Serie A Standing BEFORE the game:
Catania, 20th position with 9 points and a negative goal difference of -18
Hellas Verona, 6th position with 25 points and a positive goal difference of +2
Catania failing to win this home game. Yet, a tiny bit of ray to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Catania needed a victory to breathe because they are in the last position with only 9 points, though, with this draw just getting 1 point! At least, Catania not losing, but not giving space to Hellas Verona to claim a victory. Point blank, it’s a live crisis for Catania winning only 2 games this season. Imagine, before the game, Catania and Hellas Verona played the last time in Serie B, eight years ago, with a favor for Catania. Contrary to Catania’s poor results, Hellas Verona who were promoted from Serie B are having a rocking time in Serie A.
