    Time:90'
    • Lecce
    • Lazio
    • 90+2 The ref puts Lazio out of their misery - they did what was asked of them but Milan barely showed up in the other game, meaning Udinese come fourth.
    • 90+1 In the first of two minutes added time.
    • 90' Lecce break again, Lazio look depressed as news filters of Milan's no-show at Udine.
    • 89' Chevanton is caught offside. Milan are mucking about at Udine now - they've brought on Flavio Roma so he can say goodbye to the fans.
    • 88' Massive delay as the wall is arranged and the laser stopped and Chevanton takes but well over. Poor.
    • 87' Chevanton wants this... some douche is pointing a laser at Musler'a face...
    • 86' Chevanton on another mazy run and Garrido trips him on the edge of the box.
    • 84' Chevanton puts the corner in and Munari with the header and Muslera tips it away! Great save and he gets it clear of Lecce players rushing in on the rebound!
    • 83' SUBSTITUTION: Lichtsteiner is off for Scaloni.
    • 82' The break is on for Lecce, Chevanton on the edge of the box, he turns inside and out and smacks one in but tipped over by Muslera!
    • 81' Donati has a pop after cutting in from the right but Muslera is equal to it.
    • 80' Down the other end a half chance for Floccari but well over from him.
    • 79' Chevanton has a pop but well wide.
    • 77' Lazio are running this game now, with everything crossed as they pray for Milan to do something...
    • 75' All going a bit mental in Udinese - they have hit the bar. Milan are barely bothered.
    • 74' In this game Floccari forces an excellent save from the keeper Rosati after running through down the right!
    • 72' PENALTY SAVED! Di Natale took the penalty and Abbiati tips it on to the post! Lazio breathe a sigh of relief.
    • 71' There's a penalty for Udinese against Milan - if this goes in, Lazio can pretty much kiss the Champions League goodnight...
    • 70' Ledesma clears but Donati has the ball back.
    • 69' Corner to Lecce down the other end as Garrido does well to block Chevanton's finish.
    • 68' Good stop by Rosati from Floccari, who came on for Rocchi five minutes ago.
    • 66' Zarate wide to Mauri, nice cross but headed away.
    • 65' No need for Lazio to do anything but wait this out and pray Milan awake from their slumber - they shouldn't hold out though, Milan are doing naff all in Udine.
    • 63' That was actually quite funny - Vives flew in with the volley, spinning off his boot in off the bar. Nice. No-one was there to finish it too.
    • 62' Own goal. Hacked into the roof of his own net by Vives trying a clearance of what was a poor corner from Zarate to the near post.
    • 61' Giacomazzi covering to knock it behind as Zarate prepared to finish Mauri's ball.
    • 60' Wasteful from Rocchi, well wide as he tried to flick Zarate in.
    • 59' Lazio playing keep ball now as they try to take the sting out of their wounded hosts...
    • 58' Just wide from Corvia! Great right foot shot from well out after a run inside from the left. It bounced clear of the keeper's diving arm and flew inches wide at the last!
    • 57' Chevanton is over this one but he smacks it well over.
    • 56' Biava gives away a free-kick but taken too quickly to send Chevanton through. Pulled back for another go, 30 yards out.
    • 54' Zarate to take the penalty... roof of the net. 3-2!
    • 53' SUBSTITUTION: Lecce back up keeper Rosati comes on for Di Michele.
    • 52' Rocchi runs clean through and he rounds Benassi who takes him out this time and it's a red card and a penalty.
    • 50' Corvia flies in to meet the cross by Coppola but it hits the back of Lichtsteiner and flies into the arriving Munari and wide! What a chance!
    • 49' SUBSTITUTIONS for Lecce as Corvia and Chevanton come on.
    • 48' Zarate is played clean through and he rounds Benassi, who almost takes him down but he stays on his feet and hits it into the side netting!
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • 45+2 Half time and it's 2-2! Cracking game so far.
    • 45+1 Lecce come forward again... Cleared by Liechtsteiner.
    • 44' Two minutes added time being played.
    • 42' Phew. Not much time to breathe here as Ledesma has a pop but well over.
    • 41' 2-2! Piatti with a super low drive just inside the far post from a tight angle on the left! What a goal from Piatti! What a game!
    • 40' Lecce come forward now - this is end-to-end - but Hernanes back covering is able to clear.
    • 39' Rocchi slides Mauri in now but his low finish on the run is too close to Benassi!
    • 38' JUST OVER FROM ROCCHI! Flying in to meet Mauri's superb cross, but the header clears the bar.
    • 37' Well that looked sickening - for Mesbah, who got the full force of Muslera's punch in the head. He's fine though. Hard.
    • 36' Mesbah is offside running on to a long ball and he collides with Muslera, who is down...
    • 35' Right back atcha! Zarate makes it 2-1 with a sweet low finish, from the right and across Benassi after Lecce fall asleep on the break. A lovely one-two with Rocchi, slick play on the edge of the box.
    • 33' WHAT A GOAL FROM COPPOLA! He lobs the keeper Muslera from the right side of the box! A first-time volleyed lob! A rare strike, you don't see many of them.
    • 32' Hernanes with a low drive from range that Benassi claims at the second attempt.
    • 31' Di Michele leads with the arm and Lazio have a free-kick. Given away though but Mesbah can't control the crossfield pass and it's a throw to Lazio.
    • 30' Mauri crosses in but Vives clears. Lazio come again though as Liechtsteiner crosses but over the head of Hernanes and away.
    • 29' I think Coppola is hurt after that last-gasp slide, maybe hitting the post himself.
    • 28' Piatti with another good ball in and Guiliatto almost meets it but cleared. Lazio break and there are no Lecce defenders and Rocchi is in, he has Zarate with him but rounds the keeper himself and this is 2-0 but the finish is a bit weak and Coppola racing back slides in to poke it off the line!!
    • 27' Good ball in from Mesbah, half-cleared and Mesbah drills it in low but Muslera holds on.
    • 26' Still goalless in the other game - as it stands Udinese would come fourth. Lazio need Milan to do them a favour, and by all account they aren't that interested.
    • 25' Decent ball in from Vives and Giacomazzi attacks it but there's been a foul and Lazio have a free-kick.
    • 24' Corner to the hosts on the left...
    • 23' Lazio knocking it about at the back now... That last chance was a clear warning that there are plenty more goals in this team if you come at them and allow the break.
    • 22' ZARATE HITS THE POST! A super run off the ball to get in down the left and his lobbed finish took a big deflection and looped off the far post and away. Mauri with the pass.
    • 21' Di Michele is put through but rightly is called offside.
    • 20' JUST WIDE BY DI MICHELE! He met the corner with a flick but it was just wide! Great stuff from Lecce.
    • 20' Di Michele just wide! The curler from the righ was deflected past the top left, he was put in by a super Coppola run.
    • 19' Zarate and Brocchi combine on the right this time but Vives brings it clear.
    • 18' Mesbah has a pop with his left but well wide.
    • 17' DIAS HEADS IT AWAY ON THE LINE! What a block! Di Michele's flying volley was surely going in!
    • 16' Zarate cuts inside from the left and shoots low but easy for Benassi.
    • 15' The corner is cleared, Lecce come again though as Piatti slides Mesbah in but his cross is blocked.
    • 14' JUST OVER BY Mesbah! Great cross from Donati on the right, Piatti met it and it struck Liechsteiner's back on the way out otherwise it was in!
    • 13' Di Michele goes down in the box but Dias got the ball says the ref!
    • 12' Munari and Donati combine but a good header away from Dias.
    • 11' This is a good response from Lecce with Lazio sitting very deep all of a sudden as the hosts come at them.
    • 9' Almost a good move for Lecce but played beyond the winger and out for a goal kick.
    • 8' Rocchi almost gets in again but good defending this time.
    • 6' Lovely finish from Rocchi after a heavy touch seemed to have taken him wide! 1-0 Lazio, he chased down a long pass and slid it across the keeper and inside the far post.
    • 5' Corner to Lecce on the right after a misunderstanding between Muslera and his defence.
    • 4' Nice ball inside from Zarate but Giuliatto hacks away from Rocchi.
    • 3' Rocchi heads wide after a good cross from Brocchi. First half-chance of the game.
    • 1' A couple of minutes behind schedule, the first half is underway!
    • 19:40 TEAMS - Lecce: Benassi, Donati, Giacomazzi, Giuliatto, Brivio, Munari, Vives, Coppola, Mesbah, Piatti, Di Michele /// Lazio: Muslera, Liechtsteiner, Garrido, Dias, Biava, Hernanes, Ledesma, Brocchi, Zarate, Mauri, Rocchi
    • 19:35 Lazio and Udinese are level on head to head, so this goes down to goal difference if points and up level. Lecce are 17th but well clear of the drop zone so let's not worry about them; Lazio are fifth, two points behind Udinese in fourth. Udinese host Milan, their fat goal difference meaning a draw would see them hold on to third, unless Lazio put eight past Lecce. Roma are three points and nine goals shy of Lazio. That is all. Serie A standings
    • 19:30 Lecce host Lazio with the visitors needing a win and a Udinese defeat to champions Milan in order to qualify for the Champions League play-offs. LIVE from 7.45pm!
