Juventus host Udinese at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday evening and they will look to continue rising up the Serie A table on Matchday 17.
The Bianconeri go into the game on the back of a 1-0 victory against Cremonese, whereas the Zebrette drew 1-1 at home to Empoli. La Vecchia Signora remain third in the league table and they are now seven points behind Serie A leaders Napoli while the Friulani are eighth and have not rediscovered their early season form.
Juventus are now the form team in the league after winning a seventh game in a row, whilst Napoli’s winning run was halted by Inter.
