Udinese vs Juventus / Serie A – This match in the eighth round of Italian Serie A, brings us two old rivals, while Udinese is currently only 14th on the table and has 13 points less than the leading Juventus. Of course, all this suggests to us that the team from Udine has very little chance in this Saturday’s duel, especially because they against the “Old Lady” from Turin had a series of four defeats and only one draw.
Udinese vs Juventus begins 06.10.2018 at 18:00 CET
Before this Saturday's duel, Udinese somehow relies the most in the fact that Juventus’ players are exhausted because of their performance in the Champions League, while they are after the early elimination from Coppa Italia focused exclusively on the championship. Admittedly, they were also defeated in the last two rounds, with 2-1 at home by Lazio and away against Bologna, while they were in the first five rounds able to win eight points, so they currently have three points more than teams from the relegation zone.
However, what is perhaps the most important point for the team of Udinese before this Saturday match is that they were defeated all three times with only one goal difference, so they will surely be set very brave on Saturday with the aim to offer the best resistance to the favoured Juventus. As for their composition, it will probably remain the same as in the previous appearances, especially since the injured midfielders Badu and Balic and striker Ingelsson are still out of action.
Probable lineups Udinese: Scuffet – Larsen, Troost-Ekong, Nuytinck, Samir – Behrami – Pussetto, Mandragora, Fofana, de Paul – Lasagna
What more to say in favour of Juventus, except that they are this season stepping towards their eighth consecutive Scudetto, especially after last week’s home win of 3-1 over their first companion on the table, the team of Napoli. So after seven rounds played, the “Old Lady” from Turin has six points more than the Neapolitans, while we also need to add that Juventus is the only team from these strongest league in Europe, which has maximum impact this season.
Namely, coach Allegri's players have in addition to seven wins in the same number of games played in Serie A, and they were very successful in the first two rounds of the Champions League, because they were defeated by the Spanish Valencia for the first time with 2-0, and then last week at home with 3-0 by the Swiss Young Boys. Otherwise, the young striker Ronaldo had to miss this match due to injuries, but he will now against Udinese certainly be in the starting 11, as opposed to injured defender de Sciglio and Spinazzola and suspended striker Douglas Costa.
Probable lineups Juventus: Szczesny – Cancelo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Alex Sandro – Emre Can, Pjanic, Matuidi – Dybala, Mandžukić, Ronaldo
