Serie A | Monza 3-0 Salernitana: Mota Carvalho masterclass

Monza made short work of Salernitana with Dany Mota Carvalho contributing a goal, an assist and earning a penalty, while Antonio Candreva saw red.

This was a relegation tussle, although the visitors were fairly comfortable mid-table, four points clear of the hosts. Pablo Mari and Stefano Sensi were long-term absentees, while Norbert Gyomber and Matteo Lovato didn’t make the trip.

Watch the highlights here.

Patrick Ciurria almost scored an extraordinary opener after 10 minutes, his acrobatic bicycle kick from a Dany Mota Carvalho cross brilliantly parried by Luigi Sepe.

Monza took the lead with a smart Mota Carvalho back-heel flick for Carlos Augusto, whose finish from six yards was deflected into the roof of the net to give Sepe no chance.

The second goal was a succession of Salernitana errors, as Daniliuc mis-read a long ball, Dany Mota skipped away from Lorenzo Pirola and then Sepe let the finish squirm under his body.

Andrea Colpani was unlucky not to make it 3-0 after the restart, his snooker shot from the edge of the box thumped the inside of the far post.

Antonio Candreva came off the bench and had a nightmare as a substitute, because his second bookable offence also gave away a penalty for the tackle from behind on Dany Mota Carvalho, so he was sent off and Matteo Pessina converted.
