Udinese vs Juventus preview
It is imperative for Juve that they get off to a winning start and convert some of the disappointing draws from last term on the road into wins.
The 2020-21 campaign saw Juve drop points away to the likes of Crotone, Benevento, Verona and Torino, and Allegri will be looking to regain the side’s winning mentality which saw them grind out wins even without playing to their best.
During the coach’s first spell in charge, the club won five consecutive titles and Allegri knows how to get the best out of his players.
