Salzburg vs Konyaspor: Preview and Predictions
Salzburg can qualify for the knockout phase of the Europa League with a win against Konyaspor on Thursday, if Vitoria Guimaraes fail to defeat Marseille.
With the win in the reverse fixture against Konya, Salzburg moved to the top of Group I with 7 points. Having a 4 points lead against third placed Super Lig side and 6 over Vitoria, the Austrians are in a perfect position to qualify for the knockout stage.
Formwise, Salzburg are doing well in all competitions lately. They are unbeaten in the last 14 with 10 wins and 4 draws. Besides, they are yet to lose a home game this season, 7 wins and 4 draws from 11.
Meantime, Konyaspor are a team struggling for consistency. The team who started the season on flying colors with the super cup win over Besiktas has since managed 4 wins from the next 12. The away form during the period is particularly poor, no wins in 6 – 1 draw and 5 losses.
Salzburg vs Konyaspor: Head-to-head
The reverse leg of the corresponding fixture won by Salzburg 2-0 is the only meeting with Konyaspor.
Konyaspor have not met another club from Austria in UEFA competitions.
Salzburg are unbeaten at home against Turkish sides in two matches with a win and a draw. Adding the away fixtures in Turkey makes it 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses from 5.
Salzburg vs Konyaspor: Predictions
You may consider Salzburg to win as a sure bet with the Austrians on top form throughout the season and Konya struggling for consistency. On top of that, the Turkish outfit has lost previous away games in Europe conceding 10 goals against 1 scored.
Meantime, Munas Dabbur is a player to watchout for as the Israeli striker bagging 11 goals from 15 appearances in all competitions this season. He can be considered as the top candidate to score any-time here.
