Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Venezia's last five outings as well as in four of Sassuolo's last five fixtures, so you can see why we're predicting goals in this game.

Venezia vs Sassuolo: The Stats and Facts
Can Venezia secure the win they so desperately need this weekend?
Venezia faced a tricky away game against Verona last time out and ended up suffering a 3-1 defeat. Simeone, son of the Atletico Madrid manager, was on top form once again, scoring all three of the host's goals and claiming the match ball. Okereke scored Venezia's consolation goal in the 81st-minute and the club will be hoping he has his shooting boots on once again this weekend. As things stand, Venexia find themselves third from bottom in the Serie A table, 3pts adrift from safety and with a worse goal difference than any of the teams above them.
Venezia Predicted Lineup – Romero, Haps, Caldara, Ceccaroni, Črnigoj, Cuisance, Ampadu, Busio, Aramu, Henry & Okereke
Sassuolo would have been expecting a tough 90-minutes at home to Fiorentina last weekend but that didn't stop them from securing all 3pts. Traore put Sassuolo in front in the 19th-minute and that goal looked to have been enough to win the game until Cabral equalised for the visitors with 2-minutes of the 90 remaining. However, Sassuolo didn't give up and deep into stoppage-time, Defrel forced home a winning goal that sent the home fans into hysterics.
Sassuolo Predicted Lineup – Consigli, Chiricheș, Ferrari, Kiriakopoulos, Müldür, Lopez, Frattesi, Traorè, Berardi, Scamacca & Raspadori
Venezia: Lezzerini and Ebuehi are both expected to be out until mid to late March due to injury.
Sassuolo: Lopez is suspended, while Toljan and Djuricic could miss the game through injury.
