Venezia vs Inter MilanSerie A, KO: 19:45 Nov 27, 2021, Stadio Pierluigi Penzo
Inter Milan will be looking to crank up the pressure on the leaders as they travel to Venezia for an Italian Serie A fixture on Saturday. The champions are beginning to show glimpses of their title winning form and should grab the points here.
Having made a slow start to the season, the task for Venezia at the moment will be to avoid being dragged into a relegation scrap. They are beginning to ease away from the bottom three and now hold a six-point gap having won their last two matches.
Venezia head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 win over Bologna last time out in Serie A with David Okereke getting the goal. It was a good follow up to their impressive 3-2 victory over Roma in their previous fixture.
While manager Paolo Zanetti will be pleased with his team’s recent showings, their home form remains a source of worry. They have claimed only two wins in front of their fans this season and have been beaten by strugglers Spezia and Salernitana on home soil this term.
Napoli and AC Milan’s failure to win last time out, means Inter Milan are now just four points off the pace in Serie A.
Incidentally, it was Inter Milan who accounted for Napoli’s first Serie A defeat of the season as they claimed a 3-2 victory last time out. Simone Inzaghi’s men followed that up with a 2-0 triumph over Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Both results mean Inter Milan are now unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions, claiming six wins in that run. They also travel to Venezia with three victories from their last four Serie A matches.
