Italy Serie AMonza 1-0 Juventus

Monza 1-0 Juventus

What a result for Monza, and what a way to secure your first-ever victory in Serie A.

It wasn’t precisely a snatch-and-grab either, as the hosts thoroughly outplayed a disjointed Juventus side.

However, substitute Gytkjaer scored the winning goal.

There’s still a long way to go in their maiden Serie A campaign, but with performances like that against such opposition, Monza can have renewed hope of staying in this league!

Starting lineup:

MONZA (3-5-2): Michele Di Gregorio;

Marlon Santos, Pablo Mari, Armando Izzo;

Patrick Ciurria, Matteo Pessina, Nicolo Rovella, Stefano Sensi, Carlos Augusto;

Dany Mota, Gianluca Caprari.

 

MONZA SUBS: Alessio Cragno, Alessandro Sorrentino, Luca Caldriola, Jose Machin, Andrea Barberis, Christian Gytkjaer, Mattia Valoti, Samuele Birindelli, Filippo Ranocchia, Valentin Antov, Andrea Colpani, Luca Marrone, Warren Bondo, Andrea Carboni, Salvatore Molina.

 

JUVENTUS (4-3-3): Mattia Perin;

Danilo, Frederico Gatti, Bremer, Mattia De Sciglio;

Weston McKennie, Leandro Paredes, Fabio Miretti;

Angel Di Maria, Dusan Vlahovic, Filip Kostic.

 

JUVENTUS SUBS: Wojciech Szczesny, Carlo Pinsoglio, Moise Kean, Leonardo Bonucci, Daniele Rugani, Matias Soule, Tommaso Barbieri, Samuel Iling-Junior, Nicolo Fagioli, Enzo Barrenecha.

Goal:

GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!! Magnificent from Monza!!!! It’s been coming, and now Serie A’s bottom side have taken the lead against the mighty Juventus!!! Rovella finds Ciurria wide to his right and cuts back inside before looping a left-footed cross to the front post. Gytkjaer ghosts in behind the defence and stabs a first-time finish beyond Perin and into the bottom corner!! 1-0 to Monza, and now the question is can they hang onto their lead?

So, what’s next?

That victory – their first ever in the Italian top-flight – lifts Monza off the bottom of the table and up to 18th, just a point from safety.

They played so well to beat Juve, and you’d hope they will back themselves against anyone.

For Juve, a first defeat of the season merely extends their stuttering start to 2022-23.

They remain eighth, but it’s now just one win in six and none in their last three.

This, coupled with two losses from their first two Champions League group games, suggests that Max Allegri’s position will soon be under severe pressure.
