It’s easily the biggest game of the season for Cremonese and Monza this weekend with the home side still looking for their first win of the season in Serie A as Monza remain out of the relegation zone for the time being at least.
Although the top of the table clash between Napoli and Juventus will steal the headlines in Serie A this weekend, it doesn’t get much bigger for these two clubs in this game down at the bottom.
After losing 2-0 to Hellas Verona, Cremonese are now at the bottom of the table after previously sitting 18th. It also means 17 games have gone by without the club getting a win on the board - it’s the worst run in Serie A history.
All of Cremonese’s seven points so far have come from their seven draws, while they have not scored the least goals or let in the most either. Simply put, they just cannot win a game.
Monza have rocketed out of the bottom three over the past few months, and they’ve started 2023 by drawing with Fiorentina and Inter Milan. Against Inter, they came from behind on two occasions and equalised in the dying embers of the match.
