Guimaraes – Konyaspor : Preview & Prediction
Vitoria de Guimarães and Konyaspor measure their strength at the Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques in a meeting for the Europa League (Group Stage). In this match the house factor could play a decisive role, as Konyaspor has shown differences in performance in their games at home and as a visitor.
Analysis of Vitoria de Guimarães
The home team is currently in 4th place, with 4 points earned, after 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, he won at home to Olympique de Marseille by (1-0). In the last match, lost out to Salzburg by (3-0). This is a team that maintains the income when it plays outside its stadium, because in the last 30 games it registers 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in his stadium. The team arrives at this meeting after a victory away with Vitoria de Setubal by (1-2). Vitoria de Guimarães won 4, drew 3 and lost 3 of their last 10 home games for all competitions. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, having conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 games, but his attack has regularly scored, as he has scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches in this competition. In 10 games, he never managed to turn the scoring in the four games in which he suffered the first goal.
Vitoria de Guimaraes bitter the Group I flash of the Europa League, but still feeds away chances of getting the classification for the next phase of the competition, since, for that, it would need to win this confrontation by a elastic scoreboard and still twist by a rout from Salzburg on top of Olympique de Marseille. The club does not have a great phase, but is packed by two consecutive victories, both by the Portuguese Championship, where it occupies the seventh position. The last of them took place outside of Vitoria de Setubal, in a game where he did not have a great performance, but showed opportunism. In the national championship, the big problem of the team has been the defensive system, and this is also true in the continental tournament, since it has the most leaked defense of Group I. The 4-2-3-1 should be the formation adopted for this duel by coach Pedro Martins, who will probably include the Brazilian Raphinha among the eleven initials.
Review of Konyaspor
After 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses, the visiting team is currently in 3rd place with 5 points. In the last match, they drew 1-1 (1-1) at home against Olympique de Marseille, after in the previous match, to have tied for (0-0) away with Salzburg. This is a stronger team when you play in your stadium, because in the last 30 games you have 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in his stadium. In the last game he played, for Super LIga, lost with Bursaspor at home by (0-3). His last away game was for Fortis Türkiye Kupasi and he finished with a win (0-3) against Batman Petrolspor. In the last 10 games as a visitor Konyaspor won 1, tied 2 and lost 7. The team allowed their opponents’ goals in 4 of the last 5 games for this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. In 15 games, he never got around to scoring in the 6 games in which he conceded the first goal.
Konyaspor is also on the pitch for this match yet with chances to qualify for the next phase of the Europa League, in a situation somewhat more favorable than their opponent, but still depending on themselves and other results. The team is not in a good mood as they have only one win in the last seven games and have not won four rounds in the Turkish Championship, where they now occupy the penultimate position, integrating the relegation zone. In their last match, the team had dominated the game and finished triple the opponent’s times, but it was inefficient and left much to be desired in defensive terms, being then thrashed at home by Bursaspor. In the national championship, the club has the worst attack, and this has been repeated in the continental tournament, where it has the worst offensive sector of Group I. The coach is likely to keep the team at 4-2-3-1, Bourabia in the midfield.
