Nice, France ( - Bordeaux maintained its perfect start to the Ligue 1 season on Saturday after rolling to a 3-1 victory over Nice at the Stade Municipal du Ray.

The visiting side then grabbed the lead two minutes into the second half when Nicolas Maurice-Belay found the back of the net.

Nine minutes later Bordeaux sealed the result with another tally from Gregory Sertic to make it a two-goal advantage. Diabate was shown a second yellow card eight minutes from time, but Nice couldn't mount any kind of offensive charge down the stretch.
