Venezia and Fiorentina will meet in the 8th round of Serie A. Venezia has two draws in a row, 17th place is not commendable, and the goal this season is to fight for survival. Fiorentina plays changeable, by no means to show the continuity of good games, and coach Vincenzo Italiano is on the big exam.

Reason for Venezia vs Fiorentina Predictions
The Venice coach still has to deal with the packages of potential holders Lezzerini and Sigurdsson and the replacement defender Haps. The promoted shows real lacks in the offensive sector and only scored four goals in the first six rounds (20th attack in the championship). On the bench for the last two days, French striker Thomas Henry, who arrived this summer from Leuven, is available. Note that the former Manchester United and Argentina team goalkeeper Sergio Romero has just signed for the club. It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Venezia has kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Venezia has failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous six clashes, giving up ten goals during that time. Gianluca Busio plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
The defection of important midfielder Castrovilli further undermines Fiorentina. In addition, the potential holders Venuti and Saponora are uncertain. On the other hand, the winger recruited this summer Gonzalez (ex Stuttgart), is back after serving his suspension. Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic (21 league goals last year) is a must for Viola. Last weekend, it was again he who gave victory to his team by scoring his 4th Serie A goal. He should be supported by playmaker Bonaventura and wingers Callejon and Saponara. Fiorentina is rarely involved in away games in which both teams find the net, with this being the case in just one of their previous seven trips in the Serie A. In their last six clashes, Fiorentina has helped themselves to a total of 9 goals. Fiorentina has also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. In that time, their defenders have seen eight goals go against them. We will just have to find out if that trend can be sustained in this game. Nicolas Gonzalez is a great player, he creates many problems for his opponents, and this guy’s greatest virtue is speed. Many clubs are interested in this guy. Jose Callejon found the right role in the team, he moves great, and it is not easy for the guy to take the ball away.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. One thing is for sure – football fans should enjoy this game.
