The 17th round Serie A match between Juventus and Udinese is scheduled to take place on 07/01 at Allianz Stadium.
The Bianconeri have now accrued a total of 34 points, placing them in third place overall in the table.
With 25 points, their Udinese opponents are currently in eighth place overall.
Seven of the 25 league goals Juventus and Udinese have combined to score this season have been scored after the 80th minute!
So perhaps a late drama is on the cards here?
Juventus’ most recent game was a narrow 0:1 away victory against Cremonese in the Serie A on January 4. The team has been successful four times in a row now.
Two of their previous five games had over 2.5 goals, and one had goals from both sides. During these, the Bianconeri were able to keep four clean sheets while scoring at least one goal each time. According to the statistics, the team’s previous 5 games saw an average of 2.00 goals scored!
Wednesday’s match between Udinese and Empoli ended in a 1:1 draw at the home stadium. The team has gone nine games in a row without a victory, losing three and drawing six of those games.
It may seem strange, but in Udinese’s last ten matches, playing at home has actually worked against them, as the visitors came out on top three times while the home team managed just one victory.
Udinese kept one clean sheet and they didn’t score in only one of those. The total of netted goals by the sides involved across their last five outings amount to 11!

Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.03
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.96.
Only two of Juventus’ last seven home league victories featured more than 2.5 goals scored, reflecting their reliance on tight victories and low-scoring games in their strong home form.
Perhaps this statistic has convinced the market that Juventus will win despite the game being close as the over/under lines suggest!
