Verona vs Venezia: Top Two Tips
Two teams with very different end-of-season goals in mind go head-to-head in Serie A this Sunday. Hosts Verona have their eyes on a top-half finish and possibly European football, while Venezia are simply hoping to remain in Italian football's top-flight for another season.
Over 2.5 Goals
We're expecting goals in this game just as there have been in each of the last two meetings between the pair. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in the last two games played between Verona and Venezia, the first of which was a Coppa Italia tie in 2020 that ended in a 3-3 draw and the other was Verona's 4-3 win in Venezia in the league back in December. At least three goals have also been scored in five of the home sides' last six matches, as well as in two of Venezia's last four league games.
We're not convinced that either side will be able to keep a clean sheet on Sunday as four of their last five head-to-heads have produced goals at both ends of the pitch. Both teams have also scored in four of Verona's and four of Venezia's last six outings in all competitions, so you can see why we're backing both teams to score this weekend.
The Latest Markets & Odds ahead of Verona vs Venezia
An entertaining 90-minutes on the cards as Verona take on Venezia
Last time out, Verona made the trip to Roma and almost came away with a victory. First-half goals from Barak and Tameze put Verona 2-0 up at the Stadio Olimpico but Roma fought back well in the second forty-five through goals from Volpato and Bove to make the final scoreline 2-2. Following that result, Verona sit 9th in the Serie A table and can't move up or down any places whatever the result this weekend.
Verona Predicted Lineup – Montipò, Faraoni, Günter, Ceccherini, Casale, Lazović, Tameze, Barák, Ilić, Caprari & Simeone
Venezia would have been hoping to secure all 3pts against fellow relegation battlers Genoa last weekend. However, despite taking the lead after just 13-minutes through Henry, Venezia couldn't stop Genoa from equalising shortly after and the game finished 1-1. Venezia still sit outside the relegation zone but only by the skin of their teeth as Cagliari have the same points and goal difference as them.
Venezia Predicted Lineup – Romero, Haps, Caldara, Ceccaroni, Svoboda, Nani, Črnigoj, Cuisance, Ampadu, Aramu & Henry
Verona: Miguel Veloso and Ivor Pandur are the two main injury concerns for the hosts this weekend.
Venezia: Luca Lezzerini and Tyronne Ebuehi have been ruled out of the trip to Verona through injury.
