Venezia come to this fixture on the back of a 1-1 away draw against Roma at the Stadio Olympico.

Also, getting out of a relegation battle requires a string of positive results, but Andrea Soncin’s men know that 14 losses in 19 meetings is a run of form that will be hard to turn around. With a twentieth position in the league and 6 wins, 23 losses and 8 draws, they currently have 26 points in the League having won six fixtures, drawn eight meetings, and lost 23 matches.

Venezia have won three meetings, drawn four games, and lost 11 meetings of their 18 League matches at home this season.

A victory for Venezia would put them on 29 points.

Andrea Soncin will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of six of his Venezia players.
