Juventus vs Udinese
Juventus is coming from amazing win in champions league R16 second leg. Away in London they eliminated Tottenham. After 2:2 at home, Juventus won in England 1:2. It was complete dominance of the Spurs, especially in the first half. Though, the referee missed to give Juventus IMO clear penalty in first 45 minutes. In any case, 1:0 at HT. And then big second half comeback when in just few minutes Higuain and Dybala brought important victory for Juventus.
I know it is not recommended to bet such teams after European clash. But this time I will make exception no matter of possible tiredness, no matter of possible meltdown. Cause Juventus is simply too great team and with deep roster. Who ever play today, I believe we will see very strong starting eleven.
Udineze IMO is ideal opponent for Juventus. Namely the guests have no worries about survival while in the same time they have no aspirations to positions that leads to Europa League qualifications. Plus this team is in poor form right now after losing three straight games and scoring just one goal during this stretch.
In the first mutual game earlier in the season on Udineze pitch, we saw Udineze scoring first but already until halftime it was 1:2 in favor of Juve and huge 2:6 at the end.
Udineze in general in recent seasons had zero success in this H2H.
Juventus in London was without Mandzukuc but the mentioned Higuain was ready after some missed practice. He left the pitch late in the game. We will see who will play in attack today but as I said, who ever starts, we should have strong eleven.
Juventus is not so dominant in Italy like in some of previous seasons. This time Napoli is big contender. But they failed last time at home vs Roma, 1:4 and the only reason why Juve is still on second place is the fact Juventus played one game less. But Juve could break through the leading position already now even with game in hands cause Napoli is having in this round another tough game, away against Inter.
By the available info the official absences are: For Juve, Alex Sandro, Lichtsteiner, Cuadrado, Bernardeschi.
For Udineze, Larsen, Danilo and top scorer Lasagna.
