Juventus appear to have turned a corner in Serie A this term, and they look to continue their upward trajectory this weekend. Udinese will be the visitors to Turin, as they bid to end a five-game run without a victory in Italy.
Serie A Preview
The goal at the start of the season for Juventus would have been to finish in a Champions League spot, and they are certainly looking good value to achieve that at present. They come into this second game following the World Cup sitting third in the standings, and they could rise to second with a victory this weekend.
The Old Lady have recovered from a very slow start to the campaign in recent months, as they have won their previous five matches in Serie A. They were made to work incredibly hard for their first win following the World Cup in mid-week, as Arkadiusz Milik scored the winning goal in the first minute of injury time. It could make for compelling viewing if they can maintain this winning run, as they are edging closer to the summit in Italy.
Udinese comes into this fixture in contrasting form to the Old Lady, as they have failed to win in their previous five Serie A games. However, they remain in a very prominent position in the league standings, and could yet enter the fight for a European spot if they can turn the tide back in their favour.
The Italian side remains eighth in the standings after their quick start to the season, but they are now five points off the top six in the Serie A standings. They returned to domestic action in midweek, as they played out a 1-1 draw against Empoli. A point was rescued by the home side in that fixture when Roberto Pereyra scored the equaliser with 20 minutes remaining.
Juventus vs Udinese Head to Head
The Old Lady boasts an excellent record in this fixture, as they have avoided defeat in their previous four matches against Udinese. During that run, they have picked up three wins, including a 2-0 success in the previous meeting. Udinese’s only win in the previous 13 came with a 2-1 victory in July 2020.
Juventus vs Udinese Prediction
Juventus appear to be a team pulling in the right direction at present, and that gives them a solid chance of achieving a Champions League finish this term. Given Udinese’s form, we expect them to maintain their winning sequence this weekend.
