Catanzaro vs Venezia prediction and betting tips - May 1, 2024

Tournament: Seria B
Location: Stadio Nicola Ceravolo
Match date: 01.05.2024

In the context of the 36th round of Serie B in Italy on May 1, 2024, a match between Catanzaro and Venezia will take place. The hosts are confidently holding their position in the play-off zone. The same goes for the guests, but they are in third place, hoping to displace one of the leading pairs, more likely Como, and secure direct promotion to the top division of Italy.

Key statistics and trends:

  • Catanzaro scored 21% of their goals between the 31st and 45th minutes.
  • Venezia scored 27% of their goals between the 76th and 90th minutes.
  • Catanzaro has failed to score in 3 out of 17 home matches.

Catanzaro - form analysis: a slight dip over the past month and a half

The "Southern Eagles" haven't been in the spotlight for a while. Even last season, they were playing in the third division of Italy. Now they have exceeded all expectations. Yes, there has been a decline since March: 2 wins and losses with three draws in the last 7 rounds, including a 2-2 draw with Pisa on Friday. But it's already clear that they will definitely participate in the play-offs, and perhaps they have already started conserving energy for that.

Venezia - form analysis: hopes of direct promotion are well-founded

The "Winged Lions" only lost their place in the elite division of Italy in 2022. Last season, they finished eighth at a lower level and immediately exited the play-offs, losing to the eventual play-off winner, Cagliari. Now they are trying to avoid this round and secure direct promotion. They have won 7 out of their last 10 matches, including all 3 recent ones. This allowed them to reduce the gap with Como to a minimum: 67 points against 68.
