The Bianconeri will be going all out to extend their one-point lead at the summit of Serie A when they face Udinese in Sunday evening’s 18.30 CET kick-off at Juventus Stadium.
Having spent yesterday working in separate groups, Antonio Conte reunited his troops at Juventus Center for a predominantly tactical-based session.
The reigning champions approach the encounter boasting five wins and as many clean sheets from their last five league games, with Gigi Buffon’s goal remaining unbreached for over 460 minutes.
Even more encouraging is their record against Udinese, who have been beaten on the last three meetings between the two sides, shipping 10 goals in the process.
But the Zebrette, who lie in mid-table, responded to back-to-back defeats against Catania and Inter with last week’s win over Fiorentina, reigniting their hopes of breaking back into the hunt for a Europa League finish.
Conte’s men will therefore need to remain on full alert against a team featuring the goalscoring talents of the evergreen Antonio Di Natale, and paid great attention to the specific moves to be deployed on Sunday evening during this morning’s training session.
Ahead of tomorrow’s final preparations, the manager will reveal his thoughts to journalists during his pre-match press conference to be held at 10.00 CET.
