Bordeaux won the match 4–0 after getting off to a fast start scoring their first three goals inside of 13 minutes.
Bordeaux got off to a fast start, in all aspects of the match, scoring in just the 2nd minute with the BrazilianWendel chipping the ball over Vannes keeper Christophe Revel. Bordeaux then tripled their lead in a span of two minutes with Marc Planus scoring on a header off a corner kick from Wendel in the 10th minute and Yoan Gouffran scoring just his second goal for Bordeaux in the 12th minute off a free kick from Yoann Gourcuff, though the latter was first credited with the goal. However, after looking at the replay, it was determined that Gouffran got a slight head on the ball redirecting it slightly. Gourcuff would get his goal in the 40th minute scoring on a right footed shot just outside of the box. The ball deflected off a Vannes defender before going into the back off the net. This goal gave Bordeaux a 4–0 lead heading into halftime.
