Juventus 0-2 Monza: Bianconeri defeated twice in a season by emerging Monza

Last Updated on 30/01/2023 by

In addition to their historic first-ever victory over Juventus, Monza also defeated them in Turin thanks to goals from Patrick Ciurria and Dany Mota Carvalho.

The news of Paul Pogba and Dusan Vlahovic’s call-ups was good before the game. The latter, the team’s fifth substitute, was unable to get past the opposition’s defence while the former refused to enter the field.

Monza defeated Juventus in the first half. At the half, Brianza had a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Patrick Ciurria and Dany Mota, which the Bianconeri, despite their best efforts, were unable to cut.

Juventus took on a team they had defeated just 11 days earlier in the Coppa Italia with the goal of regaining their league-winning form.

Instead, it was the guests who appeared more at ease and discovered the internet in just 10 minutes thanks to Caprari. Juventus were appreciative of the introduction of the semi-automatic offside as the VAR indicated Caprari’s slight advantage over Bremer. Although the goal was disallowed, Monza’s advantage was only delayed.

Nicolo Fagioli burst from midfield on the 13th minute, leaving three Monza players in his wake, displaying some of Juve’s recent link-up play. His cross found Moise Kean, who missed with his shot.

After waiting for five minutes, Monza broke the tie. Patrick Ciurria caught a pass that José Macin threw behind the Bianconeri defence. After accepting, Ciurria drilled a low shot past Szczesny.

With five minutes left in the first half, Monza doubled their advantage as they continued to possess the ball more frequently. At the halfway point, Carlos Augusto regained control of the ball and ran unimpeded forward. Dany Motta received a pass from the wing back into the penalty area. Szczesny was avoided by the striker, who then fired the ball into an open goal.

During the break, Allegri changed three things. Before the hour mark, Juventus made a fourth substitution, adding Milik to the group that already included Samuel Iling, Matias Soule, and Manuel Locatelli.

The adjustments gave Juventus the necessary impetus, and they eventually increased pressure on the opposition’s defence. Locatelli launched a drive from the edge of the court, which Michele De Gregori punched away at full extension.

Four minutes later, Milik fired another long-range attempt at the Monza goalkeeper, who again made a one-handed save after Di Maria’s long-range attempt appeared to be headed in.

Eventually, Juve managed to get past the Monza goalkeeper, but Bremer’s goal-scoring attempt was clearly offside when he did so after Rabiot had compelled yet another save. Milik hurt himself while stretching for the ball; as a result, Juve finished the game with 10 players on the field.

Monza completed the game to earn victories both at home and away, becoming just the second team since Inter in 1930 to defeat Juve in their opening two Serie A games.
