Serie A Showdown: Juventus vs Udinese Preview
Juventus suffered an almighty blow to their Serie A title chances last weekend when they narrowly beaten by their closest rivals, Inter Milan.

- Date – Monday, February 12th
- Kick Off – 19:45
Venue – Where the Action Unfolds
Juventus will have home advantage for this fixture with the game taking place at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
Team Form – Recent Performances
Before Saturday’s loss to Inter Milan, Juventus were in superb form and had looked collecting points in their pursuit for the title. Their loss to Inter was only their second defeat of the season, and before that they had won three and drawn one of their previous four games.
Udinese enter the game in awful form and haven’t won since December 23rd. In their last five fixtures, Udinese have lost three and drawn two and they’re very close to slipping into the relegation zone.
Tactical Battle – Managers’ Strategies Unveiled
Max Allegri will not be deterred with his Juventus side after the Inter Milan loss, and he’ll be fully confident his side can bounce back against Udinese. Allegri often likes to use a target man and he’ll want Dusan Vlahovic central to all his team’s attacking play and that will mean the influential Federico Chiesa will need to play close to him to benefit from his sound play.
In his second stint as Udinese manager, Gabriele Cioffi will have been hoping for a more relaxed time at the club. Udinese are not a possession nased team and the bulk of their suvvess this season has come via long balls with Udinese having some success in the air. It’s unlikely they’ll be able to outplay Juventus by passing so going long could be their best bet.
Key Players – Influential Figures on the Pitch
Juventus’s campaign has largely been built on the attacking prowess of Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic. The pair have been instrumental in Juventus’ push for the Serie A crown, and they’ll be looking to boost their numbers further when Juventus welcome Udinese.
It’s been a hard season for Udinese, but they have been helped by the sturdiness of Walace in their midfield. The Brazilian has been their most impressive player, and the club has also been helped by the attacking contribution of Lorenzo Lucca.
