Udinese slumped to their sixth defeat in eight games as they were beaten 1-0 at Lazio and so drop down to 14th, but they’re 14 points clear of the relegation zone, so that shouldn’t be a concern. Juve, meanwhile, made it seven wins on the bounce as they beat Empoli 2-0 at home and so remain seven points clear at the top.
Udinese have lost three of their last four at home and all four visits from top-six sides so far, though only Lazio beat them by more than one goal as they lost 2-1 against both Napoli and Inter, while it was 1-0 against Roma. Indeed, they’ve conceded more than twice in only one of their last seven meetings with Juve since 2013/14, with five of these games featuring less than three goals.
Juve have triumphed by 1-0 or 2-0 scorelines in six of their last seven matches and in each of their last three on the road. They’ve led at the break in only two of their last 13 away, while Udinese have trailed at the interval in just one of their last seven at home, drawing at half-time in four of their last six when hosting top-seven sides. We’re backing Draw/Juve HT/FT and Juve to win and Under 2.5 Goals.
