Monday at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo, as Venezia host Torino in the Serie A.

Monday’s clash at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo- sees ninth placed Torino, travel to eighteenth-placed Venezia in the Serie A.

Struggling Venezia, welcome fancied Torino this Monday

Paolo Zanetti will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Getting out of a relegation battle requires a string of positive results, but Paolo Zanetti’s men know that four losses in five fixtures is a run of form that will be hard to turn around. Their position is eighteenth in the League, and they have three points having won one game and lost four games.

Playing at home, Venezia have lost one game.

Venezia will have 6 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Venezia’s squad will likely be depleted of four of their key players when they start on Monday, due to injury or illness.

Torino arrive at this match, having secured seven points so far this season

Following a 1-1 draw against Lazio, Torino will be hoping for more.

Torino keep finding ways to win, having secured two victories in their last three matches is astonishing this season. They currently sit in ninth place, with a total of seven points having won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost two meetings.

Torino have won one game and lost one game of their two League matches playing away this season.

A victory for Torino would put them on 10 points.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Torino, in terms of goals scored (8). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Marko Pjaca (2), Bremer (1), and Tommaso Pobega (1). Torino have conceded five goals.

Ivan Juric will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of four of his Torino players.

The likelihood of both sides getting on the scoresheet again in Stadio Pierluigi Penzo is rated at 57.14%.

Torino are odds on to win at 48.31 percent.
