Venezia vs Verona Prediction

Consecutive defeats to vastly superior opposition have left Venezia staring over their shoulders in the relegation zone. The newly-promoted side need something from this game to avoid being dragged into a relegation fight.

Verona are within touching distance of the European spots but I Gialloblu tend to struggle on their travels, although finding the back of the net has not been problematic. We are backing the two sides to cancel each other out with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Venezia 1-1 Verona
