DOUBLE CENTURY - There have been 95 previous meetings in Serie A between Juventus and Udinese, with 64 wins, 18 draws and 13 defeats for the Lady. Udinese have not lost as often to any other side (67% losing rate) nor conceded as many goals (200).
SCORING DOZEN - Juventus have won 9, drawn 2 and lost 1 of the last 12 against Udinese in Serie A, never failing to find the net (33 goals scored), and have managed to defeat the Friulani at least once a season since 1989/90.
FAVOURITE FOE - Udinese are Paulo Dybala’s favourite victims in Serie A (9 goals in 16 matches). In Match Day 1 this season, the Juve number 10 scored the first goal and set up the second in the 2-2 draw.
FIRST CUT - Udinese were on the receiving end of the first goals in Serie A for Alex Sandro (January, 2016) and Rodrigo Bentancur (October, 2018), and Matthijs de Ligt’s first and only goal from outside the penalty (July, 2020).
MEAN MACHINE - Juventus boast the meanest rearguard in the last half hour of play this season (5 goals conceded - the first of which came in Match Day 1 at Udinese). Since 2000 Juventus have collected more clean sheets against Udinese (21) than against any other Serie A side.
DRAWING COMPARISONS - Since the last draw between the two sides in Turin (1-1, March, 1990), Juventus have won 22 of the 27 meetings, including each of the last five fixtures at the Stadium.
300 - Massimiliano Allegri takes charge of his 300th match in all competitions as Juventus coach. Allegri boasts a higher winning percentage than the two coaches in club history to have collected more appearances (Giovanni Trapattoni and Marcello Lippi).
