Juventus vs Monza Prediction & Match Preview
Juventus vs Monza Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in Coppa Italia on Thursday, 19 January 2023.
The Old Lady were given a beating of a lifetime by Napoli the last match-day in the Serie A with a 5-1 scoreline. And what makes it unbelievable is the fact that Juventus were on a run of eight straight wins in the league, that too with clean sheets. For sure, Juve will be determined to get back into their groove with a huge win this Thursday.
And this is not at all good news for the newly-promoted Monza. They are already struggling to adjust to new life in the top flight, and have been a mess with their defense. They also have a poor record on the road this season, and are stuck in the bottom half of the league table.
The Old Lady will definitely be looking for revenge, after the league fixture between the two early in the season ended in a 1-0 win for Monza. This was the only official meeting between the two squads in the past decade.
It needs to be mentioned that Juve were a team that had not found their footing then – but now the story is different.
Apart from the Napoli loss, they are considered to be one of the absolute best teams in the Italian top flight now.
The Old Lady were on a run of eight straight wins in the Serie A before they ran into Napoli. The team surely will be determined to make amends for that loss, and in the process they would also want to settle scores for their defeat against Monza earlier in the campaign.
Moreover, at this venue, Juve lost just four times in the past 12 months – and three of these defeats came in the Champions League, while the fourth came against Inter.
It appears that Juventus are favorites to record the win this Thursday.
Going back to April of 2022, Monza have a single clean sheet on the road.
Surely expect goals to come in plenty this game week, as the wounded hosts take on minnows Monza.
As mentioned earlier, Juve are determined to make amends after the Napoli game. They will be extra vigilant – and they always have been a great team in terms of defense. Even with that 5-1 loss against Napoli, they have conceded the least number of goals of all the teams in the Italian top flight.
Likely, chances are quite low for Monza to find the back of the net this Thursday.
Monza won just thrice on the road this season in all competitions, whereas the last the Old Lady lost a Serie A fixture at home was back in April. They have been great at this venue all through 2022, apart from their Champions League match-ups.
Going on, Juve are former champions of Italy, while Monza are a team that were promoted just at the end of the last season. It appears that a -1.5 Asian Handicap on the wounded Juventus at an odd of 2.50 would be a great pick for the day.
