Bordeaux coach Blanc: The sending off changed the game

Roma were 1-0 down against Bordeaux, but managed to hit back and win 1-3. Baptista scored two and Vucini scored once for Roma while Gourcuff scored the goal for the French side.

“The sending off changed the game. I think the referee exagerated and he was influenced by Perrotta’s reaction,” Blanc told Mediaset.

“You can see there was contact but it was just a simple clash.

“Overall we had a good game and we showed that we deserve to be in this competition.”
