Team News

  • Eros Pisano is suspended and will be replaced on the right side of defence by Sampirisi.
  • A different solution would be having Rossi as right-back with Jankovic playing just in front of him.
  • Immobile and Borriello will start up front, leaving Floro Flores on the bench.
  • Coach Maran will be without two key players due to suspension: both Lodi and Legrottaglie will not travel to Genoa.
  • Rolin should replace the former Milan and Juventus defender, while Almiron will be the playmaker.
  • Bergessio is expected to lead the attack, unless Castro is fielded instead and Gomez plays as false nine.

Prediction

  • After picking up 5 points from three matches, Genoa had a big chance of obtaining more in an away match when they took the lead at Cagliari, but then the final result didn't go their way. They are now third from bottom and winning at home is now mandatory.
  • Catania proved themselves able to get points even when missing a key player like Lodi and against strong opponents, by beating Roma 1-0 and keeping a clean sheet against one of the strongest attacks in the league.
  • The hosts may not be confident enough yet to try to control the match, so they are likely to leave possession in Catania's hands. The Sicilians will probably slow down the match at the start to study their opponents and try to understand where it would be more convenient to strike. The visitors won't be able to rely on set pieces without set piece specialist Lodi and the aerial threat of Legrottaglie.
