Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Friday’s football game between Venezia and Catanzaro will open round 13 of the new Serie B campaign. Venezia aim to build on back-to-back wins over Pisa and Ternana and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Catanzaro. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team, but both Michael Svoboda and Jesse Joronen are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Catanzaro, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Como and Modena in the previous two league matches. The Giallorossi are low on spirits ahead of the trip to Venice and given I Lagunari’s fine form, home win should definitely be considered. To make things even worse for the visiting team, defender Stefano Scognamillo is banned for the match. In their last meeting at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo Venezia defeated Catanzaro 2-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
