Juventus' surprising loss against Monza

Monza defeated 10-man Juventus 1-0 on Sunday to win their first-ever game in Serie A and increase the pressure on Massimiliano Allegri, who is already under fire. The Bianconeri might have thought it would be smoother against Monza, which was winless and had let up 14 goals in its previous six games. 

However, Juventus scarcely had a shot on goal, and its prospects of securing a satisfying victory were weakened when Di Maria was unjustly dismissed for elbowing Monza defender Armando Izzo in the chest in the 40th minute. Christian Lund Gytkjaer volleyed in at the near post after Patrick Ciurria sent in a cross from the right, sending the home crowd into a frenzy. Monza, a newly promoted team, surely didn't anticipate defeating Juventus for its first-ever Serie A victory, but it achieved it by a score of 1-0. After Angel Di Maria was sent off, Juventus played most of the game with 10 men.
