A late free-kick from Rafael Dias meant Bordeaux dropped what could be two vital points in their pursuit of Champions League football after they drew with relegation-threatened Sochaux.

A Loic Poujol strike had put the visitors in front at the Stade Jacques Chaban-Delmas before a Jerome Roussillon own goal brought the hosts level.

A second-half strike from Yoan Gouffran put Francis Gillot's side in front against his old club.

However Dias popped up with just three minutes fro time to earn a point for Sochaux, who dropped into the bottom three, while Bordeaux are now sixth but just one point off the Champions League places.

The home side had the first chance of the game after 10 minutes when Benoit Tremoulinas connected with a Jaroslav Plasil corner only to see Simon Pouplin deflect the effort away for a corner.

Nicolas Maurice-Belay went close with a header just before the half-hour mark, but the home side found themselves behind after 32 minutes.

Ryad Boudebouz's free-kick from outside the penalty area found an unmarked Poujol and the centre-back beat Cedric Carrasso.

But seven minutes later Bordeaux were level as Gouffran combined well with Tremoulinas, before the latter crossed accurately for Jussie whose header hit winger Roussillon before beating Pouplin.

Just a minute after the restart and the home side were in front as Tremoulinas crossed for Jussie whose flick was converted by Gouffran from 12 yards out.

Bordeaux could have extended their lead after 70 minutes as Plasil's accurate pass from the left was volleyed towards goal by Gouffran, but his spectacular effort was saved by Pouplin.

And Sochaux snatched a point late on as Dias smashed a free-kick into the top corner from long range to earn Eric Hely's side an unlikely point.
