Juventus continued their winning streak in Serie A on Saturday. The team of coach Massimiliano Allegri narrowly won against Udinese at home thanks to a late goal from Danilo: 1-0. Juventus also won against Cremonese on Wednesday through a late goal from Arek Milik.
Juventus seemed to be heading for the first loss of points in eight league matches, but Danilo still secured the victory. The defender worked the ball into the net from close range after a good assumption and good cross from Federico Chiesa.
Udinese, with substitute Kingsley Ehizibue, created quite a few opportunities to score. However, Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny kept his goal clean, including an attempt by Walace.
World champion Ángel Di María made his comeback at Juventus. The 34-year-old Argentinian occasionally created danger with good preparatory work at opportunities from Moise Kean. Midway through the second half, he was substituted for Milik.
Juventus passes AC Milan through the victory, which will play against AS Roma on Sunday. Number four Internazionale will play an away match against Monza later in the evening. Leader Napoli will face Sampdoria on Sunday.
