Possible Line-up :

The TFC's fourth-placed finish in L1 last season afforded them a place in the play-offs for the group phase of the Europa League and their European season will kick off away to Turkish side Trabzonspor on Thursday night.
Fresh from a convincing 3-1 home to Saint-Etienne, Alain Casanova's men have some form ahead of their clash with the six-time Turkish champions, but know they face a stern test against last season's Turkish Super League's third-placed side.
"Trabzonspor is a top-quality side, very dangerous in attack, especially from set pieces," said Casanova, also noting that, "Toulouse can definitely pose them some serious problems. They go forward heavily in attack and sometimes that means their side can be cut in two. That could give us some ideas…"
While both sides have one win and one loss so far in their respective league seasons, the Turks will be looking to benefit from their vastly superior European experience of 80 matches in all European competitions.
