View all Venezia v Entella tips, stats and our pre-match poll below (including the best match odds).
Venezia are hoping to win again after their last result, a 0-2 Serie B triumph against Pescara.
The only scorer from Venezia was Marco Modolo (74'). Frederik Sørensen (15' Own goal) scored for Pescara.
Their most recent results show that there has been much resilience in the Venezia defence. Arancioneroverdi have kept it tight, resulting in the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 outings standing at 4.
Taking a look at their past results, Venezia:
- haven't lost in the league to Entella in their previous 5 games.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.
Since being beaten in their last game against Frosinone in Serie B competition, Entella and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Entella had 54% possession and 14 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Entella was Andrea Schenetti (50'). On the other side, Frosinone got 10 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Raffaele Maiello (17'), Lorenzo Ariaudo (27'), Marcos Curado (35' Own goal) and Pietro Iemmello (76') scored for Frosinone.
The stats don’t lie, and Entella have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. At the back, Entella have seen their frailties exposed. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Their previous form shows that Entella:
- haven't beaten Venezia when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league matches.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head clashes stretching back to 17/01/2014 shows us that Venezia have won 3 of them and Entella 1, with the tally of drawn games being 2.
A combined total of 12 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 8 of them from Arancioneroverdi and 4 coming from Entella. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.
The previous league game between these sides was Serie B match day 5 on 14/11/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Entella 0-2 Venezia.
On that day, Entella managed 46% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 2 on target.

Team News: Venezia
Lauri Ala-Myllymäki (Knee Injury), Gabriele Ferrarini (Corona virus), Antonio Junior Vacca (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Luca Lezzerini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be able to feature for Venezia boss Paolo Zanetti.
Team News: Entella
Thanks to a completely healthy group ready to go, Entella boss Vincenzo Vivarini doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Filippo Costa and Ilias Koutsoupias.
It looks to us that Venezia will probably be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
At the same time, Entella are also probably going to find it difficult to find the back of the net although we do think it’s probable that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore anticipating a 3-1 winning score for Venezia come full-time.
