Venezia are set to play Juventus at the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo on Saturday in Serie A.

Venezia come into this game on the back of a 4-3 loss to Igor Tudor's Hellas Verona in the league. An own goal from French striker Thomas Henry, a penalty from forward Gianluca Caprari and a brace from Argentine striker Giovanni Simeone sealed the deal for Hellas Verona.

Goals from centre-back Pietro Ceccaroni, Slovenian midfielder Domen Crnigoj and former OH Leuven striker Thomas Henry proved to be a mere consolation for Venezia, who had Ceccaroni sent off in the second-half.

Juventus, on the other hand, beat Andriy Shevchenko's Genoa in their most recent league game. Goals from Colombia international Juan Cuadrado and Argentine attacker Paulo Dybala secured the win for Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus.

Venezia vs Juventus Prediction

Venezia are 16th in Serie A, five points ahead of 18th-placed Cagliari. They have produced some good performances this season, but come into this game on the back of three consecutive losses in the league.

Juventus, on the other hand, are 5th in the league, 11 points behind league leaders AC Milan. The Old Lady endured a poor start to the season and manager Massimiliano Allegri clearly has a tough job in his hands of rebuilding this Juventus side.

Juventus, for all their negatives, should have enough to win here.

Prediction: Venezia 0-2 Juventus
