Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Catania

#ConteHugs - Claudio Villa

Now that we've got Fiorentina out of the way until next season, we can talk about somebody else for a change. And unlike the past few games where Juventus have been a Fiorentina side that is battling for a spot in Europe next season, they will be facing a club that will probably be gunning for something a little different as we hit the final 10 games of the 2013-14 campaign.

Like staying out of dead-last in Serie A, for instance. Or, maybe, not getting relegated and sent to Serie B.

Yep, the best against the worst. That's what the league table is telling us about today's game between Juventus and Catania at the Stadio Angelo Massimino. How bad has it been for cellar-dwelling Catania? Here's a bit of a comparison for everybody to gander at:

  • Catania has all of four wins on the season.

  • Juventus has four wins — since the final week of February.

See what I mean?

Two different teams going in completely different directions. Juventus, regardless of overall form at the moment, just continues to build its lead atop the Serie A table. Catania, however, is the exact opposite. Their point total (20) is almost a quarter the amount of Juve's (75) this season. And as they sit 20th out of 20 teams and four points away from safety, the realization of what might happen in a few months is probably starting to really sink in right about now.

What fun there could be!

So get ready for a bunch of Argentinians — and that's not including Carlos Tevez or Dani Osvaldo — on the field. Maybe grab your Federico Peluso or Rubinho jersey and pull up a chair. Starting lineups for both teams will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available.
