Monza claim shock 1-0 win over Juventus after Angel Di Maria sees red | Football News

Monza secured a surprising but deserved victory at home to Juventus on Sunday, their first A-series victory of the season, as the visitors struggled after being reduced to 10 men.
Juve’s key player Angel Di Maria’s return from injury was cut short after he was sent off five minutes before the break after placing his elbow in Armando IzzoChest.
Juventus had half chances in the first half but struggled to build momentum as Monza were effective in breaking up play in midfield.
Newly promoted Monza smelled blood in the second half and pressured the opposing defense into making mistakes, while Massimiliano Allegri’s side tried to look for counter-attacking opportunities.
Substitute Christian Gytkjaer became the hero when he slipped the winner of Patrick Cirurriacross 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 with Salernitana after protesting a disallowed VAR goal.
Monza then travel to Sampdoria on October 2 after the international break while Juventus host Bologna on the same day.
