Bordeaux vs FC Copenhagen-Preview

 

  • Two teams who were both winless in their Europa League (EL) openers, go head-to-head as Bordeaux welcome Copenhagen to Matmut Atlantique. It’s the home side’s fourth group stage since 2012/13. They can only improve on recent performances as in their last two appearances, they’ve finished bottom of their group.
  • Bordeaux were dominated in almost every aspect of their 1-0 defeat against Slavia Praha on matchday one. A poor showing after going unbeaten through three qualifying rounds (W5, D1).
  • Overall, however, they are enjoying a fairly good start to the new season, especially in front of their own fans. They’ve won five of seven so far (all competitions; W5, D1, L1), and have scored 2+ goals five times.
  • Copenhagen had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Zenit in their opener after the Russians scored with their only shot on goal. A disappointing result for the Danes, who are looking to qualify for the knockout stages like they did last season.
  • Across all competitions, Copenhagen have been impressive so far this season (W13, D5, L3) – at one point winning eight matches in a row while keeping five clean sheets. Away, however, they’ve shown some weaknesses lately, winning just two of their last six matches (W2, D2, L2).
  • Players to watch:

Young forward François Kamano has been on fire for Bordeaux so far – he’s got two EL goals already and has scored two in his last three matches. Copenhagen’s Dame N’Doye, meanwhile, has two goals in the last three away matches.

  • Stat attack:

Both sides were awarded few yellow cards in the first qualifying rounds, but in their last three EL matches both were shown at least two yellows.

  • Both teams have failed to score in five of Bordeaux’s last seven games.
  • Copenhagen have scored 71% of their EL goals (nine matches including qualifiers) in the second-half.
