Team News: Venezia
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Venezia boss Alessio Dionisi to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group. Alexandre Pimenta (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Perugia
Thanks to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, Perugia manager Serse Cosmi has no fitness concerns to report before this clash. Marco Albertoni will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We feel that Perugia and Venezia could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
