Serie A action on Sunday as ASS and Juve meet at Stadio Brianteo – 3:00pm GMT.

It’s a clash of twentieth vs eighth, as ASS host Juve at Stadio Brianteo.

AC Monza to host Juventus Amid Relegation Battle

ASS’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Raffaele Palladino, with a 1-1 draw to Lecce in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to Atalanta. ASS will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.

Also, getting out of a relegation battle requires a string of positive results, but Raffaele Palladino’s men know that five losses in six games is a run of form that will be hard to turn around. Their position is twentieth in the League and they have one point, that is, 0W, 5L and 1D having drawn one game and lost five games.

ASS have lost three fixtures of their three League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see AC Monza on 4 points.

ASS may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

With the Serie A season well into its stride, Juventus have managed to gain 10 points

Juve have dropped four points in their last two encounters – 2-2 at Salernitana and 1-1 at Fiorentina.

Also, Juve seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with four draws in five fixtures. Now they have 2 matches won, 0 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eighth place, with a total of 10 points having won two meetings and drawn four matches.

Playing away from home, Juve have drawn two games.

Juventus will have 13 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good atacking and defensive team

Juve have managed to maintain a strong defence so far, having so far only conceded four goals in their previous fixtures. Juve will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (9). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Dusan Vlahovic (4), Arkadiusz Milik (2), and Bremer (1).

Juve are missing eight players through injury or illness. This will affect Massimiliano Allegri’s selection choices significantly.
