Juventus 0-0 Juventus: Juventus v Udinese
Juventus are hoping to avoid another defeat at Udinese in their Champions League semi-final first leg with the hosts after taking control in the first half thanks to a brace from their new-look goalkeeper, Andrea Belotti.
The Bianconeri scored twice in the second half to give Juve the lead through the back four, but Udinese equalised through a penalty from Federico Fazio.
“The first half was a nightmare for the whole team,” said Udinese coach Stefano Pioli after the game.
“It was difficult to stop them, but the last 10 minutes were not easy.
It was a very tough game for us.”
Juventus are hoping for a third consecutive victory as they face their first ever semi-finals against Udinese on Thursday.
Belotti started for the hosts in the 2-2 draw at Stadio San Paolo in midweek.
“We are delighted to have scored two goals against Udine,” said Piolis.
“Our team had a difficult match against Udini but they were not the best side, they were only in the top half of the table.
They will try to keep that form up in the next game.”
Udinese are currently bottom of Serie A after a 3-1 home defeat to Juventus on Sunday.
