Javier Pastore hopes Palermo repeat the 3-1 win they recorded against Catania earlier in the season when the two Sicilian sides meet again on Sunday.
Palermo are confident again after ending a five-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory at home to League leaders Milan before the international break.
"I am fine," Pastore said. "The games with the national team help you grow.
"Now I am concentrating on the game with Catania, a game that we must prepare for with a lot of attention because it's a difficult game.
"I remember the first derby this season very well. It was too important a game for me and for Palermo.
"Winning a derby is one of the most beautiful things. We hope to replicate it on Sunday."
