In September 2018, the legendary Silvio Berlusconi bought Monza. At that moment, the club was competing in Serie C and now they have reached Serie A. They achieved promotion in an incredible way, as they beat Pisa in the playoffs after extra time last season.
During this summer, Berlusconi invested a lot of money and announced a fight for a place in the Champions League. Just some of the players signed are Andrea Carboni, Andrea Ranocchia, Gianluca Caprari, Pedro Pereira, Andrea Petagna, Leonardo Mancuso and Michele Di Gregorio. Also, Matteo Pessina, Stefano Sensi and Marlon came on loan. Head coach Giovanni Stroppa has a very good squad at his disposal, but it will obviously take time to get it all in order.
Monza suffered two defeats in first two rounds and they hope for a better result against Udinese at home. Serie A is a much higher quality competition than Serie B and not everything will go exactly as Berlusconi had planned in his mind before the start of 2022/2023 season.
It sounds incredible, but it’s been nine years since Udinese finished a season above 12th place in Serie A. They have been unable to break out of mediocrity for years and that will hardly change in this campaign. Simply, squad quality and investments are not big enough for Udinese to get involved in the fight for top 10.
Almost at the end of every season, several quality players leave this club. It was the same this summer. Udinese sold Nahuel Molina, Destiny Udogie, Brandon Soppy and Mamadou Coulibaly, while Jens Stryger Larsen went to Trabzonspor as a free agent. Udinese have invested a certain amount of income for new players, but it seems that it won’t be enough to do better than 12th in the table.
Udinese collected only one point in matches against Milan and Salernitana and the game from the last round when they were outplayed by Salernitana is especially worrying. Whether it was just a bad day or not, this clash in Monza will show.
Monza and Udinese never played against each other in the past so this will be their first clash. This is not big surprise since this is Monza’s first appearance in Serie A, while Udinese has been a member of that competition for 50 years.
Carlo Augusto, Andrea Ranocchia, Marco D’Alessandro, Dany Mota and Pablo Mari are injured and probably won’t play for Monza against Udinese. Nehuen Perez is the only unavailable player for the visitors due to suspension.
Monza vs. Udinese Prediction
Monza invested a lot of money and they expect a good result already in the first season in Serie A. The story didn’t start well for them and this match against Udinese is a great opportunity to improve the impression. Because of that, they should be able to draw at least, so +0 Asian Handicap is the best betting option for this match.
