Juventus vs Monza – Betting Preview
Retaliation-driven Juventus will host promoted Monza at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday in an effort to snap a two-match Serie A losing streak.
Recently, Bianconeri supporters have had a lot to process both on and off the field, so Raffaele Palladino’s return to his former stomping ground cannot come soon enough!
Juventus’ dominating run of five consecutive home league victories without conceding was ended by Atalanta’s prolific performance at the Allianz Stadium.
Given that Allegri’s team had conceded as many goals against them in their first nine Serie A home games of the season, La Dea’s three-goal total may in fact be viewed as an exception.
Juventus has a reputation to uphold despite the off-field commotion, and after picking up five victories in their last six Serie A matches against newly promoted teams, they should be in good shape.
Ironically, Monza was the source of the team’s lone loss during that time period, underscoring the rage felt by I Bianconeri before of this match!
Monza is going for a remarkable accomplishment following the aforementioned victory in the opposite match, as they may become the first team since Inter in 1930 to defeat Juventus in their first two league encounters.
That could prove easier said than done, given that they had gone winless on four straight Serie A travels (D1, L3) before humbling dead-last Cremonese 3-2 last time out.
Monza might perhaps overtake their respected hosts with a win against the odds, but if they want to do so, they’re better suited flying out of the gates.
I Biancorossi have only earned one point this season from six away league games in which they have given up the first goal (D1, L5), thus demonstrating a lack of grit!
