Serie A: Monza Heap Pressure On Allegri As 10-Man Juve Suffers Consecutive Defeats

Serie A: Monza Heap Pressure On Allegri As 10-Man Juve Suffe

Monza heaped further pressure on Max Allegri as they claimed a deserving 1-0 home win over Juventus on Sunday, their first Serie A victory of the season, as the visitors struggled after being reduced to 10 men.

Juventus key player Angel Di Maria's return from injury was cut short after being sent off five minutes before the break after placing his elbow in Armando Izzo's chest.

Juventus had half-chances in the first half but were struggling to create momentum, as Monza were effective in breaking down the play in midfield.

Newly-promoted Monza smelled blood in the second half and pressured the opposition defence to make mistakes, while Massimiliano Allegri's side tried to look for possibilities of a counter-attack.

Substitute Christian Gytkjaer became the hero when he slid in the winner from Patrick Ciurria's cross in the 74th minute.

Allegri was not allowed on the bench for the game after being sent off last Sunday in the 2-2 home draw against Salernitana after protesting a disallowed VAR goal.

Monza next travel to Sampdoria on 2 October after the international break while Juventus host Bologna on the same day.
