Venezia host Cagliari at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo in Serie A on Sunday, with the visitors needing a win to have a chance of avoiding relegation.

Venezia are at the bottom of the league and have already been relegated to Serie B. Andrea Soncin's side have been in poor form recently, having lost three of their last five games. They will look to end their time in Serie A on a good note, with a win against Cagliari on Sunday.

Cagliari are 18th in the league, two points off Salernitana in 17th. Alessandro Agostini's side have been woeful of late and are winless in their last four games. They know that they will need to win the game and Salernitana will have to lose their encounter to ensure survival.

Andrea Soncin: “Despite our relegation, what we have built this season is a fundamental learning experience for everyone. The kind of growth that we've had this year is something we can build on to achieve very important results.”#ArancioNeroVerde 🟠⚫️🟢

Cagliari will know that this is a great opportunity to help their chances of survival with a win against a poor Venezia side.
