After losing to Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League finals, Juventus must finish in the Serie A top six to qualify for next season’s edition. To do that, the club, which is offering a -105 price in the Seria A lines, must defeat Udinese and expect Atalanta or AS Roma to lose.
As for Udinese, the Friulani have nothing to play for, but playing without any pressure makes them a dangerous opponent.
Udinese: High Note Finish
Defeating Juventus won’t make any difference for Udinese, the clib would still finish 12th. However, after losing their last three games in a row, Udinese wants to finish the season on a high note to thank their fans.
Most recently, they suffered a defeat against Salernitana. They were up 2-0 before the 30-minute mark, but the home side turned things around in the second half and won 3-2. William Troost-Ekong scored the winning goal in the 96th minute.
Udinese lost Marvin Zeegelaar due to a red card. That means he won’t be able to play on Sunday.
Overall, Udinese has been slightly better at home, losing three of their previous 18 games but only winning six. Most recently, they lost 1-0 to Lazio but also managed to draw 1-1 to Napoli, the team that won the title.
Regarding the soccer lines, they’re offering a +280 price to win straight up.
Crazy. That’s the best word to describe Juventus’ season. The club has no possibility of finishing in the Serie A top four. In other words, they won’t play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Instead, they could end up playing in the UEFA Conference League, which isn’t a tournament for powerhouses.
Midseason, Juventus lost 15 points as punishment for a transfer-related case. Later, they won the appeal and regained those points. However, the case was reopened, and they ended up losing 10 points for good.
As if that wasn’t enough, they lost their last two games, 4-1 to Empoli and 1-0 to AC Milan. Seven of their 10 defeats were on the road, only winning four of their last 10 road games. However, they finished with a clean sheet in those victories.
Juventus is the Seria A betting favorite for the match, thanks to a -105 price.
Udinese vs Juventus Head-to-Head

Udinese vs Juventus Picks and Prediction
Forget about the Las Vegas Soccer odds for a moment. These two teams hate each other, which is why you can expect a back-and-forth battle. However, considering what’s on the line, I expect Juventus to win by one goal, as in two of their last five meetings. Regardless of whether they qualify for the UEL or not, Juventus must win for honor. Plus, it would be like an apology letter to their fans.
