Roma's Comeback nets them 3 points in Champions League

After getting beat by Cluj on Match Day One of the group stage of the UEFA Champion's League, A.S. Roma needed an away win at Bordeaux to insure that their hopes of advancing to the knockout round stayed alive - even coach Luciano Spalletti promised that Roma would thrash Bordeaux. Things did not start out well for Roma when Gourcuff found the back of the net for Bordeaux in the 18th minute, and the score remained the same going into halftime.

But Roma found itself in the second half and Vucinic scored an equalizer in the 64th minute. The win came courtesy of Baptista's goals in the 71st and 83rd minutes.
