Juventus vs Udinese begins 08.03.2019 at 20:30 CET
If there was any dilemma will Juventus again win the title it was resolved in the previous round. In the previous round Juventus went to Naples to face 2nd-placed Napoli having advantage of 13 points. Even if they lost they could hardly drop such advantage by the end of season but since they won the Scudetto is theirs. Juventus was also lucky since the home team was left early on with 10 players and it used the situation to take lead of 2-0 but its victory become questionable after Pjanic was sent off. Napoli scored and had a penalty in the finish of match but it missed it. Now, Pjanic and Cancelo are suspended.
Probable lineups Juventus: Szczesny – de Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, A. Sandro – Bentancur, Can, Matuidi – Bernardeschi, Mandzukic, Ronaldo

Match with Bologna was even more important since the opponent was first below the red line. Udinese struggled but it won by 2-1. Midfielder Mandragora is suspended and Fofana will play instead.
