Free match tips from Punditfeed for Venezia vs Como

Venezia and Como are set to face each other in the first round of Serie B at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo on Sunday, 20 August. Both the Winged Ones and the Blues come into this game after suffering defeats in Copa Italia against Spezia and Lecce respectively.

Venezia to win

Venezia has registered four consecutive Serie B victories at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo before this league fixture in front of the home crowd. On the other hand, Como is winless in the last eight road fixtures in the league while losing two of them. Adding more, Venezia has also gone undefeated in the recent four H2Hs against Como at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo while winning two of them. Therefore, we back the Winged Ones to claim all three points in this game.

Over 2.5 goals

Como has scored an average of just one goal per game in the last five road fixtures in Serie B. However, Venezia has been great in this regard and thrashed 14 goals in the previous four league outings at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo. Both teams have also conceded goals in four of their previous five matches in the Italian second division. Furthermore, three of the previous four H2Hs of these two sides at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Given these numbers, we can predict a total of Over 2.5 Goals as our second pick for this game.

Correct score: 2-1 to Venezia

Como has found the back of the net just once in three of the previous five matches in Serie B. However, Venezia has been prolific in front of the target and scored multiple goals in each of the previous four league outings at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo. In the home H2Hs against the Blues, the Winged Ones rattled the net more than once in three of the recent four meetings. Furthermore, Como has also allowed two goals at the back in three of the previous four road fixtures in Serie B. Based on these statistics, we predict a 2-1 margin for Venezia before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
