Jaroslav Plasil celebrated his birthday with a welcome cup victory over Toulouse. He believes that qualification was well-deserved, especially after the way Bordeaux performed in the second half. He hopes to see a similar performance this Sunday in Monaco. A match which will be crucial if the Girondins are to stay in the top 5.
The midfield powerhouse has been crucial this season
Earlier in the week we sat down with Grégory Sertic, who was making the most of the international break to prepare for the next few games. Grég is very much looking forward to this weekend's home match against Caen, a tough game against opponents who have performed well on the road this year. We also discussed the Girondins' central defence, with Grég ready to step into the breach if needed.
