    Time:90'
    • AS Roma
    • Lecce
    • 90+3' Full-time 2-0 to Roma.
    • 90+3' CHANCE! Mirko Vucinic runs through on goal, but guides his shot wide with only Antonio Rosati to beat.
    • 90+2 CHANCE! Mirko Vucinic has a shot blocked.
    • 90' There will be three minutes of time added on.
    • 90' Roma just keeping the ball in the final few minutes.
    • 87' Looking at the replay it's hard to work out who is to blame for the row between Totti and Rubén Olivera. Totti runs in his direction after Mirko Vucinic scored - possibly in a bid to taunt him - but it was Olivera who raised his hand and struck the Roma captain.
    • 85' Both teams just seeing out the final five minutes here.
    • 83' Roma make a change - Matteo Brighi makes way for Jérémy Menez.
    • 82' Mirko Vucinic collides with Antonio Rosati as they both attack the ball.
    • 77' Francesco Totti is incensed and he tries to attack Rubén Olivera as they make their way to the changing rooms. Madness.
    • 76' Totti and Rubén Olivera get involved in a scrap off the ball and both are shown the red card.
    • 76' GGGOOOAALLLL!!! 2-0 to Roma. Finally Mirko Vucinic finds the back of the net. Francesco Totti played Vucinic through on goal and the Montenegrin striker drove a low shot with his left foot past Antonio Rosati.
    • 75' CHANCE! Miss by Mirko Vucinic? Yep, you guessed it. Marco Borriello found Vucinic at the back post with a great ball from the right, but the number nine sent his volley soaring over the bar.
    • 73' CHANCE! Deep cross from Roma's Cicinho sails over a stranded Antonio Rosati and onto the head of Mirko Vucinic, but striker can only head wide.
    • 71' Lecce are not giving up on this game - they're applying a bit of pressure now.
    • 69' Roma's Cicinho is shown the yellow card.
    • 65' Substitution for Lecce. Javier Chevanton comes on for Ignacio Piatti.
    • 65' CHANCE! Marco Borriello clips the top of the bar with a header after meeting a fantastic cross from Francesco Totti.
    • 64' Roma full of impetus after the goal.
    • 62' GGGOOOAAALLL!!! Cross from John Arne Riise out wide on the left is brilliantly headed into the right hand top corner of the net by Nicolas Burdisso.
    • 60' CHANCE! A fierce left foot shot from Marco Borriello is tipped over brilliantly by Antonio Rosati. Great save.
    • 59' Roma substitution, Fabio Simplicio replaces Simone Perrotta.
    • 57' Roma's Juan goes in the book for a late challenge on Daniele Corvia
    • 55' Lecce look a lot more organised and solid in the second half. They're making sure the ball stays away from Mirko Vucinic, who terrorised them in the first period.
    • 53' CHANCE! Lecce's Rubén Olivera slips a through ball to David Di Michele and the former West Ham striker miscues a shot wide of the target. Should have done better.
    • 53' Both teams are giving the ball away too easily.
    • 51' Scrappy start to the second half.
    • 48' CHANCE! Rasping drive from Lecce's Rubén Olivera is beaten out by Julio Sergio.
    • 48' Just noticed Roma have made a change - Cicinho has replaced Marco Cassetti at right back.
    • 47' Early corner for Roma... Collected comfortably by Antonio Rosati.
    • 45' Roma kick-off the second half.
    • 45+2' Half-time 0-0. Fantastic first half - very entertaining. Lots of chances, with Roma's Mirko Vucinic the star of the opening 45 minutes.
    • 44' Nicolás Burdisso heads wide after rising to meet a free kick from Francesco Totti.
    • 41' CHANCE! Lecce almost steal the lead before the end of the half. David Di Michele intercepted a back pass from Juan, rounded Julio Sergio and pulled the ball back for Daniele Corvia. With just Nicolás Burdisso to beat on the line the striker still managed to drive a shot at the defender's knees. Should have scored.
    • 41' CHANCE! Another effort from Mirko Vucinic. He shoots from long range with real venom and Antonio Rosati beats it out.
    • 40' Lecce pushing hard at the end of the half.
    • 38' Roma in control and should be front. The woodwork and Antonio Rosati have denied them a deserved lead.
    • 36' CHANCE! How is this game 0-0? Yet again Mirko Vucinic is at the heart of the action. He cut in from the left and tried to curl the ball around Antonio Rosati, but the Lecce goalkeeper stuck out a leg and managed to divert the ball away from danger.
    • 33' CHANCE! Wonderful interchange between Mirko Vucinic and Marco Borriello, results in the former hammering a volley against the Lecce bar.
    • 33' Totti's effort crashes against the wall.
    • 33' Free kick to Roma on the edge of the Lecce box following a foul on Simone Perrotta.
    • 31' Francesco Totti and Mirko Vucinic are finding more and more space.
    • 30' Roma are now on top with 52 per cent of possession.
    • 28' CHANCE! How did that stay out? Mirko Vucinic picks out Francesco Totti who rides a tackle and fires a left foot shot at goal, which is beaten out by Antonio Rosati. The ball falls for Marco Borriello, who sends a volley crashing against the underside of the bar. The linesman raises his flag - wrongly - against Borriello and Lecce have a free kick.
    • 24' CHANCE! Roma's Mirko Vucinic cuts in from the left and drives a low shot into the body of Antonio Rosati.
    • 23' Roma need to get the ball out wide to Mirko Vucinic - he looks dangerous tonight.
    • 23' CHANCE! Marco Cassetti whips the ball in from the right to Marco Borriello attacking the near post and the striker heads the ball over.
    • 21' Lecce has shaded the action so far. The visitors have had 56 per cent of the possession and look more intent on pressing the issue.
    • 19' After that flurry of action the game has begun to settle down.
    • 17' An injury to Stefano Ferrario forces Lecce to make a sub and bring on Alberto Giuliatto.
    • 16' CHANCE! Should have been a goal. Free kick whipped in from Totti from the left channel which finds Marco Borriello arriving unmarked in the box. The striker somehow manages to miss the target. Criminal miss.
    • 14' CHANCE! Great save from Julio Sergio. Lecce send the ball into the box from the left, Daniele Corvia attacks it but misses it, but in his effort to block the cross Juan direct it at goal. The ball was destined for the net, until Sergio got down low to his right and turned the ball around the post.
    • 11' CHANCE! What an effort. Daniele Corvia hits a cracking snap volley from 25 yards that leaves Julio Sergio rooted to the spot, but it crashes the bar and Roma survive.
    • 9' Totti lay crumpled on the floor after a stong challenge from Lecce's Corvia.
    • 6' Vucinic looks very lively. He just forced a save from Rosati with his legs at the near post.
    • 5' Opening five minutes - fairly even. Lecce are certainly not sitting back - they're here to win this game.
    • 3' Lecce: Rosati, Gustavo, Ferrario, Mesbah, Vives, Giacomazzi, Piatti, Munari, Corvia, Olivera, Di Michele. Subs: Chevanton, Giuliatto, Ofere, Grossmüller, Rispoli, Bertolacci, Benassi.
    • 2' Here's Roma's team: Sergio, Juan, Burdisso, Riise, Cassetti, Brighi, De Rossi, Vucinic, Perrotta, Borriello. Subs: Lobont, Castellini, Simplicio, Cicinho, Okaka Chuka, Menez, Guillermo Burdisso.
