Serie AJuventus vs Udinese Italian Serie A match will kick off at 20:45 GMT +01:00 on Saturday 28th January. On the 20th day of the Serie A, Juventus will face Udinese, a team that is exceeding everyone’s expectations. Udinese are third in the table whilst Juventus are leading the Serie A with a point above their rivals AC Milan. Juventus are in great form as they still have to lose a game this season.
