Bordeaux down Monaco to reach League Cup quarters

Three-time winners Bordeaux booked their place in the quarter-finals of the French League Cup with a 3-0 victory at home to Monaco on Wednesday.

Teenage striker Adam Ounas struck a superb 16th-minute opener for the hosts before Uruguayan forward Diego Rolan curled home a second goal just before the hour.

Bordeaux captain Henri Saivet headed in a third two minutes from time to seal just a second win for Willy Sagnol's men in their last eight matches.

Bordeaux won the last of their League Cup titles in 2009 under then-coach Laurent Blanc and also went on to claim the Ligue 1 crown that same season.

Later on Wednesday, holders and record five-time winners Paris Saint-Germain start their defence against 2013 winners Saint-Etienne at the Parc des Princes.

Lyon will bid farewell to the Stade de Gerland when they host second-division Tours ahead of moving into their new 59,000-capacity stadium in January, while Marseille visit Bourg en Bresse.
