Catania will be without striker Gonzalo Bergessio for at least two months after he sustained a fracture in the 4-0 loss at Juventus.
A challenge by Giorgio Chiellini on the Argentine resulted in a fractured fibula for the Stadio Massimino hitman.
Bergessio, who posted a picture of his X-rayed leg last night, is expected to be out for eight to 12 weeks.
He has scored one goal in nine games for far this season for the struggling Sicilian outfit.
