Both sides were promoted from Serie B last season, and the hosts have had a steady start to the campaign, picking up eight points, which leaves them in 16th place, whereas Salernitana have only collected four points, leaving them rooted to the foot of the table.
Venezia sit two places above the relegation zone, but they will be content with their start to life in Serie A, and they will look to collect their third league victory of the season on Tuesday.
An unbeaten three-game run that included two draws and a win came to an end at the weekend, when Venezia fell to a 3-1 defeat to Sassuolo.
In that encounter, David Okereke scored his second goal of the season to give Venezia the lead, but goals for Domenico Berardi and Davide Frattesi came either side of Thomas Henry's own goal to give Sassuolo the three points.
Paolo Zanetti's side have only scored two or more goals in Serie A on one occasion this term, which came in a 2-1 win over Empoli.
Although, Venezia have fared well in their previous two home games, drawing 1-1 with Torino, before edging out Fiorentina to win 1-0.
The new boss started with a home encounter with Empoli at the weekend, but his return as head coach did not go to plan with Salernitana suffering a 4-2 defeat.
Colantuono will now turn his attention to Tuesday's encounter with Venezia, where Salernitana will be aiming to collect their first point of the season.
The visitors will be boosted by the fact that they have won their last three fixtures against Venezia, which included a 2-1 away win last season in Serie B.
The home side will be without Lauri Ala-Myllymaki, who is unavailable due to a knee problem.
Sergio Romero has started in goal in the last two encounters and the former Manchester United player will keep his place for Tuesday.
Venezia possible starting lineup:
Romero; Ebuehi, Svoboda, Ceccaroni, Haps; Crnigoj, Peretz, Ampadu; Aramu, Henry, Okereke
Salernitana possible starting lineup:
Belec; Zortea, Strandberg, Jaroszynski; Kechrida, Kastanos, Di Tacchio, Ranieri; Ribery, Simy, Bonazzoli
We say: Venezia 1-1 Salernitana
Both teams will be hopeful of picking up something from this encounter, and we think that Salernitana will cause Venezia enough problems, to pick up their first away point of the season.
