Girondins de Bordeaux - a taste of life without Gourcuff

I'm setting off for Bordeaux this afternoon with trepidation in my heart.

A groin injury means that Yoann Gourcuff (Bordeaux's world class midfielder) will miss the game against Juventus.

I'm not saying that Laurent Blanc's men are a one man team but imagine Argentina without Maradonna and you get the picture.  The rest are all good team players but certainly not exceptional and I fear for them against a Juventus side that need a result and who have won six of their last seven matches.

I'm convinced that next season will see Gourcuff playing in England or Spain so tonight may well be a little glimpse of things to come.
