Venezia vs Fiorentina: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Venezia lost the first two games of Serie A to Napoli (0:2) and Udinese (0:3). In the third round, Paolo Zanetti's charges had an excellent match against Empoli and recorded their first victory of the season away from home (2:1).
Venezia couldn't build on that success; in the following rounds, the team was defeated by Spezia (1:2) and AC Milan (0:2) and sank to the bottom of the standings. However, in the last rounds, the Winged Lions earned two points, having tied with Torino (1:1) and Cagliari (1:1), and climbed to the 18th line.
Fiorentina are striving to get into the European club competition. Vincenzo Italiano's men had a solid start to the season; after losing the first fixture against Roma (1:3), the Violets mounted a three-game winning streak, beating Torino, Atalanta, and Genoa with the same score of 2:1.
Fiorentina looked good against the reigning champions Inter Milan and even were in the lead after the first half, but then Inter netted three goals and secured a win. In the last rounds, the Violets defeated Udinese (1:0) and lost to Napoli (1:2), keeping the sixth line in the table. Juventus, Atalanta, and Bologna are just one point behind Fiorentina.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 7 games of Fiorentina.
In the last 3 games of Fiorentina, this bet played.

Fiorentina have so far lost points only in matches against equally strong teams or more powerful opponents. Venezia is definitely not one of them. The hosts have a big disadvantage in class and we don't think that they can put up a fight against the Violets today.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Fiorentina

Venezia have looked poor in this season; they regularly make mistakes on the defensive and show the worst attacking performance in the league, having scored only 5 goals in 7 games. Fiorentina are the favorites of the match and the Violets should have no trouble getting a victory here.
Our second bet - Fiorentina to win by 2 goals
