Trabzonspor v Bursaspor: Probable Starting Line-ups & Preview

Trabzonspor got their season off to a horrendous start. The Black Sea Storm were eliminated from the Europa League play-off stages by Rabotnicki.

They have however, strengthen on the transfer front bringing in Dame N’Doye, Luis Pedro Cavanda, Esteban and Stephane Mbia.

Manager Ersun Yanal was also replaced by Shota Arveladze.

The Bursaspor side that made it to the Turkish Cup final last season has been raided. Sener Ozbayrakli, Ozan Tufan, Fernandao and Volkan Sen all joined Fenerbahce, while Enes Unal signed for Manchester City and Batuhan Altintas was snapped up by HSV.

Even manager Senol Gunes left for rivals Besiktas but he was replaced by Ertugrul Saglam who has won the league with Bursaspor in the past.

The Green Crocodiles did bring in a few decent replacements including Sivok, Isaac Cuenca and Tom De Sutter but they will need time to settle.

Both sides are in transition going into the start of the season and will need time to settle.

Trabzonspor do however, have a great home record and there is value on the Draw No Bet @1.70 for the Black Sea Storm.
