With just four rounds until the end of the Serie A campaign, Juventus welcome Venezia at Allianz Stadium in an attempt to book a place in the Champions League for next season. In theory, the Bianconeri are even still in the Scudetto race thanks to a crucial 2-1 win away to Sassuolo last week, while Venezia are rock-bottom after losing each of their last eight games.

Last time: Mattia Aramu’s second half strike spoiled the party for Juventus, as Venezia held the Bianconeri to a 1-1 draw at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo back in December.
Juventus v Venezia Predictions and Preview
Juventus will be eager to get a win on home soil this weekend, after failing to do so in two consecutive games at the Allianz Stadium. The painful 1-0 defeat to Inter was followed by a 1-1 draw against Bologna, so Max Allegri and his men owe a victory to the crowd in Turin.
Welcoming a struggling Venezia side, gives the Bianconeri the perfect opportunity to do so, but Paolo Zanetti’s men already frustrated the the Old Lady in the first game. However, Juventus undoubtedly have momentum on their side, as a late Moise Kean striker earned them a 2-1 away to Sassuolo last week, which means that Allegri’s side are almost certain participants in next year’s Champions League.
As things stand, Juventus are currently fourth with 66 points, holding an eight-points lead over fifth-place Roma. However, Venezia wouldn’t want to look at the standing right now, as the Winged Lions are now at the bottom of the table with 22 points, after failing to win each of their last nine games. Zanetti’s side were beaten 3-1 by Atalanta last week and need a miracle to avoid relegation.
Juventus vs. Venezia full time result odds
A few weeks ago it seemed like the Bianconeri’s injury crisis had eased off, but might have to do with no less than nine first-team players against Venezia. Federico Chiesa, Weston McKennie, Juan Cuadrado, Arthur, Manuel Locatelli, Marley Ake are definitely out because of different issues, while Paulo Dybala and Mattia De Sciglio are serious doubts.
This means that Danilo will once again continue in midfield, as the Brazilian defender has been deputizing with mix success there throughout the season. Despite all this, the hosts are heavy 2/9 favourites to get another three points and it’s impossible to look beyond anything than three points for Allegri’s side in these Juventus vs Venezia tips.
Meanwhile, Venezia will have to do without goalkeeping duo Luca Lezzerini and Sergio Romero, as well as Tyronne Ebuehi, Antonio Vacca Junior and Marco Modolo, who are all injured. However, even if they were at full strength, Venezia’s chances would be extremely slim and odds of 16/1 seem to do them justice.
Juventus vs. Venezia win to nil odds
Each of Juventus’ last eight home victories were to nil and a repeat of that scenario on Sunday seems like a logical choice. This makes even more sense when looking at Venezia’s recent record on the road, as Paolo Zanetti’s men lost four in a row and failed to find the back of the net in their last three. Therefore our suggestion is to place a bet for a Juventus victory to nil, available at 19/20 in our preview.
Juventus vs. Venezia correct score odds
Five of Juventus’ last six home victories in Serie A saw the Bianconeri win by 2-0, while the same applies for their last game in Turin – a 2-0 win over Fiorentina in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final. Considering their recent results, our pick is a 2-0 victory for the hosts available at 6/1 in these Juventus vs. Venezia tips.
Juventus vs. Venezia first goalscorer odds
Dusan Vlahovic came off the bench and failed to find the back of the net against Sassuolo, but the Serbian will be in Allegri’s starting XI against Venezia. The Serbian forward has 23 goals to his name and is 11/4 to break the deadlock on Sunday, while the odds raise to 25/1 if he does so and Juventus end up winning 2-0.
