Konyaspor vs Salzburg: Preview and Predictions

Konyaspor vs Salzburg
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu.

Konyaspor defeated Vitoria Guimaraes 2-1 in front of their fans two weeks ago to stay in the contest for the top two spots in the Group I.

Can the Turks make an upset in the third round and see off Salzburg to further complicate things in the group?


Mustafa Akcay have been struggling a lot with their form in the domestic league, though, as they collected no more than seven points from opening eight games.

The latest of the failures happed on Sunday when Kona dropped home points to Galatasaray (0-2 defeat).

Things look somewhat better when Konya play at Konya Buyuksehir Belediye Stadyumu where the Anatolian Eagle took six of their seven points in domestic league and lone victory in Europa League.


The visitors have been doing much better in their domestic campaign where the Red Bulls hold the second position (a single point deficit to Sturm Graz) after 11 matches.

Marco Rose’s men managed a massive 1-0 victory over Olympique Marseille two weeks ago to launch themselves at the top of the Group I standings with four points from opening two fixtures.

Konyaspor vs Salzburg: Head to head

This is going to be the first ever head to head encounter between the two sides.

Konyaspor vs Salzburg: Prediction

Salzburg have been in a better form, but it is very hard to judge the value of the 3/4 odds offered for the away win pick knowing that Konya have not been that easy to beat on the home court so far in the season.

The hosts will likely sit at the back waiting for their chances through counter attacks which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT bet a decent call here at the 4/5 odds.

Konyaspor vs Salzburg: Bets

The first bet will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 4/5.

The alternative option would be the draw at the odds of 11/4.
