    Time:90'
    • Chievo
    • Lazio
    • 90+5 That's it, Lazio go second after that win, above Chievo.
    • 90+4 Chievo lack the guile or technique to break Lazio down, as Bresciano intercepts and finds Ledesma, who rolls the ball wide right into the corner and eventually puts it out for a throw by the flag.
    • 90+3 Constant with a rotten tackle from behind, two feet on Ledesma.
    • 90+2 I think Muslera's been booked for wasting time.
    • 90+1 Diagonal ball aimed at Thereau by Granoche but too long.
    • 90' A whopping FIVE minutes of time added on.
    • 89' Free-kick to the hosts as Lazio now have everyone behind the ball. Long into the box but Lazio clear.
    • 88' Frey is playing as an attacking midfielder now as Matuzalem bicycle-kicks his ball into the box tp safety.
    • 87' LAZIO SUB: Stendardo on for Hernanes as Lazio park the bus.
    • 86' Great chance for Lazio but Hernanes, free in the box, mis-kicks the ball and Chievo clear. Mauri has his head in his hands.
    • 85' Did I say this game was a touch scrappy? It's degenerated again as Lazio now decide to turn it into a slog fest.
    • 83' Constant picks the ball up in the middle and hammers a low bobbling drive a yard or two wide in the end with Muslera covering.
    • 82' CHIEVO SUB: Thereau on for Bentivoglio.
    • 80' It's all huff and puff from Chievo as Constant plays a low cross in that is easily cleared.
    • 79' LAZIO SUB: Zarate also comes off for Ledesma as Lazio shut up shop.
    • 79' LAZIO SUB: Australia midfielder Marc Bresciano comes on for the stricken Brocchi.
    • 78' Well done the ref, he knows Constant couldn't avoid contact there as he was in the right, taking a shot that Brocchi was flying in to block. He books Radu and Bogliacano for fussing.
    • 77' It's all kicking off a bit after Constant has a shot that Brocchi blocks, with the Frenchman catching the Italian as he followed through. Looked accidental to me but Lazio are causing a fuss with Brocchi hurt.
    • 76' The break is on for Lazio as Brocchi finds Hernanes, who races down the right but gives it away.
    • 75' A succession of corners to Chievo, who are piling it on now...
    • 74' Constant will live after that. No cards, Chievo have a free-kick, Lazio clear.
    • 73' Constant goes down heavily in a challenge with Brocchi but play on says the ref as Moscardelli races towards goal, brought down by Matuzalem.
    • 72' Dangerous ball from Constant on the left but Biava heads clear. Expect a bombardment now.
    • 70' Lazio come again but Mauri's ball this time is poor.
    • 69' Lazio score! Straight down the other end and Zarate atones for his miss earlier with a low finish past Sorrentino into the bottom left. A great long ball from Mauri on halfway and a lovely first touch to set up a low finish across the keeper.
    • 68' The corner is headed away by Andreolli for another one which Cesar gets clear. Chievo break as Constant gets in down the left but his low ball aimed for Moscardelli is poor, straight at the keeper.
    • 67' Hernanes over the free-kick just outside the box on the right... He shoots, somewhat ridiculously, but it is only just over the bar. Sorrentino got a touch it seems, corner.
    • 66' Zarate rolls around on the floor after a foul from Constant, who was going for the ball but was a tiny bit rough. Just a bit.
    • 64' Poor poor ball in from Rigoni. Lazio clear but back with Chievo.
    • 63' Moscardelli cuts inside from the right and is brought down by Mauri who gets Lazio's first booking of the day. Free-kick 35 yards from goal, slightly wide...
    • 62' A long ball from Constant fails to reach Moscardelli. Muslera claims. Constant has given Chievo a bit more bite in midfield.
    • 61' All a bit manic as Lazio manage to get the ball clear, breaking down the other end but Floccari's touch lets him down and Chievo hoof to touch.
    • 61' Quick break from the corner as Moscardelli bursts clear, he could be in now as Dias seems to pull his shirt, Biava hacking away for a corner. No foul says the ref.
    • 60' Corner to Lazio as Constant comes on for the hosts. Rigoni I think has made way.
    • 59' Good defending from Dias to calmly play it out of trouble after Moscardelli ran through.
    • 58' Hernanes is taken out by Marcolini, who is booked for his trip from behind.
    • 57' Lazio have indeed reverted back to their usual ways, as Mauro slides a low shot well wide after some crisp passing.
    • 56' Mauri slides it wide right to Liechtsteiner but a poor decision from the Swiss right-back, who smacks it yards over the bar from the sort of angle only Gareth Bale and Marco van Basten score from.
    • 55' Mauri tries a long ball for Zarate but easy for the keeper. Lazio need to return to the pass and move that yielded so many chances in the first half.
    • 54' Lazio knocking it about at the back patiently. A tentative start to this second half.
    • 53' Granoche gets hold of the ball but his attempted cross is poor and cleared by Lazio.
    • 52' A clear and unnecessary block by Matuzalem on Bentivoglio.
    • 51' Hernanes turns nicely and finds Brocchi but, wide to Liechsteiner, the final cross is too high and easy for Sorrentino.
    • 49' The second half hasn't really got going, pretty scrappy as neither side gets a run of passes together.
    • 48' CHIEVO SUB: Granoche is on for Pellissier, who it seems picked up a thigh problem in the first half and can't run it off.
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • - Half-time scores elsewhere: Sampdoria-Udinese and Fiorentina-Parma are goalless, Bologna lead Catania through Marco Di Vaio, Bari and Brescia are 1-1 while Lecce lead 1-0 at Palermo.
    • - STATS: Lazio have completed around 50% more passes than Chievo, 263 to 177.
    • - STATS: Lazio have had five proper chances as opposed to Chievo's one.
    • - STATS: Lazio have had almost 60% possession but territorial status is even, hinting at Chievo's direct approach.
    • 45+2 After a succession of Lazio corners the ref blows for half-time, goalless but the visitors should be ahead after creating plenty of chances including Zarate's bad miss.
    • 45+1 Lazio are convinced it should be a penalty after Dias smacks a shot against Frey, but it clearly hit the Frenchman on the back to fly wide for the corner the ref correctly gives.
    • 45' The corner causes some problems as Biava I think gets a touch towards goal but Sorrentino throws himself on the ball.
    • 44' Cesar puts Floccari's cross behind for a corner as Lazio get some respite after that spell of home pressure.
    • 43' Pellissier almost bullies his way to goal but eventually Biava does enough to put him off and Muslera claims.
    • 42' Mantovani's delivery is headed away by Floccari. Pretty one-dimensional approach that Chievo have but all it needs is one error at the back from Lazio.
    • 41' Chievo have a corner on the left which Radu knocks behind for another one on the right this time...
    • 40' Lazio clear that brief hint at danger from Chievo. The Roman side will be wondering how they haven't scored.
    • 39' Some respite for Chievo as Marcolini wins a throw off Liechtsteiner deep on the left.
    • 38' Great play by Zarate on the left again as he beats Frey and swings over a teasing cross but Cesar whacks the header away with his face to goal as Mauri and Hernanes attack.
    • 37' Zarate wriggles in and out on the left but his cross is headed away by giant Slovenia defender Cesar.
    • 36' That was a bad miss. Zarate is along with Mauri the danger man for Lazio and he has been great so far but he should have buried that. Looks worse on the replay.
    • 35' What a miss from Zarate! Lovely cross from Floccari on the right that flew over the head of Mauri and Cesar and landed to the unmarked Argentine at the far post but he blasted it over with his left foot, goal at mercy. Shocker.
    • 34' Lazio are starting to boss this match now, controlling the ball and hemming Chievo back. 61% possession now.
    • 33' OFF THE BAR! Zarate picked it up on the edge of the box and hammered a wicked drive that dipped just at the death to beat Sorrentino but rattle off the woodwork and away!
    • 31' Great defending by Biava to nod away Bogliacino's clipped pass through to Moscardelli.
    • 30' Lazio have had three good chances so far, while Chievo have barely made Muslera work, his only realy activity to claim high balls. Hard to see the flying donkeys keeping near the top of the standings all season.
    • 29' Lazio on the charge as Hernanes gets hold of the ball from 25 yards, he shifts it on to his left and hammers a low drive along the deck that beats Sorrentino but fizzes inches wide of the far post!
    • 28' Marcolini lofts the ball into the Lazio area but Muslera commands his box well to claim.
    • 27' Mauri almost finds Floccari in a very crowded Chievo box but Sorrentino manages to get hold of the ball. All a bit scrappy now.
    • 25' Corner Chievo on the right then... bit of nonsense in the box which the ref snuffs out... Cleared by Lazio and Cesar is offside on the second ball as he knocks it wide to Moscardelli. Actually he was not off, poor call.
    • 24' Marcolini knocks it in to Moscardelli who is clean through but he oddly opts to use his left for a poor first touch that pulls him wide. He wins a corner though.
    • 23' Dias plays a high ball into the box that Mauri tries to roll off Andreolli on to but the Lazio midfielder flops to the ground and Sorrentino claims.
    • 21' Bentivoglio flies into the box to attack a bouncing ball but it ricochets into the arms of Musler.
    • 20' Brocchi is livid that he hasn't been given a corner after his shot is deflected wide. Bizarre miss from the officials.
    • 19' Mauri again finds space with a header in the box but straight at Sorrentino.
    • 17' Chievo with a typically direct attack, easy for Muslera to pluck the ball from above the head of the much smaller Pellissier.
    • 16' Liechtsteiner with some determined play on the right wing, and the Swiss digs out a teasing cross that Mauri meets unmarked but he gets the header all wrong, bouncing it several yards wide of the far post! Should have done better.
    • 15' Sorrentino is okay. Play was obviously delayed as he received treatment on pitch, being the keeper and all.
    • 13' It was a super run off Cesar from Zarate but the intervention from Sorrentino has come at a cost: He is rolling around the floor in agony, holding his lower back.
    • 12' Mauri with a superb through ball that bisects the home defence and Zarate is in centre-left but out flies Sorrentino to block bravely at his feet!
    • 11' Lazio with what has become a rare spell on the ball, playing it neatly through the middle but falling with the final ball, long and aimless at Sorrentino.
    • 10' Long ball down the right channel has too much on it for Pellissier. It's fair to say Chievo are employing a 'direct' approach.
    • 9' Moscardelli knocks the ball into the Lazio but but Pellissier isn't on his wavelength and Muslera claims.
    • 8' Biava is down, he hurt himself falling on the edge of his own box.
    • 7' Long ball plays Moscardelli clean through after Biava slips but he clearly handles and is lucky not to see a card - Muslera manages to save at his feet anyway.
    • 6' Muslera is forced to come and claim a high ball that Dias and Pellissier were challenging for.
    • 5' Good ball in from Matuzalem but Chievo are lined up to head clear, Rigoni doing the honours.
    • 4' Rigoni is annoyed at how easily Mauri goes down but Lazio have the free-kick on the right, 33 yards from goal.
    • 3' Pellissier races on to Moscardelli's through ball but he is well offside.
    • 2' Good ball in from Mauri on the right but Sorrentino claims well.
    • 1' The first half is underway.
    • 13:55 Chievo can go top if they win today, thanks to Inter's 1-0 defeat at Roma last night. If Lazio bang the goals in and Brescia fail to win, they'll go second, behind Napoli who briefly go top after beating Cesena earlier.
