Lazio have a very tricky trip to Catania and field Antonio Candreva in support of Miroslav Klose against the Sicilian trident.
The Biancocelesti are still in that third Champions League spot despite their 3-1 home defeat to Bologna, while the Elefantini are remarkably in the running for Europe too.
Alejandro Gonzalez and Francelino Matuzalem are suspended, joining the injured Javier Garrido, Marius Stankevicius, Senad Lulic and Stephen Makinwa.
At least Giuseppe Biava and Lionel Scaloni return from suspension, while a few injured players like Tommaso Rocchi and Abdoullay Konko are now able to sit on the bench.
Catania miss Marco Biagianti, Marco Motta and Alessandro Potenza, so Giuseppe Bellusci and Giovanni Marchese are the full-backs.
Catania: Carrizo; Bellusci, Legrottaglie, Spolli, Marchese; Izco, Lodi, Almiron; Gomez, Bergessio, Barrientos
Catania bench: Kosicky, Capuano, Llama, Seymour, Lanzafame, Ricchiuti, Ebagua
Lazio: Marchetti; Scaloni, Biava, Dias, Radu; Brocchi, Ledesma; Candreva, Hernanes, Mauri; Klose
Lazio bench: Bizzarri, Diakitè, Konko, Zampa, Alfaro, Kozak, Rocchi
