Remove the Lazio defeat and Inter have enjoyed a lot of success away from home this season, which has been built on their defensive solidity.

Venezia stunned Roma at the Pier Luigi Penzo Stadium earlier this season, but the Nerazzurri are a more streetwise outfit than Jose Mourinho’s side and should be able to manage the game better.

Prediction: Venezia 0-2 Inter
