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.

CATANIA (4-3-3): 1 Frison; 2 Peruzzi, 6 Legrottaglie, 3 Spolli, 22 Alvarez; 8 Plasil, 13 Izco, 17 Guarente; 19 Castro, 11 Leto, 28 Barrientos.
