For Venezia, the scorers were Mattia Aramu (8') and Marco Firenze (66'). Ascoli got 16 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Gianluca Scamacca (24') was the scorer for Ascoli.

Team News: Livorno
Livorno manager Antonio Filippini has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game thanks to a fully injury-free group available for selection. Manuel Marras will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Venezia
Venezia manager Alessio Dionisi has multiple availability issues to deal with. Gian Filippo Felicioli (Corona virus), Gaetano Monachello (Unknown Injury), Michele Cremonesi (Unknown Injury), Sergiu Suciu (Unknown Injury) and Alexandre Pimenta (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not ready for selection.
