Udinese vs. Juventus: Preview and TV schedule

Valerio Pennicino

Juventus will extend their lead at the top of the Serie A table to eight points with a win over Udinese on Monday.

Juventus' lead at the top of the Serie A table was provisionally sliced to five points with AS Roma's win over Atalanta this weekend, though Antonio Conte's side will restore their eight-point advantage with a win away at an underwhelming Udinese on Monday.

Francesco Guidolin's side come into this fixture on the back of a defeat to Fiorentina, and currently sit down in a disappointing 14th place. They've got nothing but pride to play for now, but at least there's a lot on offer against Serie A's defending champions. Unfortunately the zebrette haven't beaten Juve since 2011, and have lost all four of their last meetings.

For this match, Udinese will be without goalkeeper Ivan Kelava and midfielders Andrea Lazzari and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu. Juventus have centre-back Andrea Barzagli and winger Simone Pepe sidelined through injury, with all of their key first-teamers available. However, Udinese will be hoping Conte elects to rest some of his key players ahead of their Europa League semifinals against Benfica.

Udinese injuries and suspensions

Out: Ivan Kelava, Andrea Lazzari (injured); Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu (suspended). In doubt: None.
