Venezia vs Verona: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Venezia couldn't score any goals in the last two Serie A games and lost in both of them. Will Verona take advantage of their hosts' crisis on Sunday, December 5? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Venezia are having a decent season in Serie A. Paolo Zanetti's team is on the 16th line in the table with 15 points from 15 games. Venezia are 5 points above the relegation zone, which can be considered a solid handicap, however, in the last few fixtures, the Winged Lions lost too many points. In the last round, Venezia lost 0:4 to Atalanta away, thus suffering their second defeat in a row.
Verona had a slow start to their Serie A campaign, but Igor Tudor managed to find the right strategy for the team. Recently, the Mastiffs mounted an unbeaten streak of five games, which they lost in Genoa, having suffered a 1:3 defeat to Sampdoria. In the last round, Verona recorded a goalless draw with Cagliari at home. With 20 points, Verona are in 10th place in the table, 4 points behind the European club competition zone.
Verona lost 2 out of 4 games with this score.
In 3 out of 4 home games, Venezia scored in the first half.
In the last 2 away games, Verona scored in the first half.
Venezia don't have a lot of experience in Serie A, and because of that they are quite inconsistent. The team alternates between wining and losing streaks. Verona have an excellent opportunity to collect three points due to their superior quality, and we predict their confident victory here.
Our prediction - Verona to win
Venezia did not score in the last two games, but the hosts probably will use their chances today: at home, the Orange-Black-Greens play aggressively on the offensive, and Verona concede regularly. At the same time, the Mastiffs will look to strengthen their standings, and we expect them to go forward and create many scoring chances.
Our second bet - both to score
