Carrasso positive ahead of Ligue 1 opener

10 August 2012 18:10

Bordeaux goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso is confident of his team's prospects on the eve of the new Ligue 1 season.

Bordeaux struggled early last season but recovered to finish fifth, leading Carrasso to believe the side can improve again this season.

"We will try to continue on the good process launched last year," Carrasso said.

"The group is good, even if there are some things to improve on. But we have a fresh mind and we want to have a good season."

The 30-year-old is in his third season with Bordeaux and claims his team's advantage is the familiarity among the squad.

"Yes, it's an advantage of having a team with players who know each other. But the championship is going to be difficult, so we need many good players.

"The most difficult aspect is to have a competitive team throughout the season and I would say that we are confident, after this, the rhythm of the season will tell if we are good or not."

Carrasso's side are well behind PSG in title favouritism after the Parisian side's off-season spending spree but he said he is just looking to their opening fixture against Evian.

"Yes it is an away game against a team (Evian) that will be difficult to play. I think every game is tough these days. It remains a difficult match and we should be prepared."
