Toulouse goalkeeper Nicolas Douchez is confident his side can bounce back from their opening Group E loss to Bayer Leverkusen when they take on Sparta Prague in the UEFA Cup on Thursday.

Douchez felt Les Violets were unfortunate to lose 1-0 in Germany, Stefan Kiessling scoring the winner for Leverkusen in the 35th minute.

He said: "We didn´t take the point that we deserved in Leverkusen, but we were reassured by the standard of football we played."
