Chievo pushed back trying to score and putting alot of pressure on Catania but nothing was getting by Mariano Andújar and Catania won there 3 pre season game.
Rolando Maran said this after the game: ” I do not watch the result, as I did after the defeat against Vicenza, I just want to understand where we improve and where we have gaps. We are well underway, we are on the steps that we predicted on the eve of the withdrawal. We still lack a bit of shine in front of goal, but it’s all due to accumulated fatigue during workouts. We’re trying to play short, we get in a good condition for the Cup debut in Italy. Morimoto? he will be good in Catania today, today I liked. ”
Positives for Catania;
Cristian Llama played outstanding for Catania, lets hope he can stay fit.
Takayuki Morimoto looks to be ready for a starting spot.
Lucas Castro looks to be a huge pick up for Catania as he is looking to be as good as Alejandro Gómez.
Catania are lacking up front.
Giuseppe Bellusci is out injured.
Not playing simple.
