Juventus will be looking for an improved result here after the 2-1 Supercoppa defeat in their last game at the hands of Inter Milan.
Juventus haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They have claimed a sum of 11 during that period while also conceding a total of 7.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Juventus:
- haven't lost in the league to Udinese in their previous 3 games.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Since being beaten in their last game against Atalanta in Serie A competition, Udinese will be aiming to make amends here.
In that game, Udinese had 39% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Udinese was Beto (88'). At the other end, Atalanta got 21 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. Mario Pašalić (17'), Luis Muriel (22', 76'), Ruslan Malinovskyi (43'), Berat Djimsiti (59' Own goal), Joakim Mæhle (89') and Matteo Pessina (92') scored for Atalanta.
Showing their predisposition for action-packed matches, we’ve had goals 30 times in the last six matches in which Udinese have played, making it a mean average of 5 goals each fixture. Opposition teams have got 14 of these goals. That trend won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.
Going into this one, Udinese have left without a victory over Juventus when they have played them away from home in the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good at all.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head meetings going back to 15/12/2019 tells us that Juventus have won 4 of these and Udinese 1, with the number of drawn games standing at 1.
A lot of goals were also scored during this period, 23 in all at an average of 3.83 goals per match.
The last league clash between the two was Serie A match day 1 on 22/08/2021 which finished with the scoreline of Udinese 2-2 Juventus.
That time, Udinese managed 44% possession and 12 shots at goal with 6 on target. The goals were scored by Roberto Pereyra (51') and Gerard Deulofeu (83').
Juventus had 10 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Paulo Dybala (3') and Juan Cuadrado (23') scored.
The match was refereed by Ivano Pezzuto.
Team News: Juventus
Aaron Ramsey (Unknown Injury), Leonardo Bonucci (Muscular problems) and Federico Chiesa (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will be missing for Juventus gaffer Massimiliano Allegri.
It looks as if Juve look set to kick off with a 4-4-2 system this time, utilising Wojciech Szczesny, Juan Cuadrado, Matthijs de Ligt, Daniele Rugani, Luca Pellegrini, Weston McKennie, Arthur, Rodrigo Bentancur, Dejan Kulusevski, Paulo Dybala and Moise Kean.
Team News: Udinese
We are inclined to think that Bianconeri Friuliani might elect for a 3-5-2 lineup, starting Daniele Padelli, Nehuen Perez, Bram Nuytinck, Iyenoma Udogie, Brandon Soppy, Tolgay Arslan, Walace, Jean-Victor Makengo, Marvin Zeegelaar, Beto and Gerard Deulofeu.
In this game, Udinese will do really well to put one past a Juventus lineup who should fashion the chances to find the net multiple times while not conceding.
We predict a convincing 3-0 margin for Juventus when all is said and done.
