Udinese vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Friuli, Udine.
Udinese are in a state of bother after two consecutive losses against Lazio and Bologna. The team stands 14th in the Serie-A table, with just 2 wins in 7 games.
The Zebrette had ample possession against Bologna in the last game, but failed to take advantage. They scored early but Bologna leveled the scores before the half came to a close. Bologna went on to score a second and turned the game on its head. The match ended 2-1.
The team managed by Julio Velázquez were ill disciplined conceding 12 fouls and ended up with 4 yellow cards in that game.
So far, Rodrigo de Paul has scored 4 goals and chipped in 2 assists for the Little Zebras. So the job of finding the net will be in his shoulders. Things do not look easy for them as they host Juventus at home.
Juventus has had an enviable run in the league extending their winning streak to 7 matches. The Old Lady is fresh from a victory over young Boys in UCL.
Paulo Dybala rose to the occasion in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Argentinean scored a hat-trick to win the game 3-0 in favor of the black and whites. He may be rested for the upcoming game and Ronaldo will be leading the attack against Udinese.
The Portuguese superstar is slowly getting into his usual self at Turin. He has 3 goals in 7 appearances for the league leaders. The last league fixture against Napoli saw Ronaldo helping the team with assists also.
Udinese vs Juventus Head to Head
In the last 6 meetings Juve had the upper hand winning 4 games and Udinese has only 1 win. Juventus are undefeated in 13 of the last 14 games against the team from Udine in all competitions.
Udinese vs Juventus Predictions
Juve have been drawing at first half and then wins the game in most of the games. So it may be the case against Udinese too.
Since the forwards Mandžukić and Ronaldo are looking in good touch there will be goals from them too.
Considering their power in scoring from set pieces both Chiellini and Bonucci are also in the hunt for goals.
