Juventus's chances of winning the Scudetto were nearly dashed as they lost 1-0 to Udinese at home, leaving The Old Lady seven points behind champions Inter Milan. The hosts were without Dusan Vlahovic in the attack, and after Arkadiusz Milik wasted their best opportunities, Lautaro Giannetti, a January acquisition from Udinese who had previously played for Velez Sarsfield, scored a close-range rebound on minute twenty-five.
The first delivery from a right-wing corner went out of play, and Milik subsequently had a goal rightfully chalked off for Juventus on the hour. That was the closest the home club got to opening up the visiting rearguard. Due to the outcome, second-place Juventus continue to struggle after losing to Inter in their most recent Derby d'Italia match. Despite playing one more match than the leaders, they are still seven points behind them.
