Catania form and stats

3-1-3 (win-draw-lost) are the Serie C: Girone C numbers at home for Catania so far this season.

Catania lost their last game at Taranto (placed 8th) after a 2-3 scoreline. The defeat against Taranto was especially painful as the deciding goal against was scored four minutes into stoppage time (by F. Bellocq).

Preceding that match was a defeat to Foggia (1-2).

A decent goal production from Catania in their home games so far, with 13 goals from 7 league matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Catania defense is not exactly impregnable. 12 goals conceded from 7 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.
