Immediately a couple of crosses in the rosanero area, very high rhythms. Calapai header left alone inside the area. Weak impact, Pelagotti blocks it without problems.
Palermo is not there and comes forward. De Rose is close to the shot from inside the Etna area. After the first 10 minutes of fire now lower rhythms and study phase, with Catania controlling the ball. Catania protests for detention by Marconi on Russini launched at the net. Valente tries to break through on the right, but Rosaia is very good at stopping him before he picks up speed.
De Rose warned for a foul on Greco, but the game is wide open. Palermo has come forward in the last few minutes. Penalty for Catania. Naive foul by Odjer on Biondi. The episode that triggers nervousness. Head to head between De Rose and Pinto, the latter is booked. GOAL OF CATANIA, Moro transforms the penalty by displacing Pelagotti.
The game stopped, illness for a fan in the stands. After the entrance of the stretcher, which headed towards the Curva Nord, the game resumed. It a hard-fought match, but Catania is better. Palermo tries to come forward but with few ideas. Palermo timidly ahead. On the development of a lineout, the squads put a dangerous cross with their head, but Stancampiano blocks before Brunori’s intervention.
Claiton was warned for fouling Soleri.Catania is one step away from 2-0. Ball recovered by Greco, who snatches it from Marconi and puts it in for Moro. The center forward does a great job with a side for Russini who pulls a little left to the side. Odjer tries, but he shoots in the stands. Left-footed shot from the edge of the area, which is very far from being successful.
A nice long ball from De Rose for Brunori, but the pink 9 fouls Monteagaudo to win it. Ball to Catania. Brunori and Soleri try to bring Palermo forward. After an exchange between the two, the Italian-Brazilian makes a tense cross in the area, which is not intercepted by any rosanero player. Pelagotti saves Palermo. Nice save by the pink goalkeeper on Biondi, who shoots with his left after having easily jumped Biondi.
One minute of recovery, the final whistle comes after a thrill for Palermo, with Russini coming close to scoring with a left-footed shot to cross, which goes just wide. The first half of the Sicily derby ends with Catania ahead for 1-0. The result was deserved by the team from Etna, which also had several chances to double. Palermo ahead in a few situations, without ever managing to create noteworthy dangers.

Palermo seems to have entered with the right attitude, but Catania is increasingly dangerous. Once again Moro is very close to the shot but is anticipated by Marconi. Palermo with a high center of gravity. The pinks seek equal but risk a lot with Etna counterattacks.

Russini is booked for fouling De Rose. A confusing phase of the game. Palermo attack with many men but never manage to get the last pass right. On the other hand, Catania on the counterattack managed to enter the area with just a few passes.
Soleri is very close to breaking even. Great action from Palermo: De Rose widens for Almici who puts in for Soleri, the latter manages to shoot not without difficulty and does not hit the goal for a very short time.
Double change for Catania: outside Greco and Maldonado, inside Izco and Provenzano.
Russini expelled. Do it on Brunori who costs the second yellow. The Etnean footballer is desperate for the referee’s decision. The inertia of the match is in favor of Palermo.

Crivello tries from the edge of the area. A docile shot easily saved by Stancampiano. Catania remains dangerous: Calapai’s conclusion that Pelagotti accompanies out with his eyes. Red for Almici. He pushed the ball boy.
