Juventus will play at home against Monza in the Italian Cup 1/8 finals.
The Bianconeri have managed to even up their results, with Allegri’s side sitting in second place seven points behind Napoli before last week’s fixture. However, in their last game in the Italian championship, the Old Lady were thrashed by the same Napoli (1-5) and slipped down to third place.
Prior to that game, Juventus had been unbeaten in eight games in a row in all competitions, with seven wins and one draw. This form itself makes the Turin players the favorite for the upcoming game, especially taking into account the factor of the home field.
The team is in 12th place in the Serie A, with 21 points after 18 rounds. The main task for Monza is to keep its place in the elite. Monza plays some pretty interesting soccer. The team invents and creates its own chances, as well as gives space to opponents.
For example, the team played a draw with Inter on January 7 (2-2). In their last match in Serie A, the visitors beat Cremonese away (3-2). They are currently without a losing streak of three games, one win and two draws, so it is unlikely they will be the whipping boy for the upcoming game.
It is logical to consider Juventus as the favorite. In six of the guests’ last 10 games, both opponents have scored. Therefore, our prediction and bet is both teams to score for 2.01.
