Tip Reasoning

  • Venezia have lost their last five Serie A games, losing to fellow relegation-battlers Sampdoria and Spezia on their last two outings.
  • Udinese have only lost one of their last six league matches.
  • The Zebrette hammered Venezia 3-0 in the return fixture, all the way back in August.

Struggling Venezia need a result

A tense trip to Spezia brought a 1-0 defeat for Venezia, their fifth in succession in Serie A and their 10th in their last 13 league outings. Paolo Zanetti’s team remain just three points adrift of safety with a game in hand as we enter the Serie A run-in, but are the division’s most out-of-form side ahead of Sunday’s clash with Udinese.

Venezia’s last two defeats saw them go down to 15th-placed Spezia and 16th-placed Sampdoria, and Zanetti’s side have now failed to score in three consecutive outings, worrying signs for the club from the floating city. Furthermore, Venezia look unable to rely on their home form to guide them to safety, having drawn two and lost five of their last seven on their own ground.

Udinese, who battered Venezia 3-0 in August’s return fixture, remain in contention for an unlikely top-half finish after their improvement under caretaker Gabriele Cioffi, who is looking to keep the job on a permanent basis. The Zebrette have only lost one of their last six league games, a turnaround reverse at title-chasing Napoli, and hammered Cagliari 5-1 last time out.

Zebrette worth backing against struggling opponents

With Udinese available at a decent price, punters are advised to back the visitors for victory, considering the dire form of the hosts and the solid showings of Cioffi’s men.

With the home side failing to score in their last three games and creating the second-lowest expected goals (xG) tally in Serie A this season (a paltry 28.1 xG in 30 games), a 1-0 away win could represent a decent correct score prediction.
