LAST MEETING


November 10, 2010: Catania 1-0 Udinese

Catania defeated Udinese 1-0 to continue their stupendous home form. A Maxi Lopez header on the hour-mark proved to be the difference between the two sides. Both teams ended with ten men each after Giovanni Pasquale was sent off for the visitors on 83 minutes and then Pablo Ledesma saw red just three minutes later.

Antonio Di Natale scored twice against Cagliari last weekend and now has netted 24 goals in the league this season. Against Catania the Italy international striker will strive to add to his tally

M. López

Position: Attacker

Maxi Lopez will be Catania’s main weapon in Udine against Udinese and the Argentine striker will hope to make a difference. Lopez has been in disappointing form this campaign and will attempt to raise his game against Serie A’s most attractive team this season.
