The Bianconeri kept pushing for the Italian Scudetto as the defeated Udinese 4-1 yesterday in the Lega Serie A tournament.

Two goals by Moise Kean, one by Emre Can, and another by Blaise Matuidi gave Juventus the 4-1 victory over Udinese in a new fixture of the Italian Lega Serie A.

The match will surely give the Bianconeri a mood boost, as they are aiming for a comeback against Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Thanks to this victory, “Juve” continues setting itself apart from second-place Napoli in the table, with 75 points for 56 of the Blues.

The Bianconeri have won 24 out of their 27 matches, drawing three times, and are the only team in the league who has yet to lose. They have scored 59 goals and received only 17 against.

And one of the happiest players after the win was midfielder Leonardo Spinazzola.

“I am very happy for the team’s match and also for mine,” he told the club’s official website after the match.

“We played well, collecting three important points because we were well placed on the field.”

“As for me, I’m ready. The feeling with the team is excellent and also the physical condition is ok,” he continued.

25-year-old Spinazzola started his professional career with Juventus in 2012 but didn’t play a match with the Bianconeri until he was loaned seven times around Italy: to Empoli, Lanciano, Siena, Atalanta twice, Vicenza, and Perugia.
