Venezia vs Padova
Italy – Serie B.
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Pierluigi Penzo (Venice).
The Winged Lions are unbeaten in their last 2 matches with both ending as draws. Being 13th in the table is a tough place because they are just 4 points away from the play-out spot.
At present the Lagoonal Ones are without a win in their last 5 league games both home and away. Two of those games were defeats and 3 of those matches ended with the same score 1-1. In their last 7 matches across all venues, the final score had less than 2.5 goals in total. At home, a 3 match win streak was active before the loss against Cosenza. Still, they are a well-balanced team but needs a bit improvement in defense.
Padova is already at in the relegation zone after 19 matches are completed in the Serie B. After getting promoted this season this is the worst possible start they could hope for. They finally won a game recently, after a 6 match winless run against Verona at home.
All 5 of their recent matches on the road saw both the sides scoring. Also, four of those games had over 2.5 goals at the full time with the common score in 3 games is 3-2. The mess in defense needed to be sorted out by the manager Pierpaolo Bisoli, or else his side is going back to the third tier next season.
