Juventus vs Udinese Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday afternoon, the series champion receives from Turin Udinese Calcio. The Turin are currently second in the table, just one point behind the leaders, with Juventus playing one less game. The Turin are currently playing an outstanding season. In addition to the championship, the Old Lady is also in the Coppa Italia final and in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The situation of Udinese looks quite different. With 33 points, the team occupied only the eleventh place in the table. Especially through the defeats in the last three games Udine gambled the chance of European games in the next season. The odds also see the Turin in the role of favorites. Since these are too deep for us, we have made our tip a bit more difficult.
The Old Lady said last Wednesday that they still belong to the top of Europe. In the second leg of the Champions League last round, the Bianconeri turned the game within three minutes. The English dominated the first half and came to numerous opportunities. South Korean Son Heung-Min scored Tottenham 1-0 in the 39th minute to give Wembley Stadium an ecstatic sting. The Italians increased pressure in the second half and played out their experience. Only two shots needed the Turin for two goals. The two Argentines Higuain and Dybala made the difference. Especially Higuain is in blinding form: in his last six games he scored nine goals! Nevertheless, Paolo Dybala is the top scorer of Northern Italy. With this victory in the second leg, the Italians qualified for the round of the last eight in the premier class.
The Massimilano Allegri team is on course for success again this season. In the Coppa, the reigning Cup winner went through each round without much effort. The eighth and quarter-final won Juventus 2-0. The Turin Derby filled the Allianz Stadium on 3 January. Even in the semifinals Atalanta Bergamo had nothing to oppose. In the first leg in Bergamo Higuain met already after three minutes and steered so that the game in the desired path of the Old Lady. Also in the championship the Tifosi have reason to cheer. The Turin have won every game for twelve rounds. Particularly impressive is the defensive performance of the Turin: No goal conceded the Juve defense in the last ten games. Thus, no Italian team defeated the bulwark of the master. Therefore, we do not expect Udiense to score in this game.
The starting position for Udinese looks quite different. Already in the second round of the Coppa was the final stadium for the footballers from Udine. In Naples, Insigne scored for the home side on 71 minutes, scoring the only goal of the game. Thus, the northern Italians since December focused on the championship, where a place among the top six should be achieved. By the end of the first round, this endeavor seemed realistic. Udinese had 27 points and finished eighth with just four points behind the desired sixth place. In the past seven games, the squad of coach Oddo scored only six points. This makes it clear that Udinese will again be in midfield this season. Already in the last season, the Northern Italians finished only 13th.
The shape curve of the team shows steeply down. The last three games Udinese lost all. Therefore, we expect a weak performance and thus a defeat in the upcoming match against the champions. Away, the team from Udine always go out of their way. In 2018, they only won the game in Genoa, plus a draw in Verona. Elsewhere, Udinese lost the games against Lazio Roma, Turin and Sampdoria Genoa.
