Commentary

Minute   Description
PSG, meanwhile, march towards further records as they continue their tour of dominance. They didn't have it all their own way and were certainly made to work for their win but Unai Emery's side got their in the end.
Bordeaux can certainly hold their heads high after that performance as they made life difficult for PSG throughout and were unfortunate to lose in the end. The result does pretty much any outside chances they had of sneaking into the Europa League spots this season, although that was always unlikely to happen.
FULL-TIME! It was a slog for the majority of the game but Giovani Lo Celso's third goal in two games has handed PSG their 29th victory of the season, taking their tally for the campaign to ninety. They're now just six points short of the all-time record in Ligue 1, set by Laurent Blanc's PSG a few years ago.
90'+3 WHAT A CHANCE! A brilliant block from Berchiche deflects the ball behind for a corner and that's that, PSG have another victory!
90'+1 THREE minutes of added time!
89' We almost went the entire game without a booking! Kimpembe is caught napping in possession and has the ball stolen off him by de Preville. The defender blatantly concedes a foul but he certainly wasn't the last man.
87' Bordeaux appeal for a penalty but instead get a corner, which Kimpembe smashes away. PSG are defending their lead and time is running out for Gus Poyet's side.
85' Areola saves again! De Preville heads towards goal from the middle of the box but it's a comfortable save from the PSG stopper, who has looked unbeatable tonight.
84' Can Bordeaux get a dramatic equaliser? They're throwing everything forward in an attempt to do exactly that.
82' CHANCE! Another opportunity goes begging for Bordeaux! De Preville charges down the right with plenty of room and drills a fine cross into the area to Lerager but he fails to hit the target.
81' Bordeaux's last change was attacking, PSG's is defensive. Meunier replaces Mbappe, who's endured a difficult time this evening.
There's definitely a chance for Bordeaux to draw level in the final ten minutes of the game but beating Areola is another challenge entirely, he's been in superb form tonight.
79' Third and final change for Bordeaux, who introduce striker Laborde in place of Plasil. Poyet is clearly chasing an equaliser.
78' Bordeaux's resolve has finally been broken down and PSG are edging towards their 29th Ligue 1 victory of the season, putting them just one behind the all-time record.
76' Cavani is credited with the assist but he certainly didn't mean that!
GOAL! Lo Celso has done it again! The midfielder hit twice against Monaco last week and he's finally broken the deadlock here. A corner comes back off the head of Cavani to the Argentina ace on the edge of the area, who smashes home.
75' WHAT A SAVE! A brilliant and strong hand from Areola denies Pablo from heading home, after he rose to meet Malcom's free-kick delivery on the near side.
73' Bordeaux actually look the more likely to score before this match finishes but they need to be very wary heading into the final stages.
71' And now another change for the hosts, as de Preville replaces Braithwaite leading the line.
70' First change for Bordeaux sees Sankhare replaced and he's visibily furious. On his place comes Meite.
68' Only one side in all competitions this season has managed to stop PSG from scoring and that was Montpellier way back in September. Bordeaux could potentially join a very special club.
66' PSG have a penalty appeal turned down as Mbappe clips a cross into the area towards Draxler, who is bundled to the ground. The referee isn't interested though and waves for play to continue.
65' Another change for PSG as Pastore, who has regularly given the ball away cheaply, is replaced by Motta.
64' SAVE! A superb ball unleashes Malcom down the right and he cuts back to Lerager outside the box, who smashes towards goal but sees his attempt parried away by Areola.
62' First change of the game as young Nkunku is replaced by Germany international Draxler.
61' OVER! The ball drops for Malcom just on the edge of the area but he volleys an effort into the ground, which bounces over the crossbar. PSG starting to show visible signs of frustration now.
59' The longer it stays level, the more encouragement Bordeaux will have. That could lead the hosts to push further forward though, potentially opening up gaps at the back for PSG to exploit.
57' Excellent play from Sabaly sees the full-back find room down the right, then feeding in Malcom just inside the box. He tries to find Braithwaite in the middle but PSG's defence stands firm to get the ball away.
55' If speculation is to be believed, then Emery doesn't have too much longer left as PSG boss. Thomas Tuchel is the favourite to take charge but maybe the availability of Arsene Wenger will change things.
53' PSG have found the net in each of their last 26 Ligue 1 games, the longest ongoing run in the competition, but they need to work to extend that record this evening.
51' Swift counter from Bordeaux sees Braithwaite slice a shot across the face of goal, though it never really threatened Areola.
50' A fine move for Cavani's strike but the decision was definitely correct. It should give PSG more encouragement though, as they seek to break down Bordeaux's resilient side.
48' OFFSIDE! Cavani has the ball in the net as he smashes home Pastore's cross at the back post but he's moved too soon.
47' The tempo has settled back into what we saw throughout the first period, with PSG dictating the play and Bordeaux having to remain contained. It's the sort of game where you feel that just one goal could decide it.
45' KICK-OFF! Back underway for the second half, where PSG now attack to the left.
PSG, meanwhile, haven't looked rattled but are certainly not in their stride. After hitting seven past Monaco last week, you'd expect them to be firing on all cylinders again this weekend but Emery's men need to show a bit more class in the final third.
Bordeaux came out flying from the blocks and, whilst they weren't able to maintain that pressure, they've done well to keep PSG contained into their own defensive half. A number of missed opportunities could come back to haunt them though.
HALF-TIME! Goalless on the Atlantic coast but a superb watch, with Bordeaux matching PSG stride for stride so far and keeping the champions quiet. The hosts have had a number of chances themselves and have impressed, whilst Emery will look for his side to find their spark after the restart.
45' Excellent defending! Malcom superbly beats Berchiche down the right and plays a superb ball into the middle. It looks destined to be stabbed home but superb intervention from Alves clears the danger, putting the ball behind for a corner that comes to nothing.
43' CHANCE! Golden opportunity for PSG! Lo Celso scoops a pass over the top of the defence to Mbappe, who slcies a volley way over the bar.
42' Have to say, PSG don't look to be stressing at all despite not getting their own way. There's a sort of swagger about them that says 'ok it's not working but we're too good for it to stay this way'.
40' Another youngster who's impressing me so far tonight is 19-year-old Kounde in the heart of defence for Bordeaux. Up against global superstars Cavani and Mbappe, he's yet to put a foot wrong.
38' PSG's brightest player this evening has actually been young Nkunku, who looks extremely mature in midfield despite this being his only third start in Ligue 1.
36' Poyet will be delighted if his side hold onto this result for the break but it's surely only a matter of time until PSG spring into life. Mbappe and Cavani have been passengers so far but are always capable of moments of magic.
34' Comical moment as referee Antony Gautier clatters into a Bordeaux man, leading to the hosts kicking the ball back to PSG. Still finely poised heading into the final ten minutes of the half.
32' The majority of Bordeaux's attacking play has been down the left with Kamano, rather than down the right with Malcom. If they really want to test PSG, they need to shake things up a bit. It's all a bit too easy for PSG at the moment.
30' Nkunku's attempt from distance is fired wide of the mark but it took a deflection on the way through. His delivery is headed over the bar but Costil got a touch, although the referee doesn't give another corner on the near side.
28' Nervous moment for PSG, as Areola makes a mess after coming to clear the ball away and is fortunate that Braithwaite can't get the ball in a position to shoot.
26' We haven't seen too much of Brazil starlet Malcom so far this evening, with his time on the ball mostly coming when he trots over to take set pieces. Bordeaux need to get him involved in the game more if they're to break down this PSG side.
24' The hosts have dropped off a bit in their pressing, which is allowing PSG to control the game. Chances for Emery's men have been at a premium so far though.
20' WASTED! A glorious chance for Bordeaux to open the scoring, as a glorious cross finds Kamano in acres of space but he can't direct his header goalwards.
19' SAVE! Areola with a fine save to stop Braithwaite opening the scoring, as the former Middlesbrough striker's effort takes a deflection and needs to be tipped around the post. From the resulting corner, PSG get the danger away.
17' Having weathered the early storm, PSG are starting to put their mark on the game and are beginning to dictate the tempo.
15' Excellent defensive football to watch from Bordeaux, who are playing with a high press when the ball is in PSG's half but immediately switch to a more rigid line when the visitors venture over the halfway line. It takes a lot of discipline and awareness though, so we'll see how long it remains like this.
13' SAVE! PSG finally come out of the traps and Costil is forced into a superb save, as Lo Celso fires a dipping shot towards the bottom corner.
11' Poyet's side are playing with a high press, not allowing PSG to get out of their own half so far. Braithwaite goes toe-to-toe with Kimpembe but concedes a free-kick. A very good intensity to start the game.
9' Bordeaux are being urged on by their fans as they win another corner but they're yet to create an opportunity from the set-piece.
7' Sankhare smashes a shot wide of the goal from outside the box as Bordeaux's early pressure continues. PSG are yet to settle into the game.
5' A very positive start from the hosts as they win two early corners but Malcom's latest delivery is snatched out of the air by Areola.
3' PSG have already surpassed their best ever goalscoring season, scoring 103 this term, and have the all-time record (118) in their sights. They scored seven against Monaco last week and hit six past Bordeaux in the reverse fixture back in September.
1' KICK-OFF! We're underway at the Matmut Atlantique, where Bordeaux get us started and attack to the left in the first period.
Emery makes three changes to his PSG side, restoring Mbappe, Kimpembe and Nkunku to the line-up. As a result, Silva and Draxler drop to the bench, while Angel Di Maria missesout through injury.
Bordeaux coach Gustavo Poyet makes two changes to the side that beat Montpellier, bringing Malcom and Poundje into the fold. Vada drops to the bench, whilst Diego Contento doesn't make the squad.
PSG subs: Kevin Trapp, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta, Thomas Meunier, Layvin Kurzawa, Julian Draxler, Timothy Weah.
Bordeaux subs: Over Mandanda, Gaetan Laborde, Theo Pellenard, Valentin Vada, Paul Baysse, Nicolas de Preville, Soualiho Meite.
PSG XI: Alphonse Areola; Dani Alves, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Yuri Berchiche; Giovani Lo Celso, Adrien Rabiot, Christopher Nkunku; Javier Pastore, Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe.
Bordeaux XI: Benoit Costil; Youssouf Sabaly, Jules Kounde, Pablo, Maxime Poundje; Lukas Lerager, Jaroslav Plasil, Younousse Sankhare; Malcom, Martin Braithwaite, Francois Kamano.
Tonight's hosts Bordeaux, meanwhile, caught the eye last weekend with a stellar 3-1 win over Montpellier. Sat 11th, a memorable win would see them move into the top half of the table.
PSG have 87 points so far this season with five matches to play, giving them a big chance of beating the current record of 96 for the most points in a Ligue 1 campaign. On top of this, Emery's team have 28 wins- two short of the record of the most wins in a season.
Good evening and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Ligue 1 clash between Bordeaux and Paris Saint-Germain, where Unai Emery's side have already clinched the title and are seeking to set some division records between now and the end of the season.
