TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 18
Sticking with the Serie A after yesterday’s with Juventus defeating Roma as we turn our attention to struggling Venezia up against Fiorentina.
As expected, Venezia are struggling after gaining promotion to the top flight, winning just one of their seven games to be languishing in second-last spot on the ladder.
Venezia have scored the least amount of goals in the competition (five) and will almost certainly be in a relegation battle all season.
Meanwhile, Fiorentina have enjoyed a great start to the season – in fact, it’s their best across the first seven games in three years.
Fiorentina are sitting in eighth spot (a win here would lift them into fifth), with their three defeats this season all coming against teams currently in the top four (Napoli, AC Milan and Roma).
Fiorentina have won their other four games and importantly for this clash, their last three victories have all come away against Atalanta, Genoa and Udinese.
Fiorentina have been quick starters as well, scoring before half-time in seven of their last 11 league away fixtures.
If they can claim an early lead once more, Venezia will struggle considering they have only scored five goals all season and have failed to score after half-time in their last five home league outings.
Overall, Fiorentina are by far the superior team and their great away form suggests they shouldn’t have much trouble bagging all three points in this clash.
- Venezia have won just one of their seven games this season
- Venezia have scored just five goals in their seven games this season (league low)
- Fiorentina have won their last three straight away games
- Fiorentina have only lost to teams currently in the top four this season
- Venezia are second last on the ladder
- Fiorentina have scored before half-time in seven of their last 11 away games in Serie A
