The game was quickly becoming a one-sided match with Newcastle being charge of it. After just 16 minutes they made their mark with Shola Ameobi tapping the ball inside the net of the visitors. When 10 minutes remained on the clock before the break Henrique placed the game further out of the reach for the opposition as he received a cross from Danny Simpson scoring the 2nd goal of the evening.
It was all over for Bordeux after Papiss Cisse netted the 3rd and last goal of the encounter.
Boardeux are now in 3rd place of Group D with 3 points while Newcastle are just ahead of them with 4 points.
