Stephen Okereke’s goal against AS Roma was not enough to save Venezia from suffering relegation

A difficult season that has seen the Venice-based team win just six times in 37 games has ensured they will be playing in the Serie B next season.

Venezia have struggled all season and were hoping for a last dose of miracle against AS Roma on Saturday.

Okereke’s first minute goal had set the tone for a good evening but a 32nd minute red card for Sofiane Kiyine meant Venezia would do without the ball for majority of the contest.

Roma didn’t get their equaliser until the 76th minute as Venezia brought on Tyrone Ebuehi four minutes later.

Venezia’s relegation fight is sealed as they are currently sitting 20th on the log, four points away from the 17th-placed Salernitana with just one game left.
