    • - Panagiotis Tachtsidis was actually sent-off late on for Roma as tempers boiled over. He may even have been red carded after the final whistle. See you next time!
    • - Lazio shaded this game and just about deserve their victiory here.
    • 90+4' That's it! Lazio win the Coppa Italia and are back in Europe next season. Jubilant scenes at the final whisle.
    • 90+3' The Lazio substitutes are desperate for the final whistle!
    • 90+2' Michael Ciani has come on for Lazio as Mauri comes so close to finishing it. His close-range shot is beaten away by Lobont!
    • 90+1' Totti is booked for Roma. It was something he said.
    • 90' There will be four added minutes at the end of this Coppa Italia final.
    • 89' Are Lazio about to secure the final Europa League place?
    • 88' Roma do not look like scoring here, but stranger things have happened...
    • 86' Burdisso picks up a yellow card. I didn't quite see what for. Possibly descent?
    • 85' Lobont punches awat a free-kick before Lazio win a throw. Not long for Lazio to hold on now!
    • 83' Alvaro Gonzalez comes on to replace Hernanes in another Lazio substitution. Hernanes had a quiet game by his standards.
    • 82' Marchetti fists away a free-kick from Lamela and Lazio race down the other end to win a corner.
    • 81' Another substitution as Marquinho is replaced by Dodo.
    • 80' Good run down the right from Candreva, one of the better players on show today, but his cross is well overhit.
    • 78' Totti's free-kick into the box is easily caught by Marchetti who has rarely been troubled today.
    • 77' It's taken Roma 77 minutes to win their first corner but Totti's effort is headed away at the near post.
    • 75' The striker Pablo Osvaldo is on for left-back Balzaretti.
    • 74' Lulic is booked for pulling back on Marquinhos as Roma prepare their first substitution.
    • 73' Roma will now have to go for this. No more sitting back...
    • 72' The ball smashes agaisnt the underside of the Lazio cross bar after Totti's chipped free-kick! Destro was having his shirt pulled their too, but Lazio get lucky as the ball hits the bar and bounces on the line!
    • 71' GOAL! ROMA 0-1 LAZIO. Lulic reacts at the far post to prod Lazio is front! Candreva's cross is pushed out by Lobont but Lulic is on hand to give Lazio the lead!
    • 70' Lazio win a free-kick after a challenge by Totti on Hernanes.
    • 68' Marquinho does well to hold off Biava before getting a shot away that Marchetti saves at his near post.
    • 67' So close as Mauri strikes a beautiful cross across the face of goal, but there is no one to get the touch.
    • 66' Hernanes wrong foots Totti but can't get beyond Bradley.
    • 65' Lamela is penalised for handball in the Lazio half.
    • 64' Just the one substitution so far, with Mauri replacing the injuured Ledesma.
    • 62' Totti blast a shock free-kick well over the bar. That's one he'll want to forget. He's not had his shooting boots on so far.
    • 61' The whistle blows for a foul on Lamela as Roma continue to push forward.
    • 60' Roma have edged the second-half so far. It's been more positive from them.
    • 59' Radu hacks the ball forward but out of play.
    • 58' Totti fires a shot from distance over the bar. Better than his woeful first-half effort at least. Totti has four goals in Coppa Italia finals. Hernan Crespo has the record with five.
    • 57' Marquinhos' ruin is brought to an end, but unfairly says the referee. Yet another free-kick in a game punctuated by niggly fouls.
    • 56' Roma call for a penalty after Marquinho goes to ground in the area but the referee waves play on.
    • 55' Hernanes can't wriggle away from Marquinos and Roma win it back.
    • 54' Is Pablo Osvaldo a player who could come on and light things up for Roma? Destra's not been much cop so far.
    • 53' Ledesma is currently being taken off on a stretcher. He looks in some distress and is being replaced by Stefanio Mauri.
    • 50' A shot from Marquinho this time is held by Marchetti. Roma are showing a bit more going forward now.
    • 49' Good run forward by Marquinhos but he drags his shot tamely wide.
    • 48' Stefano Mauri is warming up on the sidelines for Lazio. Perhaps a change of personnel is what this match needs.
    • 47' So far this has been a match between two sides afraid to lose. Roma have been poarticularly guilty of this.
    • 46' We are back underway again at the Olimpico. Things can only get better...
    • 45' The half-time whistle blows at the end of a poor first period.
    • 44' Fine chance at the back post as Destro rises to head wide Marquinhos' dangerous right wing cross. That is Roma's best chance of the game.
    • 43' Destro overruns the ball in what could have been a promising break for Roma.
    • 42' Candreva digs out a cross that is headed out for a corner by Burdisso.
    • 41' De Rossi wins a free-kick in his own half. It's been very stop-start and there have been plenty of fouls.
    • 40' Five minutes until the break. Lazio have just shaded this so far.
    • 38' There has been little flow to the game. Lazio have come the closest through Lulic and Klose.
    • 37' Klose leaves a foot in on Burdisso's left ankle and becomes the fifth player booked after just 37 minutes.
    • 36' Candreva goes down far too easily in the box and Roma get the goal kick. Saying that, Candreva's shirt was being tugged a little.
    • 34' A fine close-range save from Lobont denies Klose who rises well at the far post to get his head on a left-wing cross! That is the closest we have come to a goal.
    • 33' Robust challenge from Totti who gives away a free-kick and Lazio send some players up from the back for this one.
    • 31' Lamela is caught by Hernanes who got away with a challenge on Totti earlier but does not get away with this one. Yellow card.
    • 29' Destro has been starved of the ball so far for Roma, for whom Bradley has come the closest to scoring so far.
    • 28' Totti is fouled by Hernanes in the centre of the field. Free kick Roma.
    • 27' Lulic plays a dangerous ball into the area that is hacked away.
    • 26' Lulic is muscled off the ball by Marquinhos.
    • 25' Candreva is bought by Marquinho who is booked. He wasn't booked for the challenge, but for whacking the ball away after the whistle had blown.
    • 23' Totti blazes a shot miles over the bar. That was wasteful from Roma's record scorer.
    • 22' A poor ball from Radu gifts Roma a goal kick. It's been cagey stuff so far.
    • 20' Ledesma tries a speculative shot from range that bounces wide of Labont's goal.
    • 19' This has been a breakthrough season for Onazi who has featured regularly for the biancocelesti since coming back from the Africa Cup of Nations.
    • 18' De Rossi is caught by Onazi in his own half and Roma win the free-kick.
    • 17' Lamela gets a low shot away that Marchetti again deals comfortably with.
    • 16' Lazio enjoying more of the possession here, although we have not seen much of Hernanes yet.
    • 15' A long punt up field for Balzaretti has too much on it and Lazio get the throw.
    • 14' Candreva's corner fails to get past the first man...
    • 13' Candreva's cross is headed out by Niclas Burdisso for a corner.
    • 12' There were worries that because of the feared violence, many would stay away from this fixture, but there are plenty in the Olimpico today.
    • 10' Federico Balzaretti is booked for a late challenge on Antonio Candreva.
    • 9' A fine run from Bradley takes the American to the edge of the six-yard box where he fires wide across the face off goal! Decent chance that.
    • 8' Francesco Totti curls in a low shot that Federico Marchetti deals with comfortably enough.
    • 7' Leandro Castan is brought down on the left for a free-kick to Roma just inside their own half.
    • 6' Roma enjoying a bit of possession in their own half until Michael Bradley gives it away with a wayward pass.
    • 4' Cristian Ledesma drifts in a free-kick but Roma clear.
    • 3' Bogdan Lobont makes a fine low save from Senad Lulic and Miroslav Klose can only put the rebound into the side-netting!
    • 2' There are pre-match reports that firearms were found outside the ground unfortunately.
    • 1' We are underway at a packed Stadio Olimpico. What a game in store! There are
    • 16:57 Always an explosive clash on and off the field, the ultras agreed a pre-match truce and to approach the Stadio Olimpico from different sides, while not bringing weapons or knives. Sad to hear reports yesterday, then, that some of the Lazio squad had received threatening phone calls from Roma ultras.
    • 16:55 Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic: "I am very proud to be leading these players who have given it their all. They have all sacrificed a lot and achieved great results in Italy and in Europe. They deserve to win tomorrow. There is a triple objective here: to qualify for Europe, a heated derby and then there is a cup that is worth a lot. The important thing is not to think about all this but to give it our all. With positivity we can achieve our goal."
    • 16:50 Roma caretaker boss Aurelio Andreazzoli: "This is different to the other derbies, as it is valid for silverware, for Europa League qualification and for local pride. Which is more important? It doesn’t matter, this is all or nothing."
    • 16:47 My name is Stewart Coggin. Feel free to tweet me your thoughts and predictions on what is set to be an epic tussle between these two particularly noisy neighbours. @stewartcoggin
    • 16:45 Perhaps an indication of how far these two clubs have fallen is that this match represents their only chance of reaching the Europa League next season. Roma can become the first club in Italian history to win the Coppa Italia 10 times. Should they beat their bitter rivals, they will have a permanent silver star placed on their jerseys.
    • 16:40 Both sides are at virtually full-strength for what is one of the most significant Rome derbies in history. Maarten Stekelenburg is Roma’s only absentee due to injury, with the Romanian Bogdan Lobont starting in goal. Mattia Destro heads the Roma attack, with Francesco Totti, Erik Lamela and Marquinhos providing support. Lazio, who are without the injured Louis Saha, field Miroslav Klose as their lone frontman, with Hernanes and Antonio Candreva charged with providing the creativity behind him.
    • 16:35 ROMA: Lobont; Marquinhos, Burdisso, Castan, Balzaretti; Bradley, De Rossi;Lamela, Totti, Marquinho; Destro. Subs: Goicoechea, Svedkauskas, Romagnoli, Piris, Taddei, Dodò,Florenzi, Perrotta, Tachtsidis, Pjanic, Osvaldo, Lopez. /// LAZIO: Marchetti; Konko, Biava, Cana, Radu; Ledesma; Candreva, Hernanes,Onazi, Lulic; Klose.
