Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bologna, Monza will look to retain their spot in top ten when they face reigning champions Milan on Matchday 23. The Biancorossi have been producing excellent displays in 2023, and they must be high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s encounter. Dany Mota is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Meanwhile, the Rossoneri desperately needed a win against Torino, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-match losing run. The title holders aim to climb to the Champions League berth, but seeing that the in-form hosts are tough to beat at Brianteo, the share of spoils is on the horizon. As for the away team, all Sergino Dest, Ismael Bennacer, Mike Maignan, and Alessandro Florenzi are out of contention through injuries.
