Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Venezia will be looking to extend their winning run to three games when they host Empoli at their Stadio Pierluigi Penzo. Venezia have been impressive in the Serie B after the coronavirus break, and thanks to a 2-0 win at Livorno they moved one step closer to securing the survival. Considering that talented midfielder Fabrizio Caligara returns from suspension, we believe that home win should be considered.
Empoli failed to win the previous four league fixtures. The Blues do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the trip to Venice, and they are likely to return home empty-handed. Even though defender Simone Pinna has overcome his injury, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the high-flying hosts. In their last home game in the Serie B Venezia recorded a 2-1 win over Ascoli.
