Juventus vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Torino).
Juventus are going to host Udinese in the opening match of the Italian Serie A 27th round which is going to take place on Friday evening.
The defending Italian champions are simply too dominant in Serie A as they are 16 points ahead of Napoli, their closest rivals. They managed to increase their advantage on the table thanks to a 2-1 victory at Stadio San Paolo.
Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads booked four wins in a row and they are still undefeated team. Juventus allowed only three points to their rivals this season, and they missed the chance to win just once at away grounds.
Juve are the most productive team in front of the goal in the league scoring 55 times so far this season.
On the other hand, Udinese are positioned in the bottom half of the table as they are sitting on the 15th spot.
However, thanks to two wins in a row, they managed to get away from the danger zone and the visitors are now seven points ahead of Bologna.
Davide Nicola’s side have severe troubles with their finishing as they are one of the most inefficient teams in the league with 21 goals scored so far. In the last five outings, Udinese avoided defeat just twice.
Juventus vs Udinese: Head-to-head
Juventus managed to beat their rivals five times in the last six clashes, while the visitors booked their latest victory back in 2015 in Torino.
Last two clashes ended with the same scoreline – 2:0 – while three times in a row prior to those ones, both sides managed to find the back of the net.
Interestingly, the crowd in Torino haven’t seen a draw for the last 20 years.
Juventus vs Udinese: Prediction
The hosts are strong favourites in this one and it is highly expected that they can keep up with their streak. However, the clash against Atletico Madrid will also be on their minds and Udinese might put the resistance in the first half.
Udinese haven’t been productive enough so far in the season, while Juventus’ defence is the tightest one on the competition. We believe that home side is more than capable of keeping the clean sheet for the third time in a row against their opponents.
