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.
