Juventus Turin extended their winning streak in Serie A on Saturday – but continues to perform unconvincingly in the new year. Italy’s record champions won against Udinese Calcio 1-0 (0-0), Brazilian World Cup participant Danilo ensured shortly before the end (86th) for Juve’s eighth league win in a row.
Turin (37 points) took second place in the table behind leaders SSC Napoli (41).
On Sunday (8.45 p.m.), champions AC Milan (36) could overtake AS Roma again. On Saturday evening (8.45 p.m./DAZN) Inter Milan (33) also had the chance to continue to put pressure on Turin in the game at newly promoted AC Monza.
Juventus have won every league game since mid-October, making up for a poor start to the season. After the World Cup break, the victories at US Cremonese (1-0) and now against Udine seemed extremely difficult.
