Juventus vs. Udinese 2016: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch online

Juventus need to show that they can still be a dominant team, and Udinese might have to bear the brunt of their wrath because of it.

Juventus are sitting proud on top of Serie A, but things feel far from perfect for the five-time defending champions of Italy. They have yet to truly look like the dominating force they can be this season, thanks in large part to a wide range of changes this summer, and this match against Udinese is a good chance to show that they're really on track to become the power they can be.

Manager Max Allegri is still tinkering with his rebuilt side, trying to find the right combinations in midfield and attack to really get things ticking along. The injury absence of Claudio Marchisio hasn't helped him any in his efforts to get his team playing at their best, but Marchisio is expected to be available again for this match. That would be a huge boost to their quality and chances of actually looking like Juventus again, and fans will be eager to see just how good Marchisio can make their side look.

Udinese, on the other hand, just want some good news. Between a four-match winless run and a swath of injuries, the news has been nothing but bad for them of late, and they're sitting one perilous point above the relegation zone. It's been a rough few years for the Zebrette, but a win over Juventus in Turin would be a massive boost to their confidence and could lift them out of their misery. It will take one hell of a fight for Udinese to win this match, but if there's one thing you can always guarantee about this team, it's that they will always fight.
