    • AS Roma
    • - IT'S ALL OVER! CONGRATULATIONS TO INTER, THEY HAVE WON THE COPPA ITALIA!
    • 90 I think the match has finished...But i'm not certain. Fights are kicking off all over the pitch and it looks as though a fan has got on the pitch...
    • 90 Smart move from Mourinho. He replaces Balotelli with Muntari.
    • 90 The Inter fans are holding up a sign saying 'GAME OVER!' It is certainly looking that way.
    • 90 Balotelli is being targeted by Roma here. He is again cynically hacked down.
    • 89 Straight red card for Francesco Totti! Balotelli has three Roma midfielders chasing him, Totti catches up with him a kicks him across the thigh. Stupid play from the Roma captain.
    • 88 Rodrigo Taddei must have a real problem with Thiago Motta. Two times in a row he has cynically fouled him.
    • 87 Mario Balotelli gets involved in yet more niggly play and earns himself a yellow card.
    • 85 The ball is shifted right to Totti and he can only shoot straight into the out charging wall.
    • 84 Balotelli pulls down Vucinic on the edge of the box. This gives Roma a free kick, just to the left, 24 metres out. A brilliant chance...
    • 84 Muntari is being readied by Mouinho.
    • 79 Motta scoops the ball through to Vucinic which the Roma striker hits first time...and just wide of the far post!
    • 78 Menez quickly turns Chivu and the Roma forward hits the deck inside the box! The referee says play on! The Roma players are furious and are surrounding the referee!
    • 77 But again, Roma cannot put a decent ball into the box from the corner.
    • 76 Riise gets hold of this shot though! His volley from 25 yards causes Julio Cesar to parry over the bar.
    • 74 The ball is played short to John Arne Riise who hits it high, wide and handsome.
    • 73 Totti knocks the ball inside to Vucinic who is too quick for Zanetti and the Inter skipper brings him down. This will give Roma a free kick 30 yars out...
    • 70 Menez has looked lively since coming on and has forced two corners in quick succession. It's just a shame the delivery wasn't better; neither ball into the box beat the first man.
    • 68 Roma sub: The ridiculously numbered 94 - Jeremy Menez - is on for Luca Toni.
    • 67 Oooo! Teriffic run from Eto'o who turns Riise on the touchline and then cuts in for goal. The Roma defender recovers to track him back so Eto'o beats him again with a Cruyff turn, moving the ball on to his left foot which he pulls back to shoot, but he cannot get the shot away thanks to a last ditch tackle from Juan.
    • 65 End to end football now. The more Roma push forward, the more room there is for Inter to counter attack...
    • 63 Totti swings in a cross which is nodded behind.
    • 61 Totti - who is dropping deep and finding a lot of the ball - thought he had been body checked by Diego Milito. The referee didn't agree so Toni went in search of his own vengeance by running in and knocking down Milito. He of course received a yellow card.
    • 55 Oooo! Inter break down field through Motta who finds Balotelli, it looks as though Roma have got enough bodies back to crowd out the youngster, but he works half a yard and fires a low shot at goal which forces a sharp save from Julio Sergio.
    • 53 Ooooo! Totti hits the free kick hard and low and it is too hot for Julio Cesar to handle. The ball flicks up off the goalkeeper's body to Juan who can only head just over the bar! That was Roma's best chance so far.
    • 52 Samuel bodychecks Toni - earning a booking - and this will give Roma a free kick, dead centre, 35 yards out.
    • 51 This is a very niggly match. Barely 30 seconds is going by without a stopping. Milito is down this time, though I'm not surprised, Riise stamped on his Achilles.
    • 49 Roma sub: Nicolas Burdiso - who was lucky not to be sent off in the first half - is replaced by Marco Motta.
    • 48 Simone Perrotta has injured his face by literally bouncing off Thiago Motta.
    • 47 Roma have made a change at half time. Francesco Totti has replaced David Pizarro.
    • 46 Inter get us back underway...
    • 20:50 The players are abck on the pitch. Well the Roma players are anyway...
    • 45 The referee brings an end to a bad tempered first half. Inter lead through Milito.
    • 44 Following all of that, Mexes was shown a yellow card.
    • 43 Materazzi has theatrically fallen to the ground following a challenge from Mexes. He has stayed down clutching his stomach and this has sparked a pushing match between both sets of players in the Roma penalty area. There is a lot of bad blood out on the pitch tonight...
    • 42 Burdisso piles into the back of Balotelli, a carbon copy of the challenge which he was booked for earlier in the match. The referee doesn't book the Roma full back and he is lucky to still be on the pitch. Mourinho is livid.
    • 41 A sub from a couple of minutes a go which I didn't tell you about: Samuel has replaced Cordoba.
    • 40 Hospital ball from David Pizarro in midfield plays the ball straight into Milito's path just inside the Roma half. However, he is still has a lot to do and is a long way from goal. He sprints at the defence - none of whom put a challenge in on him - and hits a fierce drive from the top corner of the box past Julio Sergio! Brilliant goal.
    • 40 Gooaalll! One nil Inter! Milito gets it!
    • 30 Ooo! Simone Perrotta breaks through the middle of the park and plays the ball out wide to Pizarro. First time he drives a cross straight back to Perrotta who sends a header in on goal which flys just past the post.
    • 26 Milito and Motta play a neat one two on the edge of the box with Motta finding his way to the goal line. But his pull back is awful and has to be retrieved by Balotelli, 35 yards out. The Inter youngster turns quickly and unleashes a fierce drive at goal which forces Julio Sergio to save down low.
    • 23 Ooo! The ball is slipped in to Taddei inside the box and he drills the ball toward the back post and the unmarked Luca Toni who is waiting to knock the ball into the empty net. But his moment of glory is ruined by a brilliant swooping block by Julio Cesar who ensures that the ball doesn't even arrive at Toni.
    • 22 Wonderful run from Eto'o which sees him sprint past three defenders finally comes to an end on the edge of the box as he is crowded out.
    • 20 Ooo! Balotelli peels off his marker, perfectly controls the ball, let's it bounce once and fires a volley destined for the bottom corner, but he sees his shot blocked by a full stretch Burdiso block.
    • 19 And again Vucinic cannot put a decent ball into the box.
    • 18 Cordoba climbs on his opponent and Roma again have a chance to get the big boys up from the back.
    • 17 Cristian Chivu is once again wearing a scrum cap. Strangely he doesn't have it fastened on the chin; surely that would get annoying?
    • 15 Milito has put the ball in the net, but he had strayed half a yard offside. Clinical finish and lovely through ball from Motta.
    • 14 Things are getting a little niggly out there. A passage of play littered with shirt pulls and off the ball petulance is brought to an end by Milito pulling Juan to the floor by the collar of his shirt.
    • 13 Burdisso slams into Balotelli and that earns the Roma full back a yellow card.
    • 12 Cambiasso makes a brilliant interception on Vucinic on half way and immediately his team go on the attack. The ball is played into Milito who lays off to Eto'o who shoots first time on an acute angle and forces a save from the keeper.
    • 10 Daniele De Rossi clips the ball into the box but outcomes Julio Cesar to claim the ball clearly.
    • 8 The big boys from the back come up for the free kick but Inter's defenders jump highest and nod it clear.
    • 7 Materazzi clips Toni on the edge of the box and this will give Roma a free kick in a decent position.
    • 5 Sneijder has made the signal to the bench and he has been repalced by everyone's favourite...Mario Balotelli!
    • 3 Cracking atmosphere inside the ground. Perhaps the Lazio fans who supported Inter at the weekend are still in the stadium?
    • 2 And straight from the start the golf cart is on the pitch. Wesley Sneijder has been clattered into and looks in a little trouble.
    • 1 We are underway!
    • 19:19 Roma are without Marco Cassetti who is serving a suspension after being sent off in the semi-final against Udinese; he is replaced by Nicolas Burdisso. John Arne Riise and Mirko Vucinic are both fit enough to start after picking up minor knocks at the weekend; however, there is no room Francesco Totti in the starting line.
    • 19:15 So Inter will have to do without Lucio who has not recovered from the injury he picked up against Lazio at the weekend; he is replaced by Cordoba.
    • 19:13 ROMA: Julio Sergio, N. Burdisso, P. Mexès, Juan, J. Riise, D. De Rossi, D. Pizarro, R. Taddei, S. Perrotta, M. Vucinic, F. Totti
    • 19:13 Team news is in: INTER: Júlio César, Maicon, I. Córdoba, M. Materazzi, C. Chivu, E. Cambiasso, T. Motta, S. Eto'o, W. Sneijder, J. Zanetti, D. Milito
    • 19:08 So then, can Inter take their first step toward a treble by winning the Coppa Italia this evening? Or will Roma ruin their dreams? Find out here where we will bring you LIVE updates of the Coppa Italia final.
