Exactly 167 days after 2019-20 season was annulled, the Ligue 1 returned with a 0-0 draw game between Bordeaux and Nantes.

Played in an empty stadium, both teams struggled to create chances as the lack of match fitness showed.

The hosts had Mehdi Zerkane shown a red card in the 20th minute, but held on to secure a draw, in a game which saw just one shot on target.
