Luca Lezzerini (Thigh Problems), Marco Modolo (Flu) and Lauri Ala-Myllymäki (Knee Surgery) will not be able to play for Venezia boss Paolo Zanetti. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Bruno Bertinato, Gianmarco Zigoni, Jacopo Dezi and Riccardo Bocalon.

Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Aleksandr Kokorin (Muscle Fatigue), Michele Cerofolini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Bartlomiej Dragowski (Hamstring Injury) and Gaetano Castrovilli (Bruise) are not ready for selection.
Here is a game where Venezia will do well to register a score against this Fiorentina outfit who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning margin for Fiorentina after 90 minutes.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
