However, they were unable to maintain their lead, Steve Mounie managed to equalize and take the sides off, 16 minutes in at 1-1. However, each side looked hungry to win and Bordeaux then found the back of the net, at 32 minutes thanks to Sekou Mara, taking the score to 2-1. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Youcef Belaili equalised for The Pirates, 34 minutes in, finishing the first half 2-2.

Les Girondins continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, with Sekou Mara finding the net again, 73 minutes in. Bordeaux then netted once more and increased their advantage thanks to a goal from Javairo Dilrosun at the 75 minute mark to make it 4-2.
