Team News

  • Cosmi has something close to his typical XI available and he's going to use it.
  • His only doubt may be in the right wing position and the midfielders supporting Calaiò.
  • Mannini is trying to win the right sided berth from Sestu, while Zè Eduardo may replace one of Rosina and Valiani.
  • Coach Maran has to deal with some absentees in all positions, with Spolli and Bellusci in defence, Izco and Biagianti in midfield, and Barrientos up front all absent.
  • Rolin will therefore retain his position in the centre of the defence together with Legrottaglie.
  • Salifu will play in midfield, while Castro will partner Bergessio and Gomez.

Prediction

  • Siena ended their streak of 8 points in 4 matches with the home defeat against Roma, but the Bianconeri have another chance to obtain points at home and the knowledge that they have been able to collect 17 points so far should keep them confident enough about their ability to avoid relegation.
  • Catania are dropping down the table after losing twice in a row, and they are yet to win away from the Massimino having only collected 3 points out of 7 away matches.
  • Given Catania's recent bad form, Siena should definitely try to take this chance to get out of the relegation zone. Nevertheless, Cosmi must keep his patient and balanced attitude, avoiding mistakes and trying to win in the long run. Catania are missing some key players, so Maran will probably travel to Siena thinking about getting a point and re-organising before the next match.
