Udinese vs Juventus: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Juventus fans are demanding that Massimiliano Allegri's side challenges for the Serie A title this season, and their task begins away at Udinese.

-

Juventus will commence the 2023/24 Serie A season in the same way that they ended the previous campaign, with an away trip to face Udinese at the Dacia Arena.

The Bianconeri finished seventh last season, albeit, with a points penalty given due to capital gains fraud while the Zebrette ended the campaign in 12th place. Both teams played each other in Udine in the final round of the 2022/23 Serie A season, which saw La Vecchia Signora scrape a victory by a solitary goal.

Juventus have also been banned from the Europa Conference League, which should give the Bianconeri and their coach Massimiliano Allegri enough time to prepare for Serie A matches. Udinese often enter a season with minimal expectations, but they emerged as an early contender for a spot in Europe in Andrea Sottil’s first campaign in charge and might fancy themselves to produce another surprise.

Udinese vs Juventus: Predicted line-ups

Udinese will miss Kingsley Ehizibue with a knee injury, which will keep him out for another three months, while Gerard Deulofeu is out indefinitely with a knee injury of his own. Without the Spanish forward, Florian Thauvin will be expected to provide flair and creativity.

Juventus will start with their best line-up possible, but Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli will require further tests if they are to feature against Udinese, while Mattia De Sciglio is still on the sidelines with a knee injury. New signing Timothy Weah should be expected to start in the right wing-back position.

Udinese predicted XI vs Juventus (3-5-2): Silvestri; Perez, Bijol, Masina; Ebosele, Zarraga, Wallace, Lovric, Zemura; Thauvin, Beto

Juventus predicted XI vs Udinese (3-5-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Alex Sandro; Weah, Miretti, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Chiesa, Vlahovic
