Udinese vs Juventus – Serie A: Udinese is in 13th place with just 6 points, and they’ve only won 1 out of their last 5 league matches…
The team has 2 wins and 6 losses, but I will highlight the fact that those 2 wins were at their own stadium, against Sampdoria and Genoa.
In terms of goals, the team has been a surprise, because they have been better at finishing than what was expected, because they have already scored 13 goals in only 8 matches, with 8 of those goals being scored at home.
Their biggest problem is definitely the defence, because they have already conceded 15 goals.

Juventus is in a position they aren’t used to being on the last couple of years, sitting in 3rd place of the Serie A, already 6 points behind Napoli, although they can shorten that disadvantage to 3 points if they win here.
This season, Juve has already felt they will have strong contention for the title, because Lazio, Inter and Roma will have a word to say on the title fight. Still, the 2 biggest contenders are obviously Juventus and Napoli.
In the league the team has 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. The negative results have only appeared on the last 2 rounds, drawing 2-2 at Atalanta and then losing 1-2 at home against Lazio.
Offensively the team is still strong, but defensively the team is committing more mistakes than they were last season.

Udinese vs Juventus – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Obviously Juventus are clear favourites to win this match, but I think that Udinese can very well create a lot of troubles to Juventus, especially because this Juventus side isn’t doing so well defensively.
Mainly due to Bonucci’s departure to AC Milan. That created a hole in the defence and therefore Juventus has already conceded 7 goals in the league.
Despite Juventus’ better quality, the fact that even Sporting was able to create Juve a lot of trouble, might favour Udinese, especially in the later stages of the match.
Since Udinese are playing at home, I strongly believe they will be able to score against Juventus, and therefore I’m going to believe there will be goals for both sides.
