Monza finally won their first Serie A point when they held fellow newcomers Lecce to a 1-1 draw last week.

The hosts had opened their first-ever league campaign with five straight losses. But on Sunday, they got a point for their efforts away from home at Stadio Via del Mare.

While they will be disappointed that they could not hold on to win the game having discord the first goal of the game through Stefano Sensi, they will at least be encouraged that they did not lose the game after facing more shots on target than they gave their hosts. 

Stefano Sensi’s goal, which came via a direct free-kick goal, was Monza’s first-ever top-flight away goal. However, the goal spelt the end of head coach Giovanni Stroppa, who was sacked following the result. 

With Monza owner Silvio Berlusconi insisting he would have to personally fix Monza’s tactical issues, it remains to be seen how interim manager Raffaele Palladino will fare against a struggling Juventus side. 

Possible Monza starting line-up

Michele Di Gregorio; Marlon Santos, Pablo Mari Villar, Armando Izzo; Samuele Birindelli, Stefano Sensi, Matteo Pessina, Nicolo Rovella, Carlos Augusto; Gianluca Caprari, Dany Mota. 

Injured: Andrea Ranocchia, Marco D’Alessandro

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 


It has been a rough few weeks for Juventus and Maximiliano Allegri who travel to Monza desperate to end a four-game winless run in all competitions.

The Old Lady have not won a game in the league or in Europe since beating Spezia 2-0 in late August.

Since then they have drawn with Fiorentina (1-1) and Salernitana (2-2) in the league and lost to Paris Saint-Germain and most recently Benfica (2-1) in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

While their 2-2 draw with Salernitana came with a contentious VAR decision, the Old lady cannot claim they deserved anything more than a point given that they were two goals down in the game. 

They travel to Monza without their coach Max Allegri, who was sent off in the game against Salernitana and Arkadiusz Milik and Juan Cuadrado, who both saw red in the game.

Despite their struggles, Juventus remains unbeaten in the league after six rounds of games (W2, D4) and they are only four points behind the leaders Napoli. But the fact that they are winless in their last five competitive away matches (D2, L3) almost diffuses the mood in the visitors’ camp. 

With pressure mounting on his job, Allegri will hope for a happy return as he faces a Monza side that have conceded 14 goals in the league this season. 

Possible Juventus starting line-up

Mattia Perin; Danilo, Leonardo Bonucci, Bremer, Mattia De Sciglio; Weston McKennie, Fabio Miretti, Leandro Paredes; Moise Kean, Dusan Vlahovic, Filip Kostic.

Injured: Adrien Rabiot, Wojciech Szczesny, Marley Ake, Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa, Kaio Jorge, Felix Correia, Alex Sandro, Manuel Locatelli 

Doubtful: None

Suspended: Juan Cuadrado, Arkadiusz Milik
