Perugia will be looking for a victory that will help them get on track and start the push away from the bottom of the Serie B table, when they play host to Venezia at Stadio Renato Curi on Monday.
While the hosts suffered defeat in their last league match away from home, the visitors head into the new week having taken all three points last time out on their own turf.
Perugia enter the contest off the back of a thrilling 3-2 defeat at the hands of Cagliari in their last league match at the Unipol Domus. While Leornado Pavoletti (two) and Gianluca Lapadula (one) scored for the hosts, Luca Strizzolo and Tiago Casasola scored for Perugia.
Fabrizio Castori’s side have now won one, drawn three and lost one of their last five Serie B matches, leaving them at the bottom of the division on 13 points after 17 matches, six points adrift of their opponents on Monday in the safety of 15th place.

Having not taken the break for the World Cup, Venezia came out on top in their last league match, claiming a 2-0 victory over Cosenza on December 11, with Domen Cmigoj and Tanner Tessmann getting on the scoresheet.
Venezia, as aforementioned, are sitting in 15th place in the league standings having also played 17 matches to collect 19 points, and they are five points adrift on eighth-placed Brescia, the last team inside of the playoff spots.
