Giampaolo fired up for Juventus

Catania boss Marco Giampaolo tells his side they must be “perfect” to beat Juventus. “It's not hard to motivate my players for this game.”

The Sicilians welcome Juve to the Stadio Massimino this evening and hope to maintain their unbeaten home record, having notched up four wins and three draws. Only three goals have been scored against them here.

“We must focus on team spirit to make up the gap in quality,” said Giampaolo.

“It's not hard to motivate my players for this game, so we can concentrate on the details in training.

“We have to be tactically perfect and always push forward when we have the ball.

“I am confident as I have faith in my players, especially the strikers.”

Maxi Lopez leads the way, though defenders Nicolas Spolli, Blazej Augustyn and Giuseppe Bellusci are out of action.

Catania squad: Andujar, Campagnolo; Alvarez, Capuano, Marchese, Potenza, Silvestre, Terlizzi; Barrientos, Biagianti, Carboni, Delvecchio, Gomez, Izco, Ledesma, Llama, Martinho, Pesce, Ricchiuti, Sciacca; Antenucci, Mascara, Maxi Lopez, Morimoto
