkeeper Nir Davidovitch.

The Israeli side mustered their first opportunity midway through the first half, Bordeaux stopper Ulrich Rame dealing comfortably with Lior Rafaelov's volley from just outside the area.

Vladimir Dvalishvili then met Eyal Golsa's cross and volleyed wide as the hosts looked to restore parity.

The equaliser almost arrived just before the half-hour when Rame fumbled a Rafaelov corner but Maccabi could not capitalise.

The Bordeaux stopper again failed to hold onto the ball when Rafaelov unleashed one from 18 yards but again no home player was on hand to take advantage and Bordeaux took their one-goal cushion into the break.

Rame had to be on his toes at the start of the second half to keep out a 25-yard free-kick from Vladimir Dvalishvili.

Fernando Menegazzo squandered a fine chance to put Laurent Blanc's side two goals to the good in the 49th minute when he could only direct his header over the bar from Wendell's inswinging corner.

Bordeaux were almost made to pay in the 64th minute when Mohammed Gadir struck a left-footed volley over the bar from close range.

Back at the other end, David Bellion met Wendell's cross and fired right as the visitors again pursued a second goal that would have put the game to bed.

Davidovitch denied Cavenaghi three minutes from time with a 25-yard effort. The second goal did not arrive, but Maccabi could not muster enough to equalise as Bordeaux ran out winners once again.
