JUVENTUS – UDINESE
Can anyone stop Juventus in the Serie A this season? This is the question everybody asks himself for another year. So far the answer is not very positive, taking into account that The Old Lady lost points in just one of their first seven games in league – against Inter at the San Siro. Juve are currently alone on the top in the Serie A with 18 points, which guarantees them four points of advantage on the top ahead of Napoli.
In their next game the Turin giants are welcoming Udinese at the beautiful Juventus Stadium. Udinese are not enjoying a very good season in the Calcio so far. The former Champions League participants are currently just one point above the relegation zone in Serie A, having won just one of their last five games and losing three of them. Udinese lost their last two matches in the Serie A – against Sassuolo and Lazio. Even more alarming is that they scored just six goals in their first seven games of the new season, which is making it even more difficult for them to win points.
Juventus on the other hand scored 15 goals so far and conceded just four, which makes them the team with the best defense in the Serie A so far. This fact is probably not surprising for anyone who follows closely Italian football.
Juve have the best defenders in the league, but they also have the best striker in the Serie A as well. Gonzalo Higuain started the season off the bench, but now he’s becoming more and more important for the Old Lady. El Pipita already scored six goals for the team in the league and he’s once again the big favourite to become the topscorer of the Serie A. Expect to see him on the scoresheet against Udinese as well.
