Konyaspor is not going through a great form in this season, considering that they have accumulated only one win in the last eight games and they have not won for three years, which does not help their situation in the Turkish championship, which appears just above the descent zone. In their last match for the competition, the team finished more than twice as many times as the opponent, but showed no efficiency and bitter another draw against their fans against Antalyaspor. The numbers of the national championship reveal a team that is characterized by a very weak attack, and that is confirmed in the Europa League, which has the worst offensive sector of Group I, but still have chances to achieve the classification. The Turkish club is one of the least finished in the continental tournament and also shows a lot of fragility in the change of passes, having one of the worst media in that aspect among the 48 participating teams. For this duel, the coach must keep the team in a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-1-4-1, with a highlight for Bourabia in midfield.

For this competition, they have not won any of the last 4 away matches. In 8 matches in this tournament, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only won 1 result.
Olympique de Marseille has had a good performance this season, as it has only two losses in the last twelve games, taking into account all the competitions it is playing, and now tries to maintain that pace to guarantee three more points in the Europa League. and thus channel the classification for the next phase of the competition. In the French championship, the club has been doing a beautiful campaign, occupying the fourth place, and standing out for the good offensive power it has shown. However, that is not confirmed in the continental tournament, since it has three goals in four games and has not scored goals as a visitor.
