Our tips, poll and stats for Venezia v Pescara can all be found here - along with the latest match odds.
Venezia go into this match after a 0-0 Serie B stalemate versus Cremonese.
In that game, Venezia had 56% possession and 11 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Cremonese got 14 shots on goal with 4 of them on target.
Under three goals per match were scored during 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Venezia have taken part. Regarding the goal weighting during that period, their opponents scored a total of 4 while Arancioneroverdi managed the sum of 5. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see whether such a trend shall be replicated in this match or not.
Analysis of their past results shows that Venezia:
- haven't lost in the league to Pescara in their last 3 games.
- have not won against Pescara in their previous 8 league matches.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Empoli in Serie B action, Pescara and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Pescara had 54% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. The only player to score for Pescara was Fabio Maistro (32'). For their opponents, Empoli got 13 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Simone Romagnoli (6') and Stefano Moreo (63') scored for Empoli.
The stats don’t lie, and Pescara have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 9 goals overall. Defensively, Delfini have been far from perfect.
Their past results show that Pescara:
- remain unbeaten by Venezia when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. A very decent away record against them.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 10 matches in the league. What a terrible run of away results.
Head to head
A glance at their most recent head-to-head meetings going back to 28/12/2017 tells us that Venezia have won 0 of them & Pescara 2, with the tally of drawn games being 4.
An aggregate of 12 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 5 from Arancioneroverdi and 7 for Delfini. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
Team News: Venezia
Venezia boss Paolo Zanetti has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match thanks to a fully healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Pescara
Pescara boss Massimo Oddo has to currently contend with reduced team options. Raoul Bellanova (Corona virus), Mardochee Nzita (Corona virus) and Mattia Del Favero (Shoulder Injury) will not be playing here.
We feel that Pescara will need to push hard to breach the defence of this Venezia lineup who should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even contest with a 1-0 victory for Venezia at the conclusion of the game.
A close call.
