Catania may have dropped points recently, but Rolando Maran assures they want to “keep on dreaming” of Europe when they welcome Cagliari this afternoon.
It kicks off at the Stadio Massimino at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT). Click here for a match preview.
“It is going to be a very important game for us and we have to get a result in order to keep on dreaming,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
“We’ve got to all stick together, seeing as there are so few games left this season. We have always done well on home turf and hopefully we’ll continue that against Cagliari, though they have quality strikers and can cause us problems.
“I want us to channel the anger we feel after the defeat to Lazio. That was a match we lost when we seemed to have the victory in hand.”
However, the Sicilians have to do without Francesco Lodi after he underwent surgery on his hand, Sergio Almiron and the suspended Pablo Barrientos.
“Our identity has to remain the same even without important individual players. As for the system, we tested out two options in training and I’ll decide which to adopt.”
Catania squad for Cagliari: Andujar, Frison, Messina; Alvarez, Augustyn, Bellusci, Capuano, Legrottaglie, Marchese, Potenza, Rolín, Spolli; Biagianti, Castro, Izco, Ricchiuti, Salifu; Bergessio, Çani, Doukara, Gomez, Keko, Petkovic
