Juventus vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: 7 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus continued their winning streak on Wednesday afternoon, clinching the seventh consecutive league victory in the first fixture after the World Cup break.
I Bianconeri saw off Cremonese 0-1 on the road thanks to a late stoppage-time winner from Arkadiusz Milik . The former Napoli target man thus took his league tally to five goals for the season.
The Polish forward is expected to lead the line for Juve once again on Saturday against Udinese since the team’s top scorer Dusan Vlahovic is still unavailable through injury.
Juventus are still third in the Serie A table but they have managed to close the gap on leaders Napoli to seven points following I Partinopei’s defeat at Inter Milan three days ago.
Massimiliano Allegri’s troops will now face a much tougher job than the one they had on Wednesday since they play host to Udinese on Saturday afternoon in Matchday No 17.
Udinese are 8th in the Serie A table going into this tie. They pulled off another strong performance on the league’s return to action but it was not enough for the win in the home match against Empoli on Wednesday.
The team led by Andrea Sottill registered 21 attempts on the occasion, but managed to find the back of the net just once for a disappointing 1-1 stalemate.
It was the fourth draw in the last five league outings for Udinese and their eighth consecutive Serie A match without a victory.

Juventus vs Udinese Prediction
Juventus won seven straight league games, while Udinese are winless in eight successive outings in the competition. However, things are by no means as simple from the betting point of view as we would by no means be surprised to see the visitors causing Juve problems on Saturday at Allianz Stadium.
The main pick is Udinese to win or Draw double chance at the 2.00 odds, while we will alternatively go with the 1-1 correct score pick at the 7.00 odds.
