Team News

  • Both Legrottaglie and Bellusci are out, so Rolin will partner Spolli in the centre of the defence.
  • Maran will probably start with a 4-2-3-1 with Izco on the right wing, and the chance to bring him back into the midfield in a 4-3-3.
  • Ricchiuti may get some game time in the second half.
  • With Samuel and Silvestre injured and Ranocchia suspended, Stramaccioni has no option but to field Chivu and Juan Jesus as centre-backs.
  • As Nagatomo is injured as well, Alvaro Pereira should take his place at left-back.
  • Gargano and Cambiasso are battling for one spot in the midfield, where Kuzmanovic and Kovacic seem safe to play.

Prediction

  • Catania are chasing a European spot and they are picking up pace. Their form at home is great, with 13 points in the last 5, which means that they will not settle for a draw against a direct rival.
  • Inter avoided defeat in the derby last week, but this tricky trip could see them out of the European places in the table. Stramaccioni will have to cope with some absences in defence, and that has been Inter's weakness since November.
  • The hosts will probably control the game and set the pace, trying to use the full width of the pitch with Izco and Gomez. Rocchi will probably start for Inter, to give Cassano some rest and maybe have him fresh in the second half of the game. Strama could be planning a defensive first half and then going for the win later in the game.
