Ciro Ferrara welcomes back Eder and is sure Sampdoria can cause problems in Sicily against Catania.
“We’ve still got our battle helmets on and never took them off, even if that is no guarantee of victory,” said the Coach.
“For example, we shot ourselves in the foot against Udinese and their goalkeeper was decisive on more than one occasion.
“Catania showed great strength on home turf and we know that we’re facing a fast, very aggressive team that is particularly sharp on the one-on-one.
“It is a difficult game and our approach will be crucial. I realise the Stadio Massimino is a passionate atmosphere, but my team is made up of professionals in Serie A, so they must be ready to play in any environment.”
