    Juventus took just one point from their last two matches in Serie A. The Bianconeri are now four points off first-place Inter after 23 games.

    Will our Forebet algorithm predict a win for Juventus this weekend against Udinese in Serie A?

    Udinese are dangerously close to the relegation zone. They are a club that has teetered close to the drop in the last few seasons. This may finally be the campaign in which Udinese go down.

    Just one point separates the Zebrette from the bottom three in Serie A. They failed to win their last five Serie A games, taking just two points during that time.

    Udinese failed to score in the last 180 minutes of football. Playing against Serie A’s second-best defence will be difficult for them.

    Juventus are coming off a 1-0 loss away to Inter last weekend. The win gives Inter the advantage in the title race, especially due to them having a game in hand over Juve.

    Although Juventus fell to a defeat on the road, they should feel confident of picking up a win at home against lowly Udinese.

    The Bianconeri are unbeaten at the Allianz Arena, with eight wins and three draws. They outscored their 11 opponents at home 17-5.

    Udinese, on the other hand, failed to win any of their last five away games. Nine of their 19 points have come on the road this term. The Zebrette have scored the second-fewest goals on the road, with a mere eight.

    Juventus do not score a lot of goals, just 36, but they have a strong defence. The Bianconeri have been miserly against Udinese in the past.

    They kept four consecutive clean sheets against Udinese in all competitions, winning all four of those matches by a combined 7-0.

    Since 1994, Juventus and Udinese have met 58 times, with the former posting a record of 41W-8D-9L. The Bianconeri outscored Udinese 112-41 in their previous 58 meetings.

    Striker Dusan Vlahovic is Juventus’ goal scoring stats leader with 12 goals. He is second in the goal scoring charts in Serie A this term behind Inter’s Lautaro Martinez. Federico Chiesa is second on the team in scoring, with six goals.

    Udinese’s Lorenzo Lucca leads the team with six goals. The Zebrette are a low-scoring team, with just 23 goals this season. They average just 12.6 shots per game.

    Our goal prediction for Monday’s clash is for Juventus to claim a decisive 3-0 win over Udinese. It will be the Bianconeri’s fifth straight clean sheet win over the Zebrette.
