It has been an extremely concerning period for Juventus, as the club has been docked points following an investigation into their past transfer dealings. Monza will be hoping to take advantage of that disarray by maintaining their five-game unbeaten run in Serie A.
Serie A Preview
Juventus face an uphill battle if they are to finish in a Champions League place this season, as they have dropped to tenth after being docked 15 points for their past transfer dealings. That decision means that the Old Lady now sit 14 points off the Champions League spots, and their league form has also hit a flat spot in recent weeks.
Juventus come into this fixture having failed to win in their previous two matches. They were at least able to bounce back from a 5-1 loss against Napoli last weekend, as they played out an absorbing 3-3 draw with Napoli. But, it is slightly concerning that they have now allowed eight goals in their previous two fixtures in Serie A.
Monza will be the visitors to Turin this weekend, and they look primed to inflict more misery on the prestigious hosts. The Italian club currently sits 13th in the overall standings, but a victory on Sunday could lift them above Juventus into the top half of the standings. Few would bet against it based on the fact that Monza have gone five games without defeat in Serie A.
Over that run, they have picked up two wins, with their draw last weekend being their third tie in that period of five fixtures. Monza would have likely been disappointed to have only picked up a point as they dominated for long periods against Sassuolo. However, Gianluca Caprari’s goal was enough to save a point with half an hour remaining.
Juventus vs Monza Head to Head
This is only the third competitive meeting between these two sides in the past ten years. Juventus claimed victory in the Coppa Italia meeting between the sides last week, landing a 2-1 win. However, Monza won the first meeting between the sides in Serie A back in September.
Juventus vs Monza Prediction
This will be another tricky fixture for the Old Lady on Sunday. Monza’s unbeaten record deserves respect coming into the fixture, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them take something from the game. The preference is for a score draw.
