The Sicilian club made an official complaint to the Lega Calcio about World Cup-winning defender Marco Materazzi playing in the fixture, when days earlier he had pulled out of Italy´s friendly clash with Portugal because of injury.
A statement said: "Materazzi answered the national team call-up, therefore his participation in the Catania game is considered legitimate."
