Di Gregorio plays the superhero in the first half of Roma-Monza: with two sensational interventions on Aouar and Belotti he kept his team in the game and confirmed his excellent start to the season.
Michele Di Gregorio at the Olimpico he proved to be one of the fittest goalkeepers in the championship and kept the team afloat Monza in the lunch match against Roma. The goalkeeper from Brianza boasts 83% of saves at the start of the season and in the match against the Giallorossi he is confirming his form with two sensational interventions made in the first half.
The Monza goalkeeper first made a super save on the close range header Aouar, lifting the ball over the crossbar; and just before half-time he prevented the ball from being hit by Belotti header to end up in the net, responding with a sensational reflex to the conclusion from a few steps away.
Both interventions were decisive and kept Monza in the game. On Aouar the goalkeeper showed positional sense and great reactivity but on Belotti he showed off his very quick reflexes and with his foot he managed to save the ball on the goal line.
In recent weeks Di Gregorio has been linked to Roma for next year but Monza are unlikely to let him go: last July the goalkeeper renewed his contract until 2027 but it is not certain that things will change at the end of the year.
At the moment Michele Di Gregorio is one of the strongest Italian goalkeepers and it is not a blasphemy to think that he could become a permanent part of the group of goalkeepers of the national team. Before the match at the Olimpico, the Monza goalkeeper was second in Serie A for saves made (30) behind only Frosinone’s Stefano Turati (32).
Monza wants to try to confirm the excellent championship played last season and the start is undoubtedly positive: Raffaele Palladino certainly cannot do without one of the most important players in the squad, namely his goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio.
