Christian Getkear (2ndR back) celebrates after scoring his first Serie A goal
Monza (Italy) (AFP) – Monza plunged Juventus into a new crisis on Sunday after beating the under-pressure giants Turin 1-0 to win their first-ever Serie A game, while Atalanta temporarily topped the league with a 1-0 win. 0 on Rome.
Christian Geteker scored a historic goal 15 minutes from the end at the U Power Stadium to knock Monza, owned by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, from the bottom of the table and end Juventus’ unbeaten start to the season.
Monza picked up his first three points of the season in his debut under Rafael Palladino, who replaced Giovanni Strupba on Tuesday.
They are still in the relegation zone but they are still in the relegation zone, but one point behind 17th-placed Verona, who lost 2-0 to Fiorentina.
“Today was amazing and unexpected,” Palladino said.
“They have shown themselves to be real men… They have given everything, I should not get any recognition because it is all up to them.”
Troubled Juventus, who lost Angel Di Maria with a consecutive red card five minutes before the break, are eighth, 10 points behind Atalanta, after winning only two of their first seven matches.
Before the match, Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene said it would be “crazy” to sack Allegri, under a contract until 2025 with a salary of eight million euros a year.
But a poor start in Italy and two losses in the first two Champions League games put Allegri in the crosshairs of fans, criticized not only for poor results but also for the uninspiring football his team plays.
Allegri was not helped by the injury crisis that left him five potential players on Sunday, and Juve’s chances on Sunday were further damaged when Di Maria – who later said the defeat was his fault – was sent off for hitting Armando Izo with his elbow.
Juventus fans express their feelings after the defeat to Monza
Juventus had not made it shortly before the Argentine winger was sent off, and Monza went sooner to open the scoring after the break with first Dani Motta and then Getkair firing good chances from close range.
Patrick Scioria had given Motta his chance and the Italian cut a pass to Getkeer who smashed the ball into the net, his first Serie A goal, thrilling home fans and leaving Juventus wondering where to go next.
– Atalanta regains lead –
Atalanta rose to the top of the league after Giorgio Scalvini scored a superb low-kick goal 10 minutes before halftime at Stadio Olimpico and took the three points.
Giorgio Scalvini scored his first goal of the season to beat Roma
The 18-year-old finished off the post after picking up a pass from fellow teenage Rasmus Hoglund, giving Atalanta their fifth win of the season with just one shot on goal.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are one point ahead of Udinese, who beat Inter Milan 3-1 in Sunday’s early game to win their fifth game on the jump.
However, they could be joined with 17 points by either AC Milan or Napoli, who meet at the San Siro in the main weekend match.
They capitalized on their luck to win, with Tammy Abraham missing two golden chances to equalize at the end of the first half.
England international Abraham left fans wondering how he didn’t score on the ground five minutes before the break, when he missed and shot around Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello and simply ran the ball out of the field.
Abraham then played a double match with Nemanja Matic before seeing his shot from close range pushed by Sportello.
Roma were furious 10 minutes into the break when referee Daniele Chevy did not award a penalty for the home side to Caleb Okoli as he pulled Niccol Zaniolo’s shorts so that his underwear was visible.
Jose Mourinho had to be hindered by his coaching staff and sent off by Chevy, meaning he would miss Roma’s trip to his former club Inter after the international break.
Eldor Shumorodov headed away after a thrilling display from Zaniolo three minutes before the end of the match, and when the Uzbekistan captain pulled a low shot wide of the goal, Atalanta secured the points.
