    • Lazio
    • Napoli
    • 90'+3 This amazing match finally reaches a conclusion - it's a draw that does neither team much good in the title race, but is just reward for both sides after a scintillating display.
    • 90' Chances at either end! First Marchetti pulls off a miracle save from Pandev's 20 yarder, then Floccari rattles the bar with a header!
    • 88' That's no less than Napoli deserve on the balance of play in this half - a magical goal to cap off a stunning match.
    • 87' NAPOLI FIND THE EQUALISER! The corner flies straight out to Campagnaro, who leaps into the air and nails an amazing round-house volley into the top right corner! Outrageous stuff! What a goal!
    • 86' Cannavaro shoots from outside the box - tipped over the bar by Marchetti! It's a corner!
    • 85' Appalling effort! It's a weak shot directed just to De Sanctis's right and taken easily. Lacked both power and precision.
    • 84' The ball breaks for Cana who charges up for Lulic and has only De Sanctis to beat....
    • 83' Candreva charges up the right, but is cut out.
    • 82' The game is opening up again now as both sides seem to be countering continuously.
    • 81' Controversy! Marchetti takes a high ball and steps back as he does so - but did he cross the line with the ball. Officials say no, but replay suggests he might have.
    • 80' Awful late slide on Cannavaro by Cana - that was pure recklessness and he's rightly booked.
    • 79' Zuniga comes off, Calaio on to replace him for Napoli - Zuniga has had a good match.
    • 78' Napoli win a corner - good chance for them here.
    • 77' Both players are up and running again.
    • 76' Clash between El Kaddouri and Dias - Dias looks hurt.
    • 74' Campagnaro saves a goal by covering back to clear! De Sanctis had miles off his line and Floccari guided the ball goalwards, but the Napoli defender managed to clear it.
    • 73' Former Premier League star Louis Saha is still on the bench for Lazio.
    • 72' Hernanes comes off, and Lorik Cana is coming on.
    • 71' Free kick Lazio - and we'll have some changes first.
    • 70' Yet another yellow card, this time it's Campagnaro who takes Lalic out - beautiful tackle, won the ball brilliantly, but it was from behind.
    • 69' Lazio try to hit on the break but Gameberini covers back to cover the danger.
    • 68' Cannavaro to take it... played short, and wasted as Zuniga is hustled off it by Konko.
    • 67' Magnificent run by Insigne, beating three men and opening up room to shoot - but he's tripped by Dias! Dias goes in the book.
    • 66' Lulic makes a run up the left but his effort to cross is cut out by Cannavaro.
    • 64' Lazio are just beginning to sit back a little - they're either tiring or have decided a more cautious approach might be best.
    • 63' The home fans are cheering with relief - Serie A's deadliest hitman almost had them there.
    • 62' Brilliant chance for Cavani, played in by Insigne - he turns and shoots, but Marchetti makes a superb diving save.
    • 60' Stunning long-range effort from Inler, just misses the top-right corner. Had it covered, Marchetti says with his shrug - he was probably right.
    • 59' Now Radu is in the book too for a brutal lunge on Pandev. It's all kicking off in Rome... No love lost between these sides.
    • 58' Hernanes goes in the book for a Bruce Lee-style roundhouse kick on Inler's ankles. Tasty.
    • 57' Lazio still looking better despite Napoli upping the work rate.
    • 56' Gonazalez has a long-range effort from 30 yards, but he drags it miles wide, almost closer to the corner flag.
    • 55' Napoli looking to change things, looks like Mesto is coming off.
    • 54' He's back on his feet - and Napoli are getting new tactics out to their players via Cannavaro.
    • 53' Radu gets the ball in the balls... Ouch. He's down for treatment.
    • 51' Perhaps in frustration at the disallowed goal Ledesma lashes out with his next tackle, on Hamsik, and goes in the book.
    • 50' 2-0 to Lazio - no! Disallowed! What seems at first a fine headed goal by Biava is ruled out for offside as the ball had come off Andre Dias rather than two Napoli defenders.
    • 49' The ball is pinged out to Candreva on the right, who wins a corner that is cleared at the near post by Cavani.
    • 48' Free kick to Lazio as Ledesma is tackled badly from behind.
    • 47' Lazio are still in charge as the match gets back under way, still trying to press forward for a second.
    • 46' We're back in action at the Stadio Olimpico.
    • 45'+4 The whistle goes, and that's been an absolutely mesmeric 45 minutes of football. Two fine teams throwing the kitchen sink at each other - only some good goalkeeping and the integrity of the woodwork has stopped it being a goalfest.
    • 45'+3 Magnificent effort by Hernanes - straight at the top corner- but it's an even better save by De Sanctis! Outstanding stuff all round.
    • 45'+2 Handball! Insigne controls the ball with his left arm outside the Napoli box. Free kick 25 yards out, Hernanes loves the look of it...
    • 45'+1 Three extra minutes, possibly more, to play - looks like Behrami is being stretchered off.
    • 45' Behrami has hurt himself - looked like the Napoli man has pulled his hamstring. Nasty.
    • 44' Nice work on the left by Floccari until he's bundled over by Cannavaro - no free kick, just a throw as the ball ricochets out.
    • 43' Lazio play a short corner, and Cannavaro charges out to chase down and clear.
    • 42' The free kick is deflected away from goal - still a corner, danger still on.
    • 41' Free kick to Lazio as Hernanes is utterly clobbed by Cannavaro. 35 yards out... Candreva will have another go.
    • 40' The visitors really coming into this match now - it's end to end stuff.
    • 39' Napoli claims the ball crossed the line, but replays show the goal-line official was correct not to award it.
    • 38' CAVANI! So close to a goal! Great run in from the left by Zuniga, whose stunning cross is straight on Cavani's head - and his perfect header rattles the crossbar, bounces down onto the turf, and is headed out for a corner.
    • 37' Napoli trying to keep the ball now and doing a better job, looking for an opening...
    • 36' Another half-chance for Lazio as Candreva's ball in from the right is scorched across goal, forcing Cannavaro to clear for a corner.
    • 34' Unbelievable effort from Floccari! Napoli leave him space 10 yards outside the box and he has a crack with a shot hit like a hydrogen bomb - and hits the post! The entire goal rattles for several seconds, while De Sanctis never even had a chance to move off his spot. What a goal that might have been!
    • 33' Napoli still not able to get any convincing openings, while Lazio look like opening the visitors up at any moment.
    • 32' Lazio have won a corner - or have they? Floccari was covering back from an offside position, not involved in play - but it was presence that convinced Cannavaro to clear off the pitch, and Napoli get the benefit of the decision.
    • 31' In all the excitement earlier there was no time even to mention that Marui has come off injured, and Lulic has replaced him. Mauri took himself out be stepping on the ball. Embarrassing...
    • 30' Candreva tries a ball in from the right to try and find Hernanes, but it's too close to De Sanctis.
    • 29' That was without doubt a goal-saving header by Dias - Cavani was right behind him and would have nodded home from all of two yards.
    • 28' Lovely run by Zuniga - and great chance for Napoli! Zuniga's shot stings Marchetti who can't hang on - Radu follows up to chip the ball across goal to Cavani, but Dias is there covering back to head over to safety....
    • 27' Lazio got away with that one a bit - Napoli are outraged though. Tempers fraying already...
    • 26' Yellow card for Mesto for a dive - but he's very harshly done by! Replays clearly show Gonzalaez did indeed nudge him with his leg to send him to the floor.
    • 25' Candreva has inspired everyone to shoot from lunatic range - Ledesma tries one there from a good 40 yards.
    • 24' It's lofted in nicely to the six-yard box, but Marchetti stays strong in the Lazio goal to catch the ball well.
    • 23' Dangerous free kick won by Campagnaro as he goes down under a challenge - Mesto will take, 30 yards out on the right...
    • 22' Napoli getting frustrated already, Floccari getting shoved to the deck by Inler.
    • 21' Hamsik tries a curler from 25 yards, but it's both weak and well wide.
    • 20' Lazio are all over this match at the moment, looking absolutely superb.
    • 18' Another great chance for Candreva, who now makes a lovely run up the right, cuts inside and hits a wonderful shot to the far corner - turned around the post by De Sanctis!
    • 17' Magnificent free kick effort! It's absolutely hammered by Candreva, and De Sanctis can't hang on to it... but he scrabbles to recover before anyone can get to it!
    • 16' Mauri wins a free kick as he's shoved to the deck by Inler. 34 yards out, dead in front.
    • 15' There's replay after replay of Floccari's goal - that was a proper training ground beauty.
    • 14' Nice run by Hamsik for Napoli, who has a dig from at least 25 yards. Marchetti fails to hold it, but Mauri has covered back to collect.
    • 13' Another half chance for Lazio as Hernanes gets his head to a free kick, but it's guided wide.
    • 12' Fabulous team move - Napoli didn't know what hit them.
    • 11' GOAL TO LAZIO! It's Floccari! A magnificent counter attack sees the home side churn up the right from where Konko puts in a beautiful ball to Floccari. He controls on his chest, then lashes a left foot beauty past De Sanctis.
    • 11' Napoli come forwardd and win a throw in the left corner - Zuniga's throw miscontrolled by Hamsik and a break is on.
    • 10' Mauri tries a desperate effort from outside the box, but it's a wild swing at the ball and nowhere close to goal.
    • 8' Big penalty shout for Lazio! Candreva makes a storming run into the box but is hustled off the ball by Gamerini and Zuniga together. He goes down and the home fans scream for a spot kick - but the ref orders him to his feet.
    • 8' Gonzalez tries to burst through the middle from the throw, but Campagnaro steps up to clear for Napoli.
    • 7' Floccari puts in good work on the left for Lazio and wins a throw in a dangerous spot.
    • 6' Flipped in nicely Candreva from the corner and Stefan Radu is there at the near post - he gets to it well but can't guide it on target. The defender looks annoyed, but it was a tough chance.
    • 6' This is a Lazio side without a win in three games and that has just lost top scorer Miroslav Klose (10 goals) to injury, but they don't look it as their pressing earns a corner.
    • 4' Lazio making all the running in these early stages, looking very lively.
    • 3' First half-chance of the match falls to Lazio, and it's Hernanes who has a dig from just outside the box. The ball curves wide of the left upright.
    • 2' The ground staff have done a superb job getting the pitch ready: considering this ground hosted an international rugby match last week, but you'd never know it. It looks perfect.
    • 1' We're under way at the Stadio Olimpico.
    • 19:44 We're about to kick off, Lazio in their usual sky blue and Napoli in their dark blue - almost black actually - third strip.
    • 19:40 TEAMS: Lazio - Marchetti; Konko, Biava, Dias, Radu; Ledesma; Candreva, Gonzalez, Mauri, Hernanes; Floccari. All. Petkovic. //// Napoli - De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Gamberini; Mesto, Behrami, Inler, Zuniga; Hamsik; Pandev, Cavani. All. Mazzarri.
    • 19:35 It's a massive tussle tonight: second place Napoli visiting third-placed Lazio, with Napoli having a chance to close up to within three points of table-topping Juventus - and Lazio in with a shout of getting within three of Napoli.

  1. A thwarting draw, unbridgeable gap, acrimonious­ farewell with Scodeto and continuation of 13-year-old­ expectation. Sadly Lazio's momentum discontinued­ early and we fans' hopes faded away. Now our sole­ hope for title is Coppa Italia.

    From Tooraj, on Sun 10 Feb 6:52
  2. Only Klose !

    From New, on Sun 10 Feb 4:26
  3. ref doing everything he can to get the three points for­ napoli

    From Morty, on Sat 9 Feb 21:39
  4. I am a Juventus fan from Naples living in England and­ am I pleased my home city is 2nd behind my favourite­ team. FORZA JUVENTUS E FORZA NAPOLI !

    From Antonio, on Sat 9 Feb 21:39
  5. Lazio, squadra di mer@da per supercafoni.

    From John, on Sat 9 Feb 20:43
  6. Forza Lazio!!! final result 4:2. Today is the day­ when Lazio will show how much they worth.

    From Dejan, on Sat 9 Feb 19:28
  7. Nopoli is a highly perilous guest and motivated­ opponent, but Lazio is the very overwhelming host who­ outclassed AC Milan, Inter, Roma and Juventus.

    From Tooraj, on Sat 9 Feb 18:59
  8. A pan-blue meeting, early final for title fighters and­ occasion for survival in title race. Definitely victory­ will be with Sky Blues, but which side is to be­ derailed?

    From Tooraj, on Sat 9 Feb 15:47
  9. This night Lazio, by an ardent, targeted play, must get­ through to Napoli that Stadio Olimpico is not an easy­ pass but a slaughterhouse for claimants.

    From Tooraj, on Sat 9 Feb 15:42
  10. Come on Lazio we fans' patience is spilling over,­ it is the time you show your power and merit.

    From Amir, on Sat 9 Feb 15:22
  11. Lazio's two successive losses deepened the gap­ between the top dwellers, now Napoli strive to keep­ clear from Lazio, nearing 1st place and Juventus is­ inaccessible all the more. However title race isn't­ yet finished and Sky Blues are condemned to fight until­ last second. Lazio must remain pride of the Eternal­ City.
