Catania two points away from Milan

Catania boss Vincenzo Montella and his outfit are winning widespread plaudits today and the statistics underline why.

The Corriere dello Sport has this morning pointed out that the Sicilian club are one of the most in-form sides in the Division.

If you consider just the results since the second half of the season began, Catania would be joint second in the table with Napoli – and only two points behind Milan.

Montella’s men have won five, drawn three and lost just one of their last nine in the Division. That defeat was a 3-1 at Juventus.

Yesterday, after the 1-0 win over Lazio, Montella had to cool links with a possible summer move to Inter or Napoli.

Catania are next in action when they visit Napoli in Serie A.
