Vakoun Bayo scored his third goal of 2021 as Toulouse pulled off an upset in the French Cup by winning away to Bordeaux.

The on loan Celtic striker showed great anticipation and composure to move onto a through ball then slipped his shot beyond the approaching Bordeaux keeper to open the scoring six minutes before half-time.

After a slow start to his move Bayo seems to be finding some form with Bordeaux a tougher test than the Second Division sides that Toulouse are battling with to return to the top flight.

Fellow striker Janis Antiste scored in the 56th minute to secure an away win.

Goal at 1 minute

The Ivorian joined Celtic two years ago from Dunajska Streda but his career never really got underway. In a rare appearance he seemed to score twice against Hearts but the SPFL decided to record them as own goals.

Toulouse are in second place in Lique 2, two points behind leaders Troyes and two ahead of Grenoble.

Bayo is under contract with Celtic until June 2022 meaning that this summer will be a critical time over whether he stays or moves on.
