2023/24 is only the second-ever Serie A campaign for AC Monza, who earned promotion to the top flight for the first time last year. The Biancorossi did well in the 2022/23 season, narrowly missing out on a top-half finish. And Raffaele Palladino’s men have stepped up this term, rising to nine on the table amid a four-game unbeaten run.
On the other hand, Juventus could not have hoped for a better 2023/24 campaign thus far. While they have not risen to the Serie A summit, Massimiliano Allegri’s charges are only two points and a spot behind the table-topping Inter Milan. And the visitors are currently on an eight-game unbeaten run, the best in Serie A.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a 1-0 win for Monza over ten-man Juventus, with Christian Gytkjaer scoring the match-winner. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides.
