Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Monza and Torino square off against each other at Brianteo in the closing match of Saturday’s program. The Biancorossi proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Verona at the weekend, with the team regaining their spot in top ten, but they face a tough challenge against the fellow mid-table side. Papu Gomez remains on the sidelines through suspension, while both Gianluca Caprari and Marco D’Alessandro are sidelined with injuries. Armando Izzo is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Il Toro, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Lecce and Sassuolo, but we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out as Monza have yet to suffer a loss at home this season. The likes of Perr Schuurs, Brandon Soppy, and Koffi Djidji continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Duvan Zapata):
Duvan Zapata was born in Cali, Colombia on 1 April, 1991. The 186-cm-tall attacker started his youth career at America de Cali, playing for the club between 2004 and 2008. In 2008 he made his debut for the first team and three years later he scored his first hat-trick for the Colombian outfit, in a 3-2 win over Deportivo Pereira.
In 2011 he signed a loan deal with Estudiantes and he found the net for the Argentine team on his debut against Belgrano. After scoring 11 goals in 37 appearances for Estudiantes, the Colombian striker joined Napoli in 2013, but he failed to establish himself as a first-choice attacker.
On 22 July, 2015 Zapata joined fellow Serie A team Udinese on loan and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 24 league appearances for the Zebrette. Duvan Zapata has 5 caps for Colombia U20 team, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior side.
