Bordeaux's Ligue 1 game with Nimes was suspended for 25 minutes after dozens of fans gathered by the pitch in protest against the club's ownership.

The Bordeaux supporters, who left the stands after 11 minutes, had been calling for the resignation of club president Frederic Longuepee.

After play resumed the home side went on to win 6-0 with ex-Sunderland striker Josh Maja scoring a hat-trick.

Nicolas de Preville and a double from Otavio completed the win.
