Both sides head into the game on a run of three consecutive defeats and will be seeking to claim a pick-me-up and steer clear of the relegation places.
Venezia failed to move out of the relegation zone last Monday as they fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Lazio.
They have now lost each of their most recent three games, while picking up just one win from their last 12 in all competitions.
This poor run has seen Venezia drop to 18th place in the Serie A table after picking up 22 points from 28 games.
Like Venezia, Sampdoria were left empty-handed once again as they fell to a 3-1 home defeat against Juventus.
They have also now lost three games on the trot, conceding nine goals and scoring two since a 2-0 win over Empoli on February 19.
With 26 points from 29 games, Sampdoria are currently 16th on the log, four points and two places above Sunday’s hosts.
