Juventus travel to Stadio Fruilli to face Udinese on Matchday 35, aware of the fact that a victory will put them on the brink of yet another title. Meanwhile, the home side head into this contest fully conscious that a surprise victory will be enough to secure their Serie A status for another season.

As they dwell in a position, where they will have to prevail for the remainder of the season and be denied of a chance to stop Juventus from attaining a 9th successive crown.
Despite giving solid accounts of themselves against in form Sampdoria, Lazio and Napoli, the hosts ended the sequence with just one extra point to their name. With a 7 point advantage and more favourable fixtures to come, Luca Gotti will remain confident that survival can be secured with minimal fuss.

Juventus got back to winning ways after a convincing win 2-1 over Lazio in their previous fixture and face Udinese in a crucial Serie A clash. Cristiano Ronaldo took his goal tally to 30 for the season with a brace, as the league leaders moved 6 points clear at the top, with a game in hand. Maurizio Sarri’s men can almost taste a record extending 9th Scudetto triumph but are not in the clear just yet.
With 4 games remaining Inter Milan and Atalanta, who’ve played one game more than Juve, are still mathematically in the title race. And the Old Lady are currently 8 points clear of closest rivals Inter Milan after their 2-1 win over Lazio, but ending their rivals’ own title hopes. Juventus need just 4 points to secure a record another league title, but this time the feat has not yet been done in any of Europe’s top 5 divisions.
Trying to stop them are a Udinese side, who still are looking to mathematically secure their place in Serie A for the next season. They are currently 16th in the table and 7 points clear of 18th placed Lecce, having endured a tough campaign first under Igor Tudor and then Luca Gotti which included a 10 game winless run at the start of 2020.
Head to Head
Looking at their past head to head results, going back to 2017 it reveals that these encounters have not been good ones for Udinese. They haven’t managed to get themselves any wins at all whereas Juventus have just been too good for them, beating them in 100 per cent of those match ups.
But the meetings between the two sides have all been high scoring fixtures, with 21 goals being scored in the last 6 encounters. In the 91 times, these sides have clashed in the Italian top-flight, Juventus have won 62 times, Udinese have been victorious in 12 matches while 17 games ended in a draw.
The Old Lady also have a 5 game winning streak against the hosts and produced a brilliant display in the reverse fixture earlier this season. In a game, where they inflicted a loss 3-1 over Udinese at the Allianz Stadium, with Ronaldo netting a brace and the Portuguese striker is back again for more.
The Title Race
After breaking their 3 game winless streak against Lazio, Maurizio Sarri’s men will travel to Udine to face a struggling Udinese at the Stadio Friuli on Thursday. With 36 points at 16th position in league standings, Udinese still face the risk of joining Brescia and SPAL in the Serie B next season. Motivated by their win over Lazio, Juventus will look for another win against Udinese to maintain their advantage in the title race.
The hosts have kept 4 clean sheets since the restart, 2 more than Juventus but it will be difficult to control an in form Ronaldo, who is eyeing for a top scorer’s award. Paulo Dybala has been a wonderful right hand man for the Portuguese striker and their deadly combination can prove too much to handle for the hosts.
Since it is difficult to see any other outcome other than an easy win for Juventus in the fixture but Udinese have put in some brave performances against big clubs in Roma, Napoli and Lazio recently. Though the hosts are expected to put up a fight before going down, Ronaldo and Co. cannot afford to give them a win.
