Bastia beats Bordeaux 3-1 in French league

Bastia beats Bordeaux 3-1 in French league

Teenage striker Florian Thauvin scored twice as Bastia beat Bordeaux 3-1 in the French league on Sunday.
The 19-year-old Thauvin put Bastia ahead in the sixth minute with a low strike _ his first goal in senior football _ and soon made it 2-0 in the 17th, pouncing from close range after forward Toifilou Maoulida's shot was saved by goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso.
A win would have moved Bordeaux into the top five, but instead it lost its unbeaten record in the league.
Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran made it 2-1 in the 30th minute, scoring on the second attempt after his first shot was blocked by goalkeeper Magno Novaes.
But Bastia forward Wahbi Khazri restored mid-table Bastia's two-goal cushion with a curling free kick in the 56th.
