Juventus face their second and likely final game under caretaker boss Paolo Montero as their Serie A campaign finishes up on Saturday.

Juve could still climb back up to third this weekend, overtaking Thiago Motta’s Bologna ahead of his rumoured arrival as their replacement for Max Allegri.

However, the Old Lady could still finish a disappointing league campaign by slipping out of the top four.

Juventus vs Monza Betting Tips

  • Both teams to score @ 5/6
  • Draw @ 4/1

Team News

Juventus are without Mattia De Sciglio through injury, while the hosts have Andrea Cambiaso suspended for their final game of the campaign.

Monza have lost Papu Gomez to suspension for this trip, while they have plenty of injury absentees with Patrick Ciurria and Daniel Maldini among those missing.

Juventus vs Monza Odds

Juve are heavy 4/11 favourites - or a 73.3% chance - to win on home turf, with the draw priced at 4/1, while a win for visiting Monza is as long as 7/1.

Monza are certainly capable of holding their opponents at bay, so a 1-1 draw may appeal at 9/1.

Both teams to score @ 5/6

Juventus showed plenty of fight last weekend as they raced back from 3-0 down at Bologna to draw 3-3. However, defensive issues put them in that hole in the first place, while that draw kept them behind the Rossoblu in the standings.

Juve are now winless in their last six league games, having drawn 1-1 with bottom-club Salernitana in their last home match. While the Old Lady have a solid defensive record behind them this term, Montero’s first game in charge suggests they could struggle at the back once more.

They have seen both teams score in four of their last five league starts, as have visitors Monza. The away side have had a solid Serie A campaign, keeping themselves clear of the drop and they’ll hold little fear heading into their final game of the season.

Monza have conceded in 72% of their away games this term, but they can find the net against a Juve side who are struggling for clean sheets.

BTTS - yes at 5-6

Draw @ 4/1

Juventus head into this weekend having finished level in each of their last six Serie A games.

They head into this game as heavy favourites given that Monza are winless in their last eight, but it’s understandable that the visitors tailed off with safety all but assured by the spring.

Monza still have some fight to them, having drawn two of their last four games. The visitors head to a Juve side who have seen seven of their 18 home games this term finish level and with the hosts in woeful form there’s an opportunity for the visitors to return with a point.

The draw appeals in this clash at 4/1, with Juve going so long without a victory. New boss Montero has hardly had time to get his ideas across and with their managerial search seemingly coming to a quick conclusion, it’s hard to see Juve looking to fly out of the traps in their final game.

Draw at 4-1
