Toulouse Skipper Dieuze: Liverpool Will Suffer

Toulouse skipper Nicolas Dieuze has warned Liverpool not to expect any favours on a hot afternoon in France.

Liverpool face Toulouse this afternoon in what is expected to be steaming hot conditions in France, one that the club from the North-West of England might not be accustomed to.

"Given how hot it will be [the game kicks off at 15:30 CET], and the fact we have had more preparation time than them, we hope we can make them suffer," said Nicolas Dieuze.

Then, of course, there is the form that Toulous are in, having picked up right where they left off last season.

They finished third in Ligue 1 on the back of a superb four months, and have already scalped Lyon this time around, in a game which saw Kim Kallstrom was sent off for throwing an elbow at Dieuze. Swedish international Johan Elmander scored the match-winner, and will once again be the one to watch.

Toulouse have also been playing some very effective football, in no less measure due to their coach, Elie Baup.

"We have great faith in our coach, we will follow his instructions," asserted Dieuze. "Baup knows all about European football and he can guide us to something special."
