Monza chance!

Monza nearly equalise against Frosinone, Caprari drills just wide of the near post!

Udinese 0-1 Empoli: M'Baye Niang penalty!


Niang drilled it low into the near bottom corner, after kissing the ball. Maybe the kiss worked, because Okoye got his fingertips to that!

Inter vs. Lazio line-ups

Inter: Sommer; Pavard, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Lautaro Martinez, Thuram

Lazio: Provedel; Patric, Casale, Gila; Marusic, Vecino, Rovella, Pellegrini; Kamada, Zaccagni; Castellanos


This is big! This is Huge! Samardzic clumsy, so clumsy, very late trying to clear a loose ball and Cambiaghi gets there first, so he just boots Cambiaghi!

Frosinone attack

Triple chance! Two efforts charged down, then Zortea fires onto the side-netting.


Zarraga and Joao Ferreira on, Walace and Kamara off for Udinese.


Wasteful Monza, Caprari free kick straight into the wall.

Cuni and Reinier then replace Barrenechea and Cheddira for Frosinone.


Pessina for Monza, but scuffs the volley wide.

Monza chance

Valentin Carboni on the counter-attack, but the defenders force him wide and he fires over from a tricky angle. Caprari wanted the pass.


Cambiaghi and Marin on, Cancellieri and Grassi off for Empoli

Monza change

Pedro Pereira replaces Birindelli

Udinese threaten

Davis sprints down the left, Walukiewicz with a decisive sliding tackle at the by-line.


Colpani corner for Monza, Djuric header plucked out of the air.


Udinese and Empoli just keep making such basic errors. They are both shaken and anxious, you can tell.

Frosinone sub

Harroui off, Gelli on. Harroui has been their best player today.

VAR is back!

Monza-Frosinone has VAR back. Phew.

Frosinone chance

Zortea shot from the edge of the area bounces basically off the goalkeeper’s chest, then he smothers before Cheddira can pounce on the rebound.

Monza sub

Dany Mota Carvalho off, Caprari on.

Frosinone off the upright!

Matias Soule comes forward, shot comes off the base of the far post! Then the move continues and Sorrentino has to make a save on Harroui too before Valeri blasts over!

Of course, playing without VAR is what some Premier League clubs want…

Play resumes in Monza-Frosinone

VAR is not working, so referee Michael Fabbri makes play resume, but warns everyone there’s no VAR right now.

There is also an announcement in the stadium.

Still not playing in Monza

They are waiting to figure out what to do next.

If communication cannot be restored with the VAR – which btw is not in the stadium, it’s one big hub in Lissone – then play would have to resume without VAR and both teams accepting that.


OH what a chance that was! Lucca cross from the right, Keinan Davis header back across the face of goal and WIDE from six yards!

Confusion in Monza

The referee and the fourth official seem to have lost contact with the VAR booth… They’re talking on the phone instead.
