The Stadio Friuli – Sunday – Kick-off 6:30pm GMT.

Udinese will be glad of a home fixture in the opening match against Juve this season. This would be a psychological advantage ahead of the return leg.

A new season begins for Udinese; the team is ready to take up the challenge

During last season, Udinese reached the 14th position in the standings after a hard year. For this season, they will have to make an extra effort if they want to be on top of the Serie A.

In spite of the fact that last year the team struggled with a negative record of 58 – 42, now it’s time to learn from their mistakes and try to make a good season.

Luca Gotti will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of one of his Udinese players.

Juve head into a new season with the aim of stepping up a gear and become one of the top teams in the competition

During last year, Juve reached the 4th position in the standings after a hard year. Regarding this season, players must train hard and play every game as if it is their last to survive in the Serie A.

Last year, the team showed what they were capable of in the Serie A with an imposing record of 77 – 38 goals that allowed them to be one of the top flight teams in the league.

It is likely that three key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Massimiliano Allegri and his Juve team.
