Bordeaux vs Roma Champions League 08-09 Preview

Bordeaux is going to entertain Roma on 1 October 2008. It is going to be Group A match of Champions League2008-09. This is a match in which I think no one is favorite. Roma has a strong side and it is gradually improving in Italian Serie A. This Sunday, Roma defeated Atlanta 2-0. The only bad news is that Roma will be without their ace striker Francesco Totti who is still injured. So, I think that without Totti Roma attack will become weaken. Some other players are also injured too. However, there is some good news for them Julio Baptista and Daniel De Rossi will come back to the line up after injury and one match ban respectively. So, the midfied of Roma will look strong. This season has not been so good for Roma so far for Roma.

On the other hand, Bordeaux has the same problem. In the first match of the group, Bordeaux suffered 4-0 humiliation to Chelsea. Of course, Chelsea has been in good form and last season Chelsea reached the Champions league final and got out only in penalty shoot out. So, this defeat should be counted that heavily. I think that there can be a draw tonight. I do not see too much goals to be scored in the match between Bordeaux and Roma.
