Monza form and stats

There's been little loot from Monza's travels as they have only collected 5 points from 7 away games in the Serie B. Monza only have 0 wins to counter their 2 defeats and 5 draws. It's three draws from Monza's last three away games, a decent catch but one that could be so much better.

Impressive finishing from José Machín and Dany Mota (2) secured the home win 3-2 against Como in their previous game. World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager G. Stroppa when José Machín scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 71st minute. Attacker Dany Mota got a player rating of 8.51 in the game. "Man of the match" Mota scored two goals, hit two key passes and dribled past the opponent 3 of 4 times.

Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Crotone that ended 1-1.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Monza playing away and similar expectations, we found six relevant matches. Results were one Monza win, four draws and one defeat.

A quick return to home after this game, as Monza are hosting Cosenza in the Serie B only three days away.

The visitors have scored 4 goals from 7 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. As opposed to that, Monza have seen the ball go into their own net 8 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last two matches): Ascoli one win, zero draws and Monza one victory. As for goals, zero matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), two games had two or less.
