Venezia will play against Roma at the Pier Luigi Penzo stadium in a Serie A match on Sunday.
Venezia entered the match after a 0-0 draw against Genoa Davide Ballardini in the league. Genoa dominated the lion’s share of possession and had several shots on goal, but Venezia managed to prevent them from finding the net.
On the other hand, Roma drew 2-2 against Bodo/Glimt Kjetil Knutsen in the UEFA Conference League group stage. Goals from striker Ola Solbakken and young striker Eric Bothheim for Bodo/Glimt were canceled out by goals from Italian wing Stephan El Shaarawy and Brazilian center back Roger Ibanez for Roma.
