Another interesting duel comes from Group I, with Marseille hosting Konyaspor Thursday evening in the opening round of Europa League group-stage.
As expected, the French team is in pole-position, with odds between 1.30 and 1.40 for a victory at the moment. Marseille have a decent group, with Salzburg, Guimaraes and Konyaspor. They have no excuse in case they fail to qualify in the last 32 round from a group like this one. OM come here after a bad display in Ligue 1, losing 1-6 to Monaco and they 1-3 vs Rennes in front of the own crowd.
Konyaspor won the Turkish Supercup this season against Besiktas (2-1). Anyway, they failed to impress in the first four rounds of Super Lig, winning only three points out of twelve. They defeated Genclerbirligi, 3-0 at home, losing 1-2 vs Trabzonspor, 1-2 vs Basaksehir and 0-2 vs Alanyaspor. Besides the Turkish Supercup, Konya failed to win any of their official trips in the past nine months in all competitions, incuding the friendlies here.
