Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Serie A clash between Venezia and Salernitana, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

The two lowest scorers in Serie A this season will face each other in Serie A on Tuesday, when Venezia welcome Salernitana to the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo.

Both sides were promoted from Serie B last season, and the hosts have had a steady start to the campaign, picking up eight points, which leaves them in 16th place, whereas Salernitana have only collected four points, leaving them rooted to the foot of the table.

Match preview

Venezia sit two places above the relegation zone, but they will be content with their start to life in Serie A, and they will look to collect their third league victory of the season on Tuesday.

An unbeaten three-game run that included two draws and a win came to an end at the weekend, when Venezia fell to a 3-1 defeat to Sassuolo.

In that encounter, David Okereke scored his second goal of the season to give Venezia the lead, but goals for Domenico Berardi and Davide Frattesi came either side of Thomas Henry's own goal to give Sassuolo the three points.

Paolo Zanetti's side have only scored two or more goals in Serie A on one occasion this term, which came in a 2-1 win over Empoli.

Although, Venezia have fared well in their previous two home games, drawing 1-1 with Torino, before edging out Fiorentina to win 1-0.

Four points from their first eight games resulted in Salernitana relieving Fabrizio Castori of his duties, and Stefano Colantuono took over to begin his second reign as head coach.

The new boss started with a home encounter with Empoli at the weekend, but his return as head coach did not go to plan with Salernitana suffering a 4-2 defeat.

It was a disastrous first half, which saw Salernitana go into half time 4-0 down, but a Luca Ranieri goal and Ardian Ismajli own goal did restore some respectability to the scoreline.

Colantuono will now turn his attention to Tuesday's encounter with Venezia, where Salernitana will be aiming to collect their first point of the season.

The visitors will be boosted by the fact that they have won their last three fixtures against Venezia, which included a 2-1 away win last season in Serie B.

Team News

The home side will be without Lauri Ala-Myllymaki, who is unavailable due to a knee problem.

Zanetti is hopeful that Mattia Aramu will be available for the Salernitana clash, but Luca Fiordilino will not be present, with the midfielder still out with a hernia injury.

Sergio Romero has started in goal in the last two encounters and the former Manchester United player will keep his place for Tuesday.

Salernitana have numerous injury problems that they will need to contend with, and two of those absentees are Lassana Coulibaly and Matteo Ruggeri, who both have hamstring injuries.

Leonardo Capezzi and Luka Bogdan are both absent due to injury, while Frederic Veseli is still unavailable after testing positive for COVID-19 when he returned from international duty with Albania.

Colantuono could bring Federico Bonazzoli into the starting lineup to partner Simy upfront, and that means Cedric Gondo will drop to the bench.

Venezia possible starting lineup:
Romero; Ebuehi, Svoboda, Ceccaroni, Haps; Crnigoj, Peretz, Ampadu; Aramu, Henry, Okereke

Salernitana possible starting lineup:
Belec; Zortea, Strandberg, Jaroszynski; Kechrida, Kastanos, Di Tacchio, Ranieri; Ribery, Simy, Bonazzoli

We say: Venezia 1-1 Salernitana

Both teams will be hopeful of picking up something from this encounter, and we think that Salernitana will cause Venezia enough problems, to pick up their first away point of the season.
