Monza got their first victory winning the Serie A Week 2 game on Saturday 26 August 2023 at the U-Power Stadium in Monza, Italy. Andrea Colpani’s first brace with Monza beat Empoli 2-0 on their home debut in Serie A and got their first three points of the season. Victory almost easily for Monza who dominate, risk little and bring home the first three points of their season. The undisputed MVP of the match opened and closed the scoring: Andrea Colpani, who condemned Empoli to their second defeat in two games.

Tough defeat for Empoli who have not won away in Serie A since 23 January, precisely against a team from Lombardy (1-0 against Inter thanks to Tommaso Baldanzi’s goal).

In the next round, the third, Empoli will have to face Juventus at home, while Monza will be guests of Atalanta in Bergamo.

Monza opened the score in the 45th minute. Andrea Colpani defeated Empoli goalkeeper with a left-footed shot to the top right corner. The assist is by Samuele Birindelli.

A superb match for Colpani scoring a brace in the 52nd minute!!!

✅   Stats before the game: Monza and Empoli met in Serie A only in the last championship: balance in balance with a home victory for each side (1-0 at Empoli in the first leg, 2-1 in Monza in the return leg). Monza have won both of their home games played against Tuscan teams in Serie A: 2-1 against Empoli on 4 March 2023, 3-2 against Fiorentina on 23 April.
