take on visiting opponents Ascoli
at Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo in this Serie B tie on Friday. View all Venezia v Ascoli tips, stats and our pre-match poll below - plus the latest match odds.
Venezia head into this match following a 0-0 Serie B drawn game versus Pordenone. In that game, Venezia managed 64% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 3 on target. On the other side, Pordenone had 7 shots on goal with 2 on target.
It has been seldom in recent times where Venezia have kept a clean sheet. In fact, Arancioneroverdi have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 9 goals along the way.
Their past results show that Venezia:
- haven't won against Ascoli in their last 2 league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 8 league matches. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Perugia in Serie B competition, Ascoli will be hoping to turn things around here. In that match, Ascoli had 47% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Perugia got 14 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Hans Nicolussi Caviglia (72') was the scorer for Perugia.
The stats don’t lie, and Ascoli have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 13 goals in all. In defence, Bianconeri just haven’t been too solid at all. Even so, we will just have to wait and see if that trend shall be replicated in this next match.
Coming into this clash, Ascoli are without a win away from home in their last 3 league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels stretching back to 16/04/2005, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Venezia winning 2 of those games, Ascoli 2 and 2 being draws after 90 minutes of play.
A sum of 12 goals were scored between the two sides in this period, with 6 from Arancioneroverdi and 6 created by Bianconeri. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.
The last league contest between these sides was Serie B match day 11 on 02/11/2019 which finished with the scoreline of Ascoli 1-1 Venezia. That day, Ascoli had 44% possession and 7 shots on goal with 4 on target. Their only player to score was Alessio da Cruz (70'). On the other side, Venezia had 13 shots at goal with 2 on target.

In our view, Ascoli will really need to work well to score against this Venezia outfit who will likely just have the edge. We’re therefore tipping a 1-0 advantage for Venezia when all is said and done. Let’s see what happens.
