The reigning Serie A champions haven’t looked this powerless in the last ten years as they do now, so every next match might be crucial for title ambitions. They are already ten points behind AC Milan so the first match in 2021 on Sunday against Udinese has huge importance.
The first and foremost task is to beat the opposition and regain confidence after humiliating display and home loss to Fiorentina 0-3.
Udinese’s fans are hoping their team can outsmart the reigning champions once again after beating them in the previous campaign at Dacia Arena 2-1.
Allegedly Cristiano Ronaldo was furious after the loss to Fiorentina, holding a speech in front of all players in the locker room and reminding everyone how big this club is. Is that going to have any effect in upcoming weeks?
Some dare to say that Old Lady is already out of equation when it comes to title race, especially when Italian court decided that match against Napoli should be played and took three points from Juventus. The biggest problem so far is low number of wins (six)/high number of draws (also six).
Udinese have had more success playing on the road this season (two wins, two draws and two losses) but we don’t think they are in position to stop Juventus right now.
The Zebras got defeated by Benevento at home last weekend, so even finding a way to Old Lady’s net would be surprising to us.
PREDICTION: Total goals scored will be Over 0.5
