Juventus vs Udinese Preview

Juventus vs Udinese

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Allianz Stadium

Date: 8th March 2019

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Juventus all but ended talks of a title race when they secured a 2-1 win over Napoli last weekend and they can now begin to countdown to when they can be crowned Italian champions again with games to spare when they take on Udinese in this game.

The Old Ladies have opened up a 16 points gap on Napoli with 11 games to go, so they should be able to see off Udinese here and prepare for a more important Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid next week.

Their win over Napoli was their 4th consecutive in the Italian Serie A and their loss to Atletico Madrid is only second to their 3-3 draw against Parma in games they have failed to win in their last 6 fixtures.

Udinese are still aiming for that magic 40 points that would secure their top flight status, but they are currently not in relegation danger.

As a matter of fact, they come into this game with a 12 point cushion on the relegation zone, so a defeat would still not hurt them too much, so expect them to play with more freedom than the host and try their best to stop Juve’s momentum.

Boomakers have priced Juventus up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this tie while goal markets point to an exciting game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.

Cristiano Ronaldo is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.

This match gets underway at 19:30 BST.
