Catania coach Vincenzo Montella will be without the services of David Suazo, Marco Biagianti, Alessandro Potenza, Pablo Alvarez and Cristian Llama who are all injured.

Claudio Ranieri's one-match ban has been overturned and the 59-year-old will be on the touchline at the Stadio Angelo Massimino on Saturday. Wesley Sneijder returned to training but is not likely to feature while Diego Forlan picked up a leg injury on international duty with Uruguay and could miss the next month. Andrea Ranocchia and Joel Obi are suspended while Ivan Cordoba is nearing a return from a long-term knee injury.

  • Catania are undefeated in their first three home games of the Serie A season (W1 D2).
  • Vincenzo Montella's side have conceded just one goal at the Stadio Angelo Massimino during the 2011-12 campaign.
  • The Sicilians have lost 21 out of their last 28 encounters against Inter.
  • Inter have emerged victorious in 10 out of their last 11 meetings with Catania.
  • The San Siro outfit have conceded eight goals in three games on the road this season.
  • Claudio Ranieri's men have given up more goals than any other team in league play so far this term (11).
