Their unbeaten start to the season ended with a 3-1 defeat away at Lazio last weekend. Juventus' previous game was an uninspiring 1-1 draw with Sassuolo and they need to become more ruthless as they bid to overhaul league leaders Inter. Cristiano Ronaldo and co should be able to take three points from Sunday’s game, as they have a strong recent record against Udinese, who are poor on the road.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Right-back Juan Cuadrado ushered in a second-half capitulation against Lazio after he was sent off in the 70<sup>th</sup> minute. He will be suspended for this game and Danilo will deputise. Miralem Pjanic is also suspended, Sami Kedira is out for three months and Ricardo Bentancur is a doubt after suffering a strained knee ligament. That may force Aaron Ramsey to drop into a deeper role alongside Blaise Matuidi and perhaps Emre Can if Adrian Rabiot is not fit to return. Cristiano will expect to partner Paulo Dybala in attack, with Federico Bernadeschi pulling the strings behind them.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Captain Kevin Lasagna was on target as Udinese held Napoli to a 1-1 draw at Friuli last time out. Yet Luca Gotti’s men have a dreadful away record this season, with five defeats in seven road trips. They have scored just five goals and conceded 15 in that time. They have quality midfielders like Rodrigo de Paul and Rolando Mandragora in their ranks, but they have been poor at the back and blunt in attack so far this season. Centre-back Samir is injured.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Juventus need an emphatic win to galvanise their title bid, and Udinese should provide suitably obliging opposition. Maurizio Sarri’s side have won their last three home matches against Udinese, who do not travel well. Juve have a midweek Champions League game to contend with, but they are already assured of top spot in their group, so they can afford to rest players. Their injury problems in midfield are concerning, but Sarri has a big squad at his disposal and he should be able to field a solid trio in the middle of the park.</p><p><strong>Tips: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Boyle Sports">Juventus to win and over 2.5 goals at 1.87 (20/23) with Boyle Sports</a>; <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Unibet">Juventus to win to nil at 1.91 (10/11) with Unibet</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
