Venezia vs Perugia
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 31 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Pierluigi Penzo.
I Lagunari are placed 13th in the table, just two points above the relegation cut-off, while their opponents for the day, the Griffins are placed 15th in the table. The latter have 45 points against their name, and are level in terms of points, with the 16th placed Pescara.
In short, this final match-day is a battle for survival for all these teams mentioned, and we can expect them to fight as if their lives were on the line.
Alessio Dionisi’s men need a draw to ensure their safety, while their counterparts need a win at any cost.
In that sense, the visitors of the day are under more pressure. Consider this, along with the fact that I Lagunari have been better in terms of recent form – and we arrive to the inference that Venezia are about to record a win this Friday.
Venezia vs Perugia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Dionisi’s men registered a 0-1 win on the road in the reverse fixture.
- They have lost just twice since 2005 against this rival.
- Two of the previous four encounters had three or more goals.
- Seven of the preceding ten clashes at this stadium saw the home team scoring two or more goals.
Venezia vs Perugia: Prediction
The Griffins need a win this weekend at the least, and are under enormous pressure. On top of that, they were winless in seven of their last eight overall match-ups. On the road, they were winless in nine of their former twelve trips as well.
However, their opposite number were unbeaten in seven of their last nine overall match-ups, and they had also won the reverse h2h fixture (that too on the road with a clean sheet).
Finally, Massimo Oddo’s men have a total of just two wins against this rival in the past 15 years. Taking these stats into account, expect Venezia to post a convincing win this Friday.
