Statattack Week 5: Bordeaux's record stands

Ligue 1 Conforama > News

FC Girondins de Bordeaux defended their own Ligue 1 win record as they held Paris Saint-Germain to a draw; Stade Rennais are in rare form; Majeed Waris is back on the goal trail; Edinson Cavani is proving unstoppable.

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

Thank to their clinching a 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes on Friday night, Bordeaux remain the only side ever to string together 14 consecutive wins in Ligue 1 - a feat they achieved between March 14 and August 23, 2009 - when they were coached by a certain Laurent Blanc.

Willy Sagnol's men remain the last side to beat Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1, having prevailed 3-2 at home to the capital club on March 15, 2015, and they are also the side who stopped the reigning champions' winning run at 13 matches.

Wahbi Khazri bagged a goal and assist in the win in March, and the Tunisian international forward was the one on hand to beat Kevin Trapp and score another important goal against Paris Saint-Germain - one of three clubs against which he has now scored three Ligue 1 goals (along with Evian TG FC and FC Lorient).


The best performances

28: Week 5 saw 28 goals, 261 shots and 97 on-target shots, all of which are high-water marks so far in season 2015-16.

4: Stade Rennais' 2-0 derby win in Nantes leaves them in second place with four wins from their first five matches of the season - a feat the Brittany club hasn't pulled off since all the way back in 1950.

41: With two goals and an assist in 124 minutes played, Stade de Reims striker Jordan Siebatcheu has proven decisive once every 41 minutes in Ligue 1 - not bad for a 19-year-old in his first season in France's top flight!

100%: FC Lorient's Majeed Waris has scored all ten of his career Ligue 1 goals in the second halves of matches. What's more, nine of the former Valenciennes sensation's ten goals have been scored at home.

20: Zlatan dependent? Paris Saint-Germain have not been beaten in Ligue 1 when Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out of action since April 13, 2014, when the capital club lost 1-0 in Lyon. That's 20 matches (13 wins, seven draws)!

3: Caen captain Julien Féret, who scored in the 3-1 win away to Troyes on Saturday, has a goal to his name in every one of his last three clashes with the Champagne region club.


Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani's magnificent brace in the 2-2 draw with Bordeaux was his second double in as many Ligue 1 matches, and confirmed the Uruguay striker's blistering start to the season.

Cavani may not have topped the scorers chart last season, but with 15 Ligue 1 goals, the former Napoli striker has out-scored everyone since the beginning of the calendar year.

Fourteen of those goals have come in his last 12 Ligue 1 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, and since his first Ligue 1 match, on August 9, 2013, Cavani has scored 38 goals - that's three more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic has in the same period of time.
