Roma vs Venezia Italy – Serie A Date: Saturday, 14 May 2022 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
Three teams, of which one is Roma, are fighting it out with each other in this final stretch of the season for the 6th position, which would offer an entry into the next edition of the Europa League.
The three squads are, the sixth-placed Roma, the 7th placed Fiorentina, and the 8th placed Atalanta. All these teams have 59 points on the board, and with just two games remaining in the competition, the race has entered an unprecedented level of nervousness.
It goes without saying that the remaining six points are of utmost importance for all three teams, and count on Jose Mourinho’s men to give their absolute best on the pitch for the win this weekend.
And it needs to be mentioned that it is such a blessing that they are at home, and are pitted against the absolute worst team in the Italian top flight this year.
Venezia are placed 20th in a table of 20, and they need a surplus of six points in order to climb over the cut off. Which means, even if they go on a perfect winning record for the rest of the season, they will only have a mathematical chance of extending their stay in the Italian league.
They already have a poor defense, and now they are forced to go for the win. By all means, Roma are going to take advantage of this situation, and try and post a huge win.

Roma vs Venezia Prediction & Analysis
Roma did lose 2-0 on the road the last matchday, against Fiorentina. But they were unbeaten in 19 of their past 23 overall fixtures, and most importantly they are on an 11-game unbeaten streak at home.
Of these seven were wings, and they had also won four of their last five home games.
On the other hand, Venezia did win 4-3 at home the past game week against Bologna. But they were on a 10-fixture losing streak before that, and they are also on a 6-game losing streak on the road.
Do also note that they have won just thrice on the road in the past 12-month period.
Taking into account these observations, count on Roma to win against this newly-promoted team to the top flight.
