Observation of supernovae through their neutrino emission is a major fundamental field to understand both supernova dynamics and neutrino physical properties. JUNO is a 35 kiloton scintillator detector, planned to start its activity in about 4 years. It will provide an unprecedented sensitivity to the detection of supernova neutrino bursts: while existing data consists only of the 24 neutrino events detected from SN1987A, the detection in JUNO of a supernova from a progenitor at 10 kpc will yield $\sim 5\times 10^{3}$ inverse beta decay events from electron antineutrinos, plus several hundreds on other CC and NC interaction channels from all neutrino species.
