Review of the Bordeaux team
The main loser in his group. Not a single point in the initial rounds of the league of Europe has not earned "brown". They scored only two goals in these duels and they conceded five.
The tournament for Bordeaux began with a trip to the Czech Republic to the local Slavia. The final whistle of the referee in this comparison recorded the score of 1: 0 in favor of the home team, although it could very well be overwhelming. A minimum of dangerous moments at the opponents' goal was created by the French club players, and Slavia had many.
In the stalemate at home with Danish Copenhagen, the Girondeans seemed much more active. Nineteen shots on the opponent's door were inflicted by "brown", but only one of them managed to convert into a goal. The Danes were accurate twice, although they had several times less attempts to score.
The top scorer of Bordeaux in the current season is the Guinean legionnaire Francois Kamano. In the French league, he scored seven goals, but so far in the Europa League "is silent".
He lost the game against the injured Zenit Mendi, Levchuk, Kalu, Sabali. But Lerager went through the "mustard chalk".
Overview of the "Zenith" team
Sergei Semak's barriers in the Europa League have not yet suffered a single loss. This is the only Russian club that participates in European competitions, which this season can boast such a result.
Seven points in the Zenit resource allow him to lead Group C and have great chances to reach the playoffs. The first "blue-white-blue" rival in this tournament was "Copenhagen". The teams met in the capital of Denmark. The score of the match was opened by the guests, but failed to maintain the advantage and the final whistle of the referee recorded 1: 1 on the scoreboard. In "Zenith" noted Robert Mac.
The second match of the group group of Europa League has already brought three points to the blue-white-blue box. With a minimum score, Slavia was defeated, although the Czech team, frankly, seemed preferable in terms of play. The goal counts outrageous Kokorin, who, for obvious reasons, will miss the next battle.
The title of Zenit's top scorer is Artem Dzyuba. The star of the Russian team and the past World Cup have scored ten goals this season.
