Alberto Malesani is approaching Wednesday night's visit of Catania with caution, but promised that Genoa will win the game 'at all costs'
Both clubs go into the third round of action with four points on the board, and whilst Malesani is respectful of Gli Elefanti's strong start under Vincenzo Montella, he remains equally sure of continuing his own positive beginning with the Grifone.
"We face an opponent who we cannot have any assumptions about. They have strong foundations that are essential to defining a team.
"Catania is a side that gives away little, and immediately tries to counter-attack.
"It will not be an easy game, but we want to win at all costs. At the Luigi Ferraris, we want the three points more than the beautiful football."
