In the match of the 21st round of the Italian championship, Monza will host Sampdoria from Genoa on its field.
"Monza"Raffaele Palladino's team made a big sensation in their last match of the Italian championship on the road.
Monza was able to beat Juventus 2-0 in Turin. "Brianzoli" had a very successful first half and having created a comfortable advantage in the score, they immediately switched to playing from defense. Monza could have opened the scoring already in the tenth minute, but Gianluca Caprari's goal was canceled due to offside. However, the team of Raffaele Palladino continued to put pressure on the opponent's goal, as a result, in the 18th minute, Monza scored a goal already according to all the rules. From the transfer of Jose Machin, Patrick Chiurria sent the ball into the opponent's goal. After that, Brianzoli played defensively, but at the end of the first half, Monza carried out a successful attack and scored the second goal. This time, Dani Mota sent the ball into the opponent's goal from Carlos Augusto's pass. In the second half, Monza already played exclusively from defense, which allowed the modest club to make a sensation. It should be noted that the goalkeeper of "Monza" Michele Di Gregorio made a total of eight saves, which greatly helped the team to succeed.
After this match, Monza scored 25 points and now Raffaele Palladino's team takes 11th place in the standings.
"Sampdoria"Dejan Stankovic's team, in turn, is in very bad shape and has already lost four matches in a row.
In their last match in Serie A, which was on January 28, Sampdoria lost to Atalanta from Bergamo on the road. In each of the halves, the Mariners received one ball in their goal. At the same time, Sampdoria showed far from the worst football, but Dejan Stankovic's team could not realize their moments and lost due to the difference in class with a score of 0:2.
After this match, nine points remained in the asset of Sampdoria, and thus Dejan Stankovic's team remained on the 19th line in the standings.
Sampdoria and Monza last played against each other on the second of October as part of the eighth round of the Italian Championship. Then "Monza" in Genoa won a crushing victory with a score of 3:0.
ForecastIn this match, Monza is considered by the bookmakers to be a fairly clear favorite, which is more or less fair.
However, given the state of Sampdoria and the acute need for points from the team from Genoa, we can expect a very hard fight. We suggest you bet on "both teams will score – yes."
