Empoli Draw no Bet
With five defeats and two draws in their last seven Serie A assignments, Venezia have looked every inch like potential relegation contenders over the past month and they could come unstuck again against away day specialists Empoli. The visitors have lost just twice in ten away games this term and their knack for producing the goods on the road makes them an interesting option on Sunday. We recommend backing them in the draw no bet market however, for extra insurance.

Venezia vs Empoli: Stats, Markets & Odds
Here are the top stats for this week’s fixture along with a tool to help you pick the best odds for the contest.
Empoli hoping to produced the good on the road again at Venezia
Venezia are drifting south at an alarming rate and ahead of Sunday’s game just a single point separates them from the drop zone. Paolo Zanetti’s strugglers were bested in five of their last seven Serie A fixtures and their dismal performances in the final third have been their undoing. Only bottom club Salernitana have scored fewer goals overall this term.
Venezia Predicted Lineup – Romero – Mazzocchi, Ampadu, Ceccaroni, Haps – Cuisance, Kiyine, Busio – Okereke, Aramu, Henry
Empoli were torn to shreds in a 5-1 mauling at home to Sassuolo in their last outing and their home form has been well below par for the majority of the campaign. They are a different team on the road however, and their run of just two defeats in ten away matches included wins at Juventus and Napoli.
Empoli Predicted Lineup – Vicario – Stojanovic, Ismajli, Tonelli, Marchizza – Zurkowski, Stulac, Henderson – Bajrami, Di Francesco, Pinamonti
