Juventus v Udinese: Juve win 2-1 in Turin
Juventus have now beaten Udinese on two consecutive days, after they had taken a 1-0 lead at the break.
Udinese had lost three successive matches at the start of the season, including a 1/1 draw with Milan in March.
Juve will now try to repeat the feat in Turino on Saturday.
The Bianconeri started brightly, but their chances of a comeback were limited by the threat of Lazio’s Gianluigi Buffon.
Udina had just one shot on target and the game seemed to go out of hand in the second half when Buffon found himself on the wrong side of the penalty spot.
The referee ruled that the ball should have been played out for offside, meaning Udinese were awarded a penalty kick.
The goal was disallowed.
Udini were unlucky not to take the lead, but Juve are still unbeaten in Serie A this season.
Parma had been looking in good form since the arrival of Francesco Totti in February, but the Giallorossi failed to get the better of Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday and the visitors had their hopes of a second consecutive win evaporated after 65 minutes.
Juvie captain Simone Zaza was booked for a second booking in three matches for diving and the hosts were fortunate not to concede a third.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was also disappointed with the penalty decision and the result is likely to further cloud his side.
“I’m disappointed with that decision because it’s very difficult for me to accept that,” Allegri told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“That’s the way I look at it.
I can’t change that decision.”
Lazio were unlucky to lose their third successive match at the Gazzettini on Saturday, falling behind in the 27th minute before Udinese levelled in the 39th.
Lionel Messi had a goal disallowed for off-side, but Udinese goalkeeper Giuseppe Rossi was also yellow carded for an illegal challenge on the Uruguayan.
