In the fight for the qualification in his group of the Europa League if he can score in Turkey.
It is true that the Portuguese teams did not always get along well with this country, but Konyaspor does not have a squad that asserts itself as an insurmountable obstacle, nor is it experiencing a particularly positive phase to assert itself as an impossible opponent .
For that reason, Pedro Martins’ team should travel with some confidence for this match, after a home draw against a much more difficult opponent, such as RB Salzburg.
The group is not easy for the Vimaranenses, with Marseille closing the quartet, but it is good to keep in mind that a positive result in Turkey could relaunch the accounts.
Konyaspor lived a period of four games always to lose, three consecutive without scoring, even a goal, which will have greatly damaged the trust of this team.
In the last weekend, returned to the positive results, beating Akhisar 2-0. Now it will be up to the group led by Mustafa Akcay to make the leap to achieve something positive in Europe.
Vitória de Guimarães has not yet won away from home this season.
Natural difficulties for a team that has undergone a lot of changes in its squad and that still looks for the best dynamics to reach the same level of the previous season. It will be difficult, yes.
Prognosis Konyaspor vs Guimarães:
But for this match, Vitória de Guimarães should not feel the same distance from other opponents in European territory.
With an eleven compact, but good ability to leave the chase at the time of transition, Victorians will experience the possibility of adding points.
Your home opponents will still feel the pressure of having to do much better to have the slightest hope of competing for the qualification.
