Juventus are struggling somewhat in the league this season. They sit sixth in the league table, 10 points behind league leaders AC Milan with a game in hand. Despite Cristiano Ronaldo being in good goalscoring touch, Juventus have found the going tough so far.

Udinese, on the other hand, sit 12th in the league table. Key midfielder Rodrigo De Paul was linked with a move to Juventus in the summer, and could prove to be crucial in this game.

Juventus, despite their inconsistencies, will be the favorites to win the game.
