UDI vs JUV Dream11 Tips for Udinese vs Juventus Serie A Fixtures 2 May

Share

UDI vs JUV Dream11: Juventus travels to the Dacia Arena to take on Udinese in Serie A. The home side is currently in 11th place in the league table, but are just 8 points clear of relegation. They go into this game on the back of a dominant performance against Benevento that saw them win 4-2. Inter’s victory against Crotone last night meant that Juventus cannot, mathematically, defend their title anymore. They will want to qualify for the Champions League as soon as possible as that is on thin ice too. Alvaro Morata prevented another defeat as Juve were held to a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina last weekend.

Date: 2nd May, Sunday
Kick-Off: 9:30 pm (IST)
Venue: Dacia Arena, Udinese

Serie A Table: Udinese is currently in 11th place with Juventus in 5th.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Cristiano Ronaldo – The Portuguese legend has 25 goals and 3 assists in 27 starts this season. He has also created 34 chances, attempted 62 shots on target and succeeded in 52 dribbles at a 63% completion rate. Ronaldo hasn’t scored in his last 3 games but it will not be easy to keep him quiet for long.

Alvaro Morata – With 18 goal contributions (9 goals and 9 assists) in 21 starts, Morata has been quite reliable alongside Ronaldo this season. He has created 46 chances and succeeded in 57% of his attempted dribbles so far. Morata came off the bench at half-time to rescue a point against Fiorentina and will look to continue that.

Differential Pick

Roberto Pereyra – Roberto Pereyra has been a very good player for Udinese in the number 10 role. Playing behind the striker, he has 4 goals and 7 assists in the league this season. The former Watford man has created 43 chances and succeeded in 33 attempted dribbles so far. He bagged 2 assists in his last game as Udinese beat Benevento convincingly and has 3 assists in his last 3 games. The Argentine international also assisted the winning goal against Crotone, recently.

UDI vs JUV Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Scuffet
Defenders – Chiellini, Sandro, Danilo
Midfielders – Pereyra, Chiesa, Walace, Bentacur
Forwards – Ronaldo (C), Morata (VC), Okaka

Likely Winner:

Juventus have been pushed out of the top 4 and are currently 5th on goal difference. They are level on points with Napoli who face relegation candidates, Cagliari. Udinese doesn’t have a lot to play for as they are reasonably clear of the relegation zone while also be quite far away from the top 6. But they will like to upset the odds and make it tougher for Juventus. The UDI vs JUV Today Match Prediction is most likely to be a victory for the Bianconeri but it will be far from easy as they have shown immense vulnerability this season.
