Udinese vs Juventus: Match previews
Under-presure coach Andrea Pirlo admitted that his inconsistent Juventus side put in another sub-par performance in their draw at lowly Fiorentina last weekend, as they again disappointed on their travels.
Though Alvaro Morata scored a second-half equaliser less than a minute after coming off the bench at Stadio Artemio Franchi, that was Juve's only shot on target in a game where they bossed the ball, but to little effect.
As Pirlo's future remains deeply uncertain, everything now rests on the Turin giants' qualification for next season's Champions League - an absolute minimum requirement which his team must fulfil. Recent results, though, have left third-placed Juventus locked on 66 points with Napoli and Milan going into the weekend's action, while Lazio continue to lurk close behind.
The Coppa Italia finalists, who face Atalanta in the showpiece final - due to host a limited number of fans, it has been confirmed - have now won just three of their last seven league games after crashing out of the Champions League and are in danger of receiving a swift comeuppance, given the club president's apparent derision for Europe's elite competition.
Of late, the Bianconeri have toiled somewhat in the final third, as top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo's rare failure to hit the net in his last three starts (the last time he missed out four times in a row was back in 2017) has come amid rumours of a summer departure - and the absence of bright spark Federico Chiesa from the attack has further undermined their cause.
Nevertheless, Juventus have won six of their last seven Serie A games against Udinese ahead of their trip to the Dacia Arena, racking up 14 goals in their last five visits. They will, therefore, see a viable chance to add to a relatively meagre tally of 25 away points so far this season - currently fewer than any other team in the top six of the standings.
Udinese vs Juventus Predictions
Scrap on the cards at Stadio Friuli
Juventus desperately need to beat Udinese this weekend to strengthen their top four credentials and I Bianconeri should get the job done in a low scoring contest at Stadio Friuli.
It’s hard to envisage Udinese getting anything from this fixture after losing their last three outings here, although Juve don’t exactly represent great value at around 1/2 after winning just one of their last six starts on the road (D3, L2).
Andrea Pirlo’s side have been patchy throughout the campaign on their travels with just six wins bagged from 16 games, but we’re handing them the narrow vote via our 0-1 correct score prediction.
Indeed, a lack of goals should be the focus for punters in this clash with all of la Zebrette’s last eight home matches producing under 2.5 goals, while less than three have also been netted in six of Juve’s last eight away trips.
On that basis, under 2.5 goals rates a solid pick for this Sunday’s action in Udine as Juve continue to focus on salvaging their disappointing season.
Udinese’s last eight home games have produced under 2.5 goals.
Six of Juve’s last eight away trips have also generated under 2.5 goals.
The hosts have lost their last three outings at Stadio Friuli.
