    • Palermo
    • Lazio
    • That is all for tonight. Hope you enjoyed it and see you next time.
    • 90+3' And there goes the full-time whistle. What an enthralling game. Palermo did brilliantly to come from behind and take the lead but they ultimately could not hold on as Lazio soon found an equaliser. The away side miss out on a chance to go joint-top of the league however.
    • 90+3' Dybala picks out the unmarked Miccoli in the box but he sends his volley over the bar. That loooked like the winner.
    • 90+2' Lazio cannot find a way past the Palermo defence.
    • 90+1' Three minutes of injury time to be played. Plenty of time for a winner.
    • 90' Lazio have to be careful that Palermo do not hit them on the break as they are leaving themselves pretty exposed.
    • 89' Mauri tries to get a cross in from the right but is unable to beat his man.
    • 88' Hernanes shoots from distance but blazes it over. What a waste.
    • 87' Lazio are piling on the pressure. First Floccari and then Gonzalez pour into the box only to be tackled at the last moment.
    • 86' What a game! This could go either way now. Both sides are looking for the winner.
    • 85' Hernanes tucks the penalty away into the bottom corner. Ujkani guessed the right way but could not get down in time.
    • 84' Lazio win the penalty. Floccari is brought down in the box by Munoz.
    • 83' Miccoli's corner goes straight to Marchetti. Wasteful.
    • 83' Malele pours down the right but Ciani does well to tackle him, however, the defender's back pass to the keeper is poor and goes off for a corner.
    • 82' Cavanda concedes a foul on Malele. Things are not going how Lazio would have wanted them at all.
    • 81' Mauri hangs a free-kick into the box but Palermo manage to get it clear.
    • 80' Lazio bring on Kozak for Ledesma.
    • 80' Von Bergen goes into the box for a foul on Hernanes.
    • 79' Palermo make another change as Malele comes on for Ilicic.
    • 78' Mauri picks out Gonzalez on the edge of the box but the Lazio man's touch lets him down.
    • 77' Lazio are beginning to get pretty frustrated out there. Some of their passing has been a little off tonight.
    • 76' Ledesma takes aim from distance but sends it well over the bar.
    • 75' What a games this is turning out to be. It is end to end stuff at the minute.
    • 73' Ledesma sends a free-kick in from the right. Floccari rises highest to get on the end of it but he can only send his header over the bar.
    • 72' What a turnaround from the home side. And you have to say it is deserved.
    • 71' Candreva comes on for Cana for Lazio.
    • 70' Unbelievable stuff as Dybala puts his side into the lead after Miccoli plays a lovely first-time ball into his path before the striker slots past Marchetti.
    • 69' A lovely ball across the face of goal from Dossena and Arevalo arrives at the far post unmarked to tap home.
    • 68' Lazio make a change as Gonzalez comes on for Lulic.
    • 67' Was that the chance for Palermo? Miccoli should have at least hit the target.
    • 66' A real chance for Miccoli after he receives the ball in the box from the left but he can only drag his first-time effort wide.
    • 65' Palermo make another change. Morganella goes offf and Anselmo comes on.
    • 64' Mauri picks up the ball ont the right and sends the cross in from the right but he fails to pick out Floccari and it goes out for the goal kick.
    • 63' Mauri plays a great ball into Floccari who finds the corner with a fine striker, however, the goal is disallowed as the striker was offside.
    • 61' Despite Palermo seeing plenty of the ball, Lazio's defence has been resolute all night.
    • 60' Dybala sends a ball into the box from the right but it sails out for the goal kick.
    • 59' Remember, Palermo are four points from safety so they really need to get something out of this game.
    • 58' Lazio are really finding it hard to get out of their own half at the moment. All credit must go to the home side.
    • 57' Lulic goes into the book after a late challenge on Dybala.
    • 56' Ciani is down in pain at the moment after colliding with Dybala.
    • 55' The home crowd are really getting behind their team now. They sense they are close to finding an equaliser.

    • 53' Morganella whips a ball into the box from the right but Marchetti is able to deal with it comfortably.
    • 52' This is a very positve start from Palermo. Lazio are being restricted to playing on the break at the moment.

    • 50' Miccoli's corner, however, is easily dealt with by the Lazio defence.
    • 49' Palermo break down the other end through Dybala who does well to win the corner.
    • 48' Floccari gets on the end of a long ball forward but Garcia is there to clear the danger.
    • 47' So can the home side find that elusive equaliser? They certainly looked like they were not too far away in the first half.
    • 46' Palermo get the second half underway...
    • Palermo make a half-time change as Munoz comes on for Aronica.
    • 45+1' And there goes the half-time whistle. Lazio have the lead but Palermo are unlucky not to be level, having put plenty of pressure on their opponents.
    • 45' Miccoli goes into the book for a handball.
    • 45' The ball comes out to Hernanes who brings a great save out of Ujkani, palming the ball away to safety.
    • 45' Mauri sends the free-kick straight into the wall.
    • 45' Mauri wins a free-kick for Lazio right on the edge of the box after a foul from Aronica. This could be dangerous for Palermo.

    • 43' Cavanda receives a yellow card for a late tackle on Garcia. Palermo win a free-kick in a promising position.

    • 39' Palermo are playing some great stuff at the moment and really putting the Lazio defence under siege. They just need to work on their final ball and a goal will surely come their way.
    • 38' The ball falls to Arevalo on the edge of the box but he blazes his effort well over the bar.
    • 37' Ilicic slots in Dybala into the box but Ciani does well to avert the danger.
    • 36' Ledesma sends the resulting free-kick into the Palermo box but he fails to get it past the first man. Wasteful.
    • 35' Floccari does very well to win a free-kick off Dossena for his team in a dangerous position.
    • 34' Palermo are seeing a lot of the ball at the moment but it is still Lazio who look more of a threat when they do get the ball in the final third.
    • 33' Miccoli sends the corner in from the left but it goes straight to Marchetti. Palermo are winning plenty of corners which shows the pressure they are putting on Lazio.

    • 32' Hernanes has another go from distance but his effort is poor and canons straight off Aronica.

    • 27' Miccoli comes forward down the left for Palermo only for Biava to slide in with a great challenge to put an end to the attack.
    • 26' Floccari has been immense so far. Some of his link-up play has been very good.

    • 23' Hernanes takes a free-kick for Lazio from distance but Ujkani makes a comfortable save.
    • 23' Palermo have really upped their game over the last few minutes. They could easily be level.

    • 19' Ledesma sends the free-kick into the box but Ujkani does well to punch the danger clear.
    • 18' Garcia goes into the book for a sloppy challenge on Mauri.
    • 17' Remeber, as it stands, Lazio are joint-top with Juventus, who play later this evening.
    • 16' It is all Lazio at the minute as they are keeping Palermo stuck in their own half.
    • 15' Lulic sends a long ball over the top but he gets it all wrong and it sails out for the goal kick.
    • 15' Mauri is back up and play resumes.
    • 14' Mauri is down injured at the moment which has stopped play for the minute.
    • 13' Floccari receives the ball on the edge of the box and looks as though he is about to shoot but the ref blows for a foul. It looks like the frontman was leaning into his marker.
    • 12' Palermo playing the ball around nicely infront of Lazio's penalty boxa the moment, waiting for some space to open up.
    • 11' A great start to the game for Lazio then. How will Palermo now respond?
    • 10' Ledesma sends a fine ball forward and Floccari gets on the end of it to send a looping header over Ujkani.
    • 10' Cavanda looks for the run of Floccari but he overthits it this time too. The Lazio frontman is clearly their main outlet at the moment.
    • 9' Palermo are giving the ball away very cheaply to their opponents at the moment. They are making it very easy for them.
    • 8' Mauri looks for the run of Floccari with a long ball over the top but he just overhits it.
    • 7' Palermo too are looking to get the ball forward early at every opportunity which is making for a fast-paced game at the moment.
    • 6' Dossena gets forward down the left but Cavanda does very well to bring an end to Palermo's attack.
    • 5' Mauri gives the ball away with a wasteful pass but Palermo are unable to take advantage and Dybala soon loses possession.
    • 4' So Lazio looking pretty dangerous already. They are playing very direct.
    • 4' Mauri picks out Floccari with a wonderful ball into the box but the striker is just unable to bring the ball under control and Palermo get it clear.
    • 3' Miccoli tries to whip a ball into the box from the left-hand side but his effort is deflected clear.
    • 2' Hernanes receives the ball on the edge of the area and shoots first time, bringing out a decent save from Ujkani.
    • 1' Lazio get the first half underway...
    • 16:55 Palermo come into this game on a bad run, having lost their last three games, while they have failed to win in their last seven. In contrast, Lazio have won their last four matches and are unbeaten in 14 games.
    • 16:50 Vladimir Petkovic, Lazio manager: "Palermo are not an easy opponent to beat, they're at home and they will want to pick up some points. We will need to give more than 100 per cent."
    • 16:45 Today's game is a big one for both sides. 19th-placed Palermo will want to reduce the deficit of four points that separates them from safety, while third-placed Lazio have a chance to join Juventus at the top of the league if they win. Juve, however, take on Udinese later tonight so it could prove to be only temporary.
    • 16:40 Palermo make three changes from the side that lost to Napoli last week with Kurtic, Ilicic, Dybala and Miccoli coming in for Barreto, Anselmo, Budan and Brienza. Lazio, meanwhile, make three changes from the side that beat Atalanta last week, with Cavanda, Cana and Floccari coming in for Konko, Candreva and Klose.
