Catania v Fiorentina; On The Road Again

67493837
Delio Rossi will be looking for another result with another makeshift lineup

Fiorentina visit the Rossoblù of Catania this evening in another important relegation avoidance match. Catania are three points ahead of La Viola and Fior will be looking to narrow, if not close, that gap.

Catania have been high flying as of late with two wins and a draw, they took a 2-0 lead over Inter late into the match last week, before giving up two goals and the tie to a furious Inter comeback, they only managed a tie against Cesena midweek, however.

Fiorentina are coming off a road tie which saw them score two goals, but give up a late penalty which saw Parma finish the comeback. Two golden chances for a late Viola victory were just misses as Andrea Lazzari drifted them both wide.

Stevan Jovetic, Valon Behrami and Matija Nastasic are unavailable for Fiorentina, the first to injury, the second two to yellow card accumulation.

Ruben Olivera and Houssine Kharja are back, from suspension and injury, respectively. Sergio Almiron was sent off in the final stages of that Cesena game and is therefore suspended, while Andrea Campagnolo, Marco Biagianti and Alessandro Potenza are sidelined
