UEFA Europa League
(14 Sep 2017)
Olympique Marseille – Konyaspor
Olympique Marseille welcomes Konyaspor in a match of the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.
Olympique Marseille: The home team enters the group stage after having eliminated Domzale. After 5 played matches, they are holding the 10th position in French Ligue 1 with 7 points won. They have won 2 times, drawn 1 time and lost 2 games. So far in this season they have scored 7 for but conceded 10 goals. However, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 matches in this competition while their offence has scored frequently.
Konyaspor: On the other side, the away team had direct access to the group stage, so they will play their first match in Europa League. Konyaspor has played 4 matches in Turkey Super Lig and they are currently holding the 14th with 3 points won. They have 1 win and 3 losses with 5 scored 6 conceded goals. Seems like they aren’t showing a lot of quality this season so far.
Conclusion: In this match, the home advantage may play an important role, as both sides show significant differences between home and away performances. Also, Marseille has conceded nine goals in their previous two games and looks defensively poor. Konyaspor hasn’t kept a clean sheet away in their previous six games either. This should be a very open match with many chances and goals hopefully.
