Serie A: Monza claim shock 1-0 win over Juve after Di Maria sees red

Juve key player Angel Di Maria’s return from injury was cut short after being sent off five minutes before half-time after placing his elbow in Armando Izzo’s chest.

Juventus had half-chances in the first half but struggled to build momentum as Monza were effective in breaking down play in midfield.

Dusan Vlahovic had several attempts on goal, but none of them were difficult to catch for Monza goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio.

Newly-promoted Monza smelled blood in the second half, pressuring the opposition’s defense into mistakes as Allegri’s side tried to look for counter-attacking options.

Substitute Christian Gytkjaer was the hero when he slotted home the winner from Patrick Ciurria’s cross in the 74th minute.

Moise Kean came close to equalizing for Juventus in the 81st minute when his header went on target, but Di Gregorio was alert and kept it firmly in his grasp.

Allegri was not allowed to sit on the bench for Juve’s first Serie A loss of the season after he was sent off last Sunday in the 2-2 home draw with Salernitana after protesting a VAR goal disallowed.

Juve fielded a depleted squad as Arkadiusz Milik and Juan Cuadrado were suspended for the match, while Federico Chiesa, Kaio Jorge, Paul Pogba, Manuel Locatelli and Alex Sandro were all injured.

Monza next travel to Sampdoria on October 2 after the international break, while Juventus visit Bologna on the same day.

Juventus remain eighth in the standings but are now six points behind leaders Udinese after seven games, while Monza moved up to 18th with four points.
