Scorers: Dybala 19′, McKennie 79′.

There’s been constant speculation over the future of Paulo Dybala in recent weeks but he put the uncertaintity to one side to fire Juventus ahead after 19 minutes.

Arthur’s incisive pass found Moise Kean who produced a clever flick to send the Argentine through on goal before he slotted the ball into the top corner.

Dybala could have had a second mid way through the second, this time linking up with Álvaro Morata before his placed shot flashed just wide of the far post.

Udinese then had an appeal for a penalty turned down when Beto was sent tumbling in the box by Federico Bernardeschi but neither the referee or VAR deemed collision to be a foul.

Moments later, the game was done.

Mattia De Sciglio got the byline and produced a looping cross which was met by the head of the on-rushing Weston McKennie to put the game beyond all doubt.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are unbeaten since the end of November and now find themselves up to fifth place and closing in on the Champions League qualification spots after a tricky start to the season.
