The two newly promoted sides Venezia and Salernitana clash on Tuesday, when Stefano Colantuono gets a chance to make up for the horrid start against Empoli.

The midweek round of fixtures starts in Venice, when the two newly promoted sides clash in Serie A Week 10.

Venezia lost Gianluca Busio during the match against Sassuolo last time and he will most likely miss the next game against the Granata this week.

Colantuono struggles with a host of absentees but is expected to make some changes ahead of the crucial match in the relegation battle.

Salernitana are bottom with four points from nine games, with Paolo Zanetti’s men at 16th in Serie A with eight points.
