THE TEAM NEWS

UDINESE

  • Udinese were failed to win for the third game in succession as they were defeated by Napoli in heart-breaking circumstances at the weekend and while they still are not in any immediate danger of relegation, they could still get sucked into trouble.
  • Udinese took a shock lead thanks to Rodrigo De Paul’s effort midway through the first half but they could not hold on for long with Napoli levelling less than 10 minutes later and that forced Udinese to sit even deeper.
  • They came under huge pressure and looked to be standing firm until Napoli snatched the three points in the fifth minute of stoppage time and after that setback, they come into this with further injury issues with Walace a doubt while Mato Jajalo looks set to miss the remainder of the season.

JUVENTUS

  • Juventus moved a step closer to retaining their Serie A title as they put a run of three matches without a win behind them by edging Lazio on Monday and another victory here would all but secure top spot.
  • After a goalless first half, Cristiano Ronaldo put Juve ahead from the spot in the 51st minute and he wasted little time in doubling his side’s advantage as he struck against just three minutes later.
  • Lazio made it a nervy ending as they scored a penalty of their own in the final 10 minutes but Juve held on to move within touching distance of the title, although they will come into this game without the suspended Leonardo Bonucci while Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala, Mattia De Sciglio and Giorgio Chiellini are all doubts.

THE PREDICTION

Juventus can move another step closer to securing the Serie A title as they take on Udinese. The league leaders ended a three-match winless run by overcoming Lazio on Monday and they will be eager to build on that to get the title sealed as quickly as possible. Udinese find themselves at the wrong end of the table and could yet face relegation trouble if results do not go their way. Juve have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six and while they should win, they look set to concede once again with Udinese scoring in six of their last seven matches.
