After recording just six wins in 13 Serie A games this season, the Old Lady is desperate for three points on Sunday night. This is our Juventus vs Udinese Preview.
Juventus Recent Form & Team News
A shocking 3-0 loss against Fiorentina (Dec 23) saw Juventus lose their first Serie A match at Allianz Stadium (2011) by a goal margin of 3+ goals. It was also their first SA loss this season, and with the court’s decision to annul the walkover against Napoli taking effect, Juventus have slipped down to sixth place (W6, D6, L1).
Juventus have now won just two of their previous five SA home outings (D2, L1), netting under 1.5 team goals in three of them, with the hosts scoring an own-goal, failing to convert a penalty and seeing a red card across the last two. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that Juventus have scored exactly twice in at least one half in five of their last six SA home wins.
Player to watch: Álvaro Morata has scored three of his last four competitive goals beyond the hour mark.
Andrea Pirlo will be without suspended Juan Cuadrado, but all the other players are available for this match.
Udinese Recent Form & Team News
Udinese lost to Benevento in the last round (2-0) and saw their unbeaten run end after six Serie A matches (W3, D3). Don’t expect much action from the visitors, as five of their previous seven league outings have featured less than 2.5 match goals, with Udinese failing to score in three (D2, L1).
However, four of their last five SA away matches have seen both teams hit the net and combine for over 3.5 match goals in three. Udinese remain unbeaten in four away league matches (W2, D2), scoring seven of their nine goals on the road this term in the last three. Moreover, the visitors have won both SA away matches to see them lead at HT.
Player to watch: We might expect some second-half action from Rodrigo De Paul. He netted two of his three SA goals in the opening ten minutes after the break.
Hot stat: No team has kept more clean sheets in SA during the calendar year of 2020, than Udinese (12).
Luca Gotti cannot count on Rodrigo Becao (suspension), Mato Jajalo (knee), and Bram Nuytinck (calf). Stefano Okaka (thigh), Thomas Ouwejan (muscle), and Sebastian Prodl are also out.
