FC Girondins de Bordeaux will look to spruce up their record against English clubs as they meet Liverpool FC again, in UEFA Europa League Group B.
Previous meetings
Under Brazilian coach Ricardo Gomes, Bordeaux met Liverpool in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League group stage; Rafael Benítez’s Reds won 1-0 in Bordeaux and 3-0 at Anfield.
Bordeaux have won only one of their ten games against English clubs (W1 D2 L7 – W1 D2 L2 at home), Newcastle United FC beaten 2-0 in the most recent of those encounters, in December 2012.
Liverpool’s record in 13 games in France is W5 D1 L7.
Form guide
Bordeaux have won both of their European home games this season without conceding.
Liverpool are without a win in five European away games (D1 L4), failing to score in all four of those defeats.
Bordeaux made it through to the round of 32 in their first two UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League group stage campaigns, but missed the cut in their most recent appearance, in 2013/14.
Liverpool made it through to the knockout phase in both of their previous UEFA Europa League group stage campaigns – in 2010/11 and 2012/13.
