Catania have confirmed Sergio Almiron will miss the game with Genoa due to injury, a huge blow as they are already without Francesco Lodi.
The Argentine underwent tests today that showed a first degree lesion in the adductor of his left thigh.
Almiron will be out of action for at least a couple of weeks, if not more.
Lodi is already absent as he continues his three-match ban for violent conduct.
