Udinese vs Juventus
Italy – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 23 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena.
The Old Lady need five more points to confirm their ninth straight league title, and despite the campaign having four more games, the team will surely try to wrap it up as soon as they can.
The reason being, the major European leagues all have come to an end, or have found their champions – and with the CL around the corner, it’s important that the key players are well rested.
The relegation-threatened Friulians seem like a good opponent to score an easy win over, for Maurizio Sarri’s men.
Not only will it bring some confidence back into the squad (after some unimpressive performances in a row), but it will provide an opportunity for Cristiano Ronaldo to chase the European Golden Boot as well.
By the looks of things, expect Juventus to deliver a huge win this Thursday.

Udinese vs Juventus: Prediction
Luca Gotti’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Napoli. In the meantime, Sarri’s men registered a 2-1 victory at home against Lazio.
As things stand, the Old Lady are easily the favorites. They are the eight-time defending champions of the league, and can take it to an impressive nine in a row with just five more points.
Not only are they the best team in Italy, but with some huge names in their roster, they could be considered one of the best teams in Europe.
Going on, the Friulians were winless in 14 of their preceding 18 overall games, and they have not won at home since February of 2020. In addition, they are on a six-match losing run against this opponent, and have not won such a game at home since 2010.
Moreover, Sarri’s men have recorded 37 of the previous 44 overall h2h wins, and they won the latest such match with a 4-0 scorecard.
As such, expect a huge win for Juventus this game week.
