Venezia played in the semifinals of Serie A in 2014 and 2015, but this club began to experience a real renaissance at the moment when Walter de Raffaele became head coach in 2016. Already in the first season, he won the title with Venezia, and two years later this club once again became the champion of Italy. In 2020, they managed to win the Italian Cup when they beat Brindisi in the final. The great advantage of Venezia lies in the fact that almost the entire team has been together for several years. Players like Mitchell Watt, Austin Daye, Michael Bramos, Julyan Stone, Stefan Tonut, and Andrea De Nicolao have been at the club for at least four years and when that is the case, it makes sense to make a good result. This season, Venezia has played perhaps the weakest in coach De Raffaelo era, but they still have time to fix things. After winning the first game in this series against Tortona on road, it seemed that this would be an easy task for them, but they were defeated in the next two duels and in order to qualify for the Serie A semifinals, they will have to win the next two games.


For the first time in the club’s history, Tortona qualified for Serie A this season. Although many expected this club would fight to avoid relegation, this was never the case. Tortona was the most pleasant surprise of the regular season, which they finished in a high fourth place. The core of the team are six American players: J.P. Macura, Mike Daum, Jamarr Sanders, Chris Wright, Tyler Cain, and Jalen Cannon. Of the Italian players, by far the biggest role have Ariel Filloy (former Venezia player). Sanders and Cannon were on the team last year when Tortona played in Serie B, while all the other players arrived last summer which is proof of how good job the club management and head coach Marco Ramondino has done. Tortona has fulfilled its ambitions for this season by surviving in the league, and the placement in the playoffs is a big bonus. It should be mentioned that they even reached the Italian Cup final, where they were defeated by Milan, even though they defeated Virtus 94:82 in the semifinals. That says it all about what kind of work has been done at the club this season.


Venezia and Tortona played twice against each other in the regular season and both times the home team won. Currently, Tortona leads 2-1 in Serie A quarterfinals, and the series is being played at the best of 5. If Venezia tie this series, deciding game will be played in Tortona.


Austin Daye missed all three games in this series so far and he is questionable for Venezia. All other players in both teams are available.

Venezia vs. Tortona Prediction

This will be a “win or go home” game for Venezia and their experience should come to the fore this time. The most realistic outcome for this series is to see a maximum of five games, and it is to be expected that the home team will win this time.
