Monza vs Juventus Odds
Monza proved to be a tough opponent for Juventus last season, achieving a remarkable double over Allegri’s side in their first season in Serie A, becoming the second team to win their first two Premier League meetings against them. A 1-0 win here last September helped Monza get their league campaign off to a flying start before they traveled to the Allianz Stadium to win 2-0 in a heroic defensive performance, despite being outplayed (22-3 shots).
After a successful first season in Serie A, there are no signs of second-season syndrome at Monza as they are in the race for European football. Taking advantage of a slower start by many of the usual favorites, Monza sits ninth, just three points behind fifth-placed Roma. They are among the worst scorers in the league, but still in the top half of the table. Monza has drawn 1:1 three times in the last five games.
After injuries in September, Gianluca Caprari and Armando Izzo are still sidelined for Monza.
Youngster Samuele Vignato has missed the last two games through injury, but fellow midfielder Andrea Colpani is a player to watch out for as he knocks on the door of Italy’s senior national team. Colpani is one of some Italians who stand out in the Monza team, where they regularly feature nine or ten local players in their starting line-up, along with Portuguese striker Dany Motto, who has spent his entire career in Italy.
After all the chaos that reigned during the 2022-23 season for Juventus, a great response has arrived this season, with a brilliant start that currently makes them the closest challengers to Inter at the top of the table. Last week’s derby between these two clubs was a tense and fiercely fought match, with neither side being too disappointed with the 1:1 result. Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri may have been a little frustrated that his side failed to record a seventh straight clean sheet, conceding a goal shortly after taking the lead through Dusan Vlahovic, but the draw keeps them just two points behind the Nerazzurri.
Only one defeat in the first 13 games of the season suggests that Juventus will be a tough opponent. The Bianconeri are also lucky to play first in the next three rounds, playing each time on a Friday night, meaning they could come out on top before Inter play, with their nearest rivals having a tough test against Napoli this weekend.
Injury problems at right-back for Juventus with Danilo and Mattia De Sciglio mean Andrea Cambiaso is likely to continue playing in that position, but Weston McKennie has been used in that position occasionally this season. Timothy Weah, McKennie’s USA teammate, has also been a regular on the right flank but is currently sidelined with a thigh injury.
Hans Nicolussi Caviglia started his first league game for Juventus since 2019, as injury woes and three subsequent loan spells made him unavailable. Given the suspensions of Paul Pogba and Nicola Fagiolia in midfield, Nicolussi Caviglia’s return is perfectly timed, and he could see a significant increase in minutes over the next few months.

Juventus is a slight favorite in this matchup due to their better form and position in the table. However, in the previous matches, they had problems with Monza, and they also played away from home, so we cannot bet on a “clean two” with certainty. Likewise, we believe that the match will be much more closed, with few goals, and our suggestion for betting is a draw or a Juventus win, with a maximum of three goals scored in the entire match.
