Turkish Super Lig side Konyaspor welcome Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille to the Torku Arena for a match day five Europa League Group J match on Thursday. The hosts will be looking to avenge a 1-0 loss suffered in France on the group’s opening day.
Konyaspor come into this match on the back of a goalless draw with Red Bull on match day four. They play Antalyaspor in the league in the weekend preceeding this match. They are currently third in the group with four points, two behind second-placed Marseille. Lebogang Manyama is likely to be a key figure for them after impressing in recent weeks.
Marseille will be looking to seal qualification with a win and are likely to be on the attack from the get-go. They are beginning life without Patrice Evra, who was sacked for kicking a fan before the recent international break. Konstantinos Mitroglou in attack and Dimitri Payet in midfield should be their key players.
