The Serie A tie at Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo on Monday will see home side Venezia doing battle with Torino.
Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Venezia v Torino can be found here (plus the best game odds).
Venezia will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 2-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against AC Milan.
In that match, Venezia had 33% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, AC Milan got 15 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Brahim Díaz (68') and Theo Hernández (82') scored for AC Milan.
Venezia have really been misfiring of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 4 versus opposing sides during the course of their previous six matches. In those meetings, Venezia have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 11. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this game, of course.
Analysis of their past results shows that Venezia:
- have not won against Torino in their previous 3 league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.
Last time out, Torino drew 1-1 in the Serie A tie with Lazio.
In that game, Torino had 46% possession and 16 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Torino was Marko Pjaca (76'). At the other end, Lazio had 6 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Ciro Immobile (91') scored for Lazio.
In the course of their 6 previous matches, Ivan Jurić's Torino have slotted home 8 times thus giving them the goals per game average of 1.33.
Head to head
Checking on their past head to head clashes stretching back to 23/12/2001 shows us that Venezia have won 2 of these games & Torino 1, with the tally of drawn games being 3.
A total of 13 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 6 of them for Arancioneroverdi and 7 for Il Toro. That’s an average goals per game of 2.17.

Luca Lezzerini (Thigh Problems), Arnór Sigurdsson (Muscular problems), Ridgeciano Haps (Muscular problems) and Lauri Ala-Myllymäki (Knee Surgery) will not be able to play for Venezia manager 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.
Team News: Torino
Torino manager Ivan Jurić has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Simone Edera (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Ben Lhassine Kone (Bruised Knee), Marko Pjaca (Calf Injury), Andrea Belotti (Peroneus tendon injury), Simone Zaza (Knee Injury) and Dennis Praet (Biceps femoris muscle injury) are those who can’t be considered. Ola Aina will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’re of the opinion that Venezia might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this Torino outfit who we reckon should just have the edge.
Our tip is therefore for a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Torino when the referee blows for full-time.
Hoping for a good game.
