Line-ups: Catania-Inter

Inter are looking for a second straight win in Sicily tonight, but Catania seek revenge for last season’s thriller.

It kicks off at the Stadio Massimino at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT). Click here for a match preview.

Last season the Nerazzurri fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in stoppages with a Rodrigo Palacio goal.

Diego Milito, Cristian Chivu and Javier Zanetti are still out of action, but Walter Samuel was back in the squad for the first time this term.

Palacio again started with support from Ricky Alvarez, while Mateo Kovacic was in midfield.

Catania lost their opening game 2-1 to Fiorentina and were without Ciro Capuano, Federico Freire and Gino Peruzzi.

Gonzalo Bergessio recovered from a shoulder injury to start, but Pablo Barrientos was absent amid reports he’s accepted a transfer to Qatar.

Catania: Andujar; P Alvarez, Legrottaglie, Spolli, Monzon; Izco, Tachtsidis, Almiron, Castro, Bergessio, Leto

Inter: Handanovic; Juan Jesus, Ranocchia, Campagnaro; Jonathan, Guarin, Kovacic, Cambiasso, Nagatomo; R Alvarez; Palacio
