Monza and Juventus kick off the Serie A weekend when they meet at the U-Power Stadium on Friday night. Juventus are currently Inter Milan’s closest challengers at the top of the league with just 2 points separating them.
If it wasn’t for the 1-1 draw against their derby rivals last week, Juventus would have had a record seventh straight clean sheet. Juventus have lost just one game from their opening 13 games of the season so far making them a tough team to beat.
Monza proved to be a difficult opponent as well for Juventus last season and are among 3 teams to have conceded the fewest goals in the league. They completed a remarkable double over Allegri’s side on their debut in Serie A. They are now just the second side to win their first two top-flight league games against them.
