The two teams at the top of the table will have an exciting duel on matchday 2 of Serie B. The visitors had three more players on the pitch in their last game, so we’ll see if they will be able to get the win on level terms. Check out our Venezia vs Cosenza prediction to place the best bet.
The best betting tips and Venezia vs Cosenza predictions
Venezia to win
The visiting team had a big win in the first matchday but had a big advantage after their opponents lost 3 players. If that hadn’t happened they probably wouldn’t have won with such a comfortable result.
The home team were solid in their first game, both defence and midfield did their job very well. I think The Winged Lions will get their second win and stay in the lead for a game.
Both teams to score
One of the things we appreciated in Cosenza’s last game is that from the start they tried to get ahead on the scoreboard, and had some interesting approaches. On this occasion maybe I didn’t score 3, but it wouldn’t be unusual for me to score at least one.
The preseason had good results, Venezia had a good collective work, and scored chances easily. There is no doubt that they will score again, so I hope to see BTTS in this duel.
Venezia to score first
The home team was the first to score in 4 of their last 5 head-to-heads, in fact in each of them they went into half-time on top. The home side have not lost any of the last seven h2h.
The Lions have not kept a clean sheet in their last 3 head-to-head meetings. The latest Venezia vs Cosenza prediction is that the home side will open the scoring.
Venezia vs Cosenza match preview and latest team news
The Winged Lions played their first match in spectacular fashion, winning 3-0 at home to Como. That result allowed them to start as leaders of the competition.
All players performed excellently, but without a doubt the best player of the match was attacking midfielder Nicholas Pierini who scored the first two goals. Captain and striker Joel Pohjanpalo also put his name on the scoresheet, scoring the third goal to seal the match.
The Wolves got off to a great start with a 3-1 win over Ascoli in the first matchday, and are currently leading Serie B in Italy. Coach Fabio Caserta is aware that he cannot be complacent with the result as his opponents played much of the game with three men.
Gennaro Tutino opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 20th minute. In the last 10 minutes of the first half, Ascoli received three red cards. Alessandro Arioli and Massimo scored the other two goals in the second half.
Venezia vs Cosenza h2h and stats
Recent head-to-head meetings have favoured The Winged Lions, who won the last two home games and drew both times they visited The Wolves.
