Serie A has begun rounding up and will see Salernitana host Venezia at the Stadio Arechi on Thursday evening in their rescheduled league clash.

Salernitana are enjoying a good run at the moment in their pursuit of survival. They held Atalanta to a 1-1 draw last time out and perhaps deserved more from the game but had to settle for the sole point.

Salernitana sit 18th in the Serie A standings with 26 points from 34 games. They can exit the drop zone with a win on Thursday and will be looking to do just that.

Venezia, on the other hand, are in abysmal form and could soon be confirmed as the first relegated side. They were beaten 2-1 by Italian giants Juventus in their last game, with their second-half leveler lasting just five minutes before the Bianconeri scored the winner.

The visitors remain rock-bottom in the league table with just 22 points. They will be looking to return to winning ways this week to save their rapidly sinking campaign.

Salernitana vs Venezia Head-to-Head

Thursday's game will mark the 20th meeting between Salernitana and Venezia. The hosts have won eight of those games, while the visitors have won one fewer. There have been four draws between the two teams.

The two sides last faced off in a league clash back in October last year, which Salernitana won 2-1.

Salernitana vs Venezia Prediction

Salernitana have won three of their last four league games after winning just one of their 20 games prior. They will be targeting maximum points in a crucial encounter against a fellow relegation battler on Thursday.

Venezia are on a nine-game losing streak and have won just one of their last 21 league outings. The hosts should win this one.

Prediction: Salernitana 2-1 Venezia
