Europa League: On a duel for this Group I’s leadership, Konyaspor hosts Salzburg this Thursday…
Their group is very balanced and not very well defined, without any of the teams standing out.
The leader is precisely Salzburg, having 4 points gained so far, thanks to a win over Marseille and a draw with Guimarães away from home.
The Europa League is always a consolation prize for the teams who missed out on the Champions League.
That is Salzburg’s case. The team slaughtered Hibernians but then got eliminated by Rijeka on the Champions League groupstage. However, it is curious to see that they were eliminated without losing a single match.
Then the team still eliminated Vitorul on the qualifying stage for the Europa League, where they didn’t lose as well. That means that Salzburg is still unbeaten on the European competitions this season.

Konyaspor vs Salzburg – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Turks of Konyaspor are in 3rd place with the same points as Marseille, but they are behind on the tiebreak criteria. The form of this Turkish team isn’t very good.
The team started off with a loss against Marseille away from home. But on the 2nd round they were able to beat the Portuguese side Guimarães in Turkey.
Returning to the Turkish league question, the team’s campaign is poor so far. Konyaspor is just 1 spot above the relegation zone. Of course, that Konyaspor’s form isn’t the best one.
But still, I think the visitors’ odds are exaggerated. We know how tough it is to play in Turkey and Salzburg hasn’t played that well on this group stage.
Therefore, the handicaps favouring the Turks are very interesting in my opinion.
