The Championship side, who stayed up on the last day of the season, fell 2-0 down as goals from Jaroslav Plasil and Hadi Sacko gave Les Girondins a commanding lead just after half-time.

But Polish striker Tomaz Cywka pulled one back just after the hour mark, leading to a frantic finish.

In the end the Ligue 1 giants restored their two-goal cushion thanks to an injury-time strike from Maxime Poundje.
