Monza vs Cremonese Italian Serie A Predictions by LeagueLane

Monza vs Cremonese
Italian Serie A
Date: 18 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: U-Power Stadium (Monza).

Monza host Cremonese in the first game of Saturday’s Serie A schedule at U-Power Stadium. The hosts are looking to maintain the two-game unbeaten streak, while their counterparts will be searching for salvation points in their relegation battle.

Monza took four points from the previous two league rounds. They held relegation-threatened Verona to a 1-1 stalemate last Sunday. It was, however, the fourth consecutive game in which Raffaele Palladino’s men conceded at least a goal.

Monza sit comfortably at the 12th position in the Serie A table and they have all but secured the top-flight survival being 14 points above Verona in the red zone.

Sadly, the same can’t be said for the visitors as Cremonese will need a miracle to prevent the drop to Serie B football next season.

Davide Ballardini’s squad share the rock bottom of the league standings with Sampdoria. The two teams are currently 12 points below the safe zone line.

There is really not much to suggest a positive scenario for Cremonese both in the remaining part of the season and in this particular game on Saturday.

Cremonese are yet to record a win on the road in this term of Serie A. They own the worst defensive record in the competition with 48 goals shipped.

The visitors have allowed at least two goals in six of the previous seven league affairs. They fell 0-2at home to Fiorentina last weekend.

Monza vs Cremonese Head-to-head

  • Monza have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup, winning 6, drawing 3, and losing only 1 of the last 10 home clashes against Cremonese.
  • Monza celebrated a 2-3 victory over Cremonese in mid-January this year when the two teams locked horns in the reverse fixture.
  • Monza will go into this on the back of five wins, one draw, and one loss in the previous seven clashes against Cremonese.

Monza vs Cremonese Prediction

Cremonese’s leaky defense gives away plenty of chances and we believe Monza’s offensive unit should be capable of taking advantage of them on Saturday.

Everything points towards a home win and we will back it at the 1.75 odds. Knowing how easy to break down Cremonese have been of late, we are also tempted by the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 2.00 odds.
