This weekend in Serie A, Paolo Zanetti’s Venezia and Aurelio Andreazzoli’s Empoli lock horns at the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo.

Empoli suffered a humiliating 5-1 home loss to Sassuolo last time out, but Andreazzoli’s men are fancied to bounce back in this one. These two teams were promoted together from Serie B last season, but who will win this one? Keep reading for the latest odds and top tips.

Venezia Preview – Can the hosts secure first win since November?

Venezia will be desperate to avoid an instant return to the second tier. Last term, the Winged Lions secured their spot in the 2021-22 Serie A season after winning promotion via the play-off spots in Serie B.

To their credit, Venezia have been competitive all season and find themselves above the drop zone at the time of writing. Paolo Zanetti’s troops have collected 17 points from 20 games, winning four, drawing five and losing 11. However, since back-to-back wins over Roma and Bologna, they are winless in seven in Serie A.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0827 GMT, Saturday 15 January)

After suffering five losses and drawing two of their past seven league matches, Venezia could do with a positive result from this one. The home victory is priced at 13/8.

Empoli Preview – Will the Blues strike back with a big three points?

Empoli recently went on a run of four wins and a draw from five league and cup matches. However, the Tuscany club are without a victory in four since beating Verona in the Coppa Italia on 15th December.

Since returning to action from the Christmas break, Empoli have taken just one point from a possible six. They picked up a handy 3-3 draw at Lazio but were embarrassed by Sassuolo last time out. The 5-1 home reverse last Sunday was their biggest defeat of the season.
