|At the end of the eighth matchday of the Italian Serie A, Venezia will face Fiorentina. While, Fiorentina get stuck in the upper third, rising stars Venezia are almost at the bottom of the table. With a record of one win, two draws and four defeats, Paolo Zanetti's team is second to last in the table. Especially offensively, the hosts only score five goals, making it the worst attack in Serie A. The gap to 12th place is just three points. Venezia should count very much on their home game to win points. But in the previous two home games they've only managed to win one point. Fiorentina has scored at least one goal in every league game of the new season so far. After the two defeats against Inter and Napoli, Vincenzo Italiano's team has lost touch with the top of the table and is now 12 points behind leaders Napoli. Overall, the last three away games have been won in a row. There is no doubt that they are in the role of favorites against Venezia.
