Maran: 'Beating Juve not impossible'

Catania Coach Rolando Maran is not afraid of welcoming Juventus tomorrow. “Nothing is impossible and we want to give our fans a dream.”

The Bianconeri extended their unbeaten run to 47 Serie A matches and take to the field at the Stadio Massimino at 11.30am UK time on Sunday.

“We know the type of test that awaits us, so must be perfect and give even more than usual. I can see the lads really believe in themselves and we are ready to sacrifice ourselves to get the result.

“Tomorrow’s game can only be seen as a motivating force. It would be a dream to beat Juventus and we are ready to do everything possible to give our fans that dream.

“If we are to beat the Bianconeri, then we must surprise them,” continued Maran in his Press conference.

“Juventus are a side without weak spots, as they are still unbeaten in the Champions League too.

“Naturally we will try to limit Andrea Pirlo’s influence on the game, as all their attacking moves start from him.

“The hard work of the strikers in tracking back will be very important, as we need everyone to work their socks off to bring home the result. Our strength is in unity and we are aware that by playing as a team unit we can beat anyone. We’re fired up and we’ll prove it to you!”

Catania squad for Juventus: 21 Andujar, 1 Frison, 34 Messina; 22 Alvarez, 33 Capuano, 6 Legrottaglie, 12 Marchese, 2 Potenza, 3 Spolli, 5 Rolín; 4 Almiron, 28 Barrientos, 27 Biagianti, 19 Castro, 13 Izco, 10 Lodi, 24 Ricchiuti, 30 Salifu; 9 Bergessio, 35 Doukara, 17 Gomez, 15 Morimoto
