Juventus get their Coppa Italia 2022-23 campaign underway with a home game against Monza at Juventus Stadium on Thursday. Juventus are one of the eight top-seeded teams from Serie A last season to have earned a direct place in the Coppa Italia round of 16.
Monza overcame Frosinone in the first round and Udinese in the second round, recording 3-2 wins in both games. Juventus are the runners-up from the previous campaign and have qualified for the final in the last three editions of the competition. They will be looking to kick off their campaign with a win.
Monza have done well for themselves in the competition thus far and have qualified for the round of 16 for the first time in the 21st century.
The Bianconeri are the most successful team in the Coppa Italia, winning it 14 times. They have a good record in Coppa Italia in recent years as well, qualifying for the final seven times in the last eight editions and winning it five times.
They suffered a 5-1 hammering in their away game against Napoli last week and will be looking to bounce back with a win in this match.
The Biancorossi have just one win to their name on their last four away games and might struggle here. Interestingly were able to avoid defeat in their one away game against Juventus.
Nonetheless, Juventus have been undefeated at home against Italian opponents this term and are expected to eke out a narrow win.
Prediction: Juventus 2-1 Monza
This match will start from 1:30 am
This match will take place on 20 January 2023
After the return to full training of both Dusan Vlahovic and Juan Cuadrado, there seems to be light at the end of a long tunnel for Juventus, as both could complete their removal from the Bianconeri’s overpopulated injury list.
The latter has been particularly missed since the start of 2023, as a number of non-specialists have filled in on the right flank, but he may even be able to start on Thursday. Paul Pogba is nearing a comeback too, but will not feature just yet, while Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio and Kaio Jorge remain absent.
With Max Allegri expected to rotate his squad, younger players such as Fabio Miretti, Nicolo Fagioli, Matias Soule and English prospect Samuel Iling-Junior are all set to be involved at the Allianz Stadium.
Perin; Danilo, Rugani, Gatti; Soule, McKennie, Paredes, Fagioli, Kostic; Miretti; Kean
