Laurent Blanc's Bordeaux go into Tuesday's Champions League clash with Olympiakos as the competition's best performers but the Girondins are wary of the Greek titleholders causing an upset.

The defending French champions boast five wins and a draw from the group stages of Europe's elite tournament. They conceded just two goals and dropped only two points in a 1-1 draw in their opening game with Juventus.

Bordeaux's Argentinian defender Diego Placente believes they will need to show a similar kind of performance to overcome the Greek champions. “We need to play a big game. We have to try and get a goal to make the return match much easier but our defence will be key.”
