My guess at the starting Line-up

1 Artur
2 Maxi
3 Luisao
4 Garay
5 Capdevila
6 Garcia
7 Perez
8 Witsel
9 Aimar
10 Gaitan
11 Cardozo

I suppose it's alright for us to create a separate thread for Europe despite having one thread for many years. It's going to be interesting to see how we look tomorrow. Hopefully, we secure a win but I'm nervous about playing such an important match so early.

I'm somewhat confident, we've been playing like shit this whole pre-season, if last year's trend continues to this year then this would mean that we'll be good this season.

Word out in the Press is that JJ

will start Aimar, Saviola, Cardozo combo
with Perez on the right and Gaitan on the left.
Garcia defensive mid as normal

Maxi should start with Luisao and Garay taking care of buisness and New guy Emereson will complete the defensive line since there is no other player available for that possition.

Capdevilla was not listed in time to feature in the Qualifying round.

Artur sould be the starting goalie.

that means I wasnt far off my prediction.

Im sure we will see Witsel some point in the game.

O defesa uruguaio chegou a Lisboa ao início desta manhã. Conforme Jorge Jesus já admitiu, Maxi poderá mesmo jogar esta noite frente ao Trabzonspor.

O jogador esteve até domingo ao serviço da selecção uruguaia que conquistou a Copa América na Argentina, viajou rapidamente para o seu país e daí rumou à capital portuguesa, onde chegou esta manhã pouco passava das 7 horas da madrugada.

Estou bem, muito bem, com vontade de jogar», disse o jogador, em declarações à Antena 1.

Maxi terá seguido de imediato para o local de concentração da equipa encarnada, onde uma conversa com Jorge Jesus vai definir qual a disponibilidade para estar na equipa que esta noite defrontará o Trabzonspor.

What time is the game? Also, if any of you can find a feed, I'd be grateful.

our season is just about to start! yes :D

and what a key game, we are playing home and have more pedigree and experience than trabzonspor, so we do have the obligation to win it, no excuses

having said that, i didnt like what i've seen so far, we surely dont have a "team" yet (Jesus agrees..) and that worries me ...plus the luisão soap opera may undermine our already shaky defensive structure

let's hope our players are focused tonight and hungry for goals :D

thats good news

not only because maxi just came from the copa and hasnt played a single game with the team yet, but also because i would hate to see us starting the season with zero portuguese players in the starting line-up..

what a boring game so far...the goalies barely touched the ball, which says it all really

after a promising start, with a couple good occasions to score, we simply fell asleep, and are looking pretty lame
