Manager Massimiliano Allegri takes Juventus to the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo aiming to close the distance on Italy’s elite, with seven points currently separating his side from Atalanta in fourth.

Earlier this week, Moise Kean’s header lifted Juventus to a 1–0 win over Malmö and past Chelsea as winners of their Champions League group.

Juventus hasn’t won four games in a row since October, but a Week 17 visit to an opposition sitting just five points off the relegation places could provide a boost.

Kean could take Alvaro Morata’s spot up front after proving the difference mid-week, though there are certain to be changes to the side that bested Malmö.

Goalkeeper Mattia Perin will be between the posts for Juventus, while Daniele Rugani, Koni de Winter and Arthur look most likely to give. That should allow the likes of Matthijs de Ligt, Juan Cuadrado and Manuel Locatelli to come back into the XI, with Federico Chiesa, Aaron Ramsey and Dejan Kulusevski still on the treatment table.

Central defender Pietro Ceccaroni is unavailable for the host after he was sent off in Sunday’s 4–3 defeat against Hellas Verona, Venezia’s third successive loss and a second straight at home.

Serie A: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Saves Point For Milan At Udinese, Juventus Held At Venezia

Zlatan Ibrahimovic snatched a late point for AC Milan in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Udinese which gives the Serie A leaders' title rivals a chance to steal top spot, while Juventus drew 1-1 at Venezia to slip up in the Champions League race. Ibrahimovic struck with an acrobatic effort in the 92nd minute to claim a point for the Rossoneri but Inter Milan, who are two points behind their local rivals in second, will end the weekend in first place if they beat struggling Cagliari at the San Siro on Sunday.

Napoli are a further point back and can move level on 39 with Milan before Inter kick off with a win over Empoli in Naples, with some of their key players including Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Lorenzo Insigne back in the squad.

Also waiting in the wings are Atalanta, who sit fourth but are only five points behind Milan ahead of their trip to Verona on Sunday afternoon.

Milan are in the midst of a injury crisis, with starting centre-back Simon Kjaer out long-term and forwards Olivier Giroud, Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic all sidelined, and it was another low-key display after being dumped out of Europe by Liverpool midweek.

"The boys know they aren't playing to the best of their abilities," said Milan coach Stefano Pioli.

"We need to do better and I'm convinced we will because we have ambition and the ability to both understand our mistakes and work on them."

Beto put the hosts ahead 16 minutes into Gabriele Cioffi's first match as Udinese's caretaker boss when he whacked home on the rebound after Mike Maignan had saved his first effort when clean through on goal.

Beto could easily have sealed the points for Udinese in the closing stages when he slipped a close-range finish just wide, and Ibrahimovic got something from the game for his underwhelming team when he took Daniel Maldini's knockdown and thrashed home a barely deserved leveller.

Juve slip

Mattia Aramu earned promoted Venezia an excellent point against Juve with a curling low drive nine minutes after half-time.

The 26-year-old's fifth goal of the season, which equalised Alvaro Morata's 32nd-minute opener, moved Venezia six points away from the relegation zone.

Juve meanwhile are sixth after being leapfrogged by Fiorentina -- 4-0 winners over Salernitana earlier in the day -- and are six points behind Atalanta, who sit in the final Champions League spot.

Matters were made worse for Juve by the early loss of Paulo Dybala to injury, the latest of a series of niggling problems for the Argentine.

The 28-year-old, who was substituted at half-time of Juve's 1-0 win over Malmo on Wednesday, limped off the field in the 12th minute and after being replaced by Kaio Jorge was seen with a bandage around his right knee.

"I'm worried, we risked it a bit," said Allegri to DAZN.

"On Wednesday he left the field with a light muscle problem. We thought he was OK but instead that wasn't the case."

Vlahovic strikes again

Dusan Vlahovic is two goals clear at the top of the scoring charts in Italy after taking his tally this season to 15 with a brace against Salernitana.

Serbia forward Vlahovic lashed home Fiorentina's second five minutes after half-time and tapped in Riccardo Sottil's low cross six minutes from the end in a thumping win at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in which Giacomo Bonaventura and Youssef Maleh scored the other goals.

Vlahovic, 21, has now scored 32 Serie A goals in 2021 and is leading Fiorentina to what looks to be their best season in years.

"Dusan is good, he needs to keep that hunger he has, he needs to keep training as he is... He has a tremendous future in front of him," said Fiorentina teammate Jose Callejon to DAZN.

Promoted

He had been barracked by supporters earlier in the season after refusing to sign an extension to his current contract which expires in the summer of 2023 but seven goals in his last five matches have brought the crowd in Florence back on his side.

Juventus Momentum Halted After Shock Draw

Massimiliano Allegri's men had won three games in a row without conceding in all competitions ahead of the trip to Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo, but they were unable to hold on to a first-half lead given to them by Alvaro Morata.

Juve, which lost Paulo Dybala to injury inside 12 minutes, was pegged back by a long-range strike from former Torino midfielder Mattia Aramu 10 minutes into the second half.

The visitors were unable to hit back against a Venezia side that had lost its past three games and conceded 10 goals in the process, placing it six points behind fourth-placed Atalanta, which faces Hellas Verona on Monday (AEDT).

Dybala's replacement Kaio Jorge flicked over from close range and Morata's drive forced a good save out of Sergio Romero before the Spain international managed to find a way through with 32 minutes played.

Luca Pellegrini sent a low cross in from the left and Morata got in front of his marker to flick the ball past Romero, the goal allowed to stand after a VAR (video assistant referee) check for a possible handball from Federico Bernardeschi in the build-up.

Juan Cuadrado wasted a good chance when firing across the face of goal shortly before the interval and Juve were made to pay as, after a spell of Venezia pressure, Aramu curled in a low first-time shot from range.

Allegri's side failed to create much in way of response, with one shot on target in the second half summing up its struggles as the contest finished all square.
