Juventus will claim their ninth-consecutive Scudetto on Thursday evening if they win at Udinese.
Perennial Italian champions Juventus haven't been at their best since lockdown, neither in terms of results or performances, but they stand on the brink of yet another Serie A title, which would be their first under former Napoli and Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri.
That's thanks to a narrow 2-1 victory over challengers Lazio on Monday evening, thanks to a brace from star man Cristiano Ronaldo, with a penalty and the easiest of tap-ins taking his total tally to 30 league goals this season - now joint level with Ciro Immobile, who also scored from the spot for their opponents that night.
The Portugal international became the fastest-ever player to reach 50 goals in Serie A history in that Monday night win, and has been in particularly good form of late, notching nine goals in eight Serie A appearances since the season resumed. He's just 8/13 to score anytime here, 13/5 to score two or more and 10/1 to bag a hat-trick.
Per their total dominance of domestic football in Italy in recent years, they've made short shrift of Udinese in particular, winning the last six meetings in a row and scoring 11 goals past them in the last three. They romped home to a 4-0 victory in the Coppa Italia in January, and cruised to a comfortable 3-1 win in the reverse fixture in Turin shortly before Christmas.
Udinese have failed to win their last three matches, but put up a good fight in their last outing, a 2-1 defeat to Napoli that was only sealed by a 94th-minute match-winner from Matteo Politano. They can't afford to be too complacent here, however, as they're down in 16th and just four points clear of the relegation zone.
We recommend backing Juventus to get yet another comfortable win over Udinese here. There's little value - just 1/2 - for a straight away win, so it's worth considering a correct score bet. A repeat of the 3-1 scoreline that played out the last time these two sides faced off in the league certainly appears eminently possible
