    Time:90'
    • Napoli
    • AS Roma
    • 90+3' The full-time whistle goes at San Paolo, and Napoli have comprehensively beaten Roma 2-0 in very impressive fashion! Claudio Ranieri will be under enormous pressure as a result of that defeat, and Roma have suffered another very disappointing result.
    • 90+1' Napoli are not affording their opponents a touch of the ball as they keep possession with supreme confidence.
    • 90' There will be three added minutes at the end of this second half, and Roma look out of it.
    • 89' The hosts continue to stroke the ball around with consummate ease, and this is all too comfortable.
    • 87' Napoli are keeping the ball superbly in their own half, and Roma are not able to compete at all.
    • 85' Brighi makes a slick run down the right, but the move peters out poorly.
    • 83' GOAL!!!! It's an own goal from Juan as Yebda and Cavani combine down the right, before the defender turns the ball into his own net - it's 2-0 to Napoli!
    • 83' Totti wins a free kick for his side with a strong challenge from Maggio conceding the set piece.
    • 81' Zuniga comes on to replace Dossena, and the Napoli defender has played very well indeed.
    • 79' Aronica is booked for a robust challenge on Riise, and that was a definite yellow card.
    • 77' Hassan Yebda comes on to replace Walter Gargano, and the midfielder has had enough after his injury.
    • 75' Rosi is fouled by Maggio, and that was a cynical trip on the substitute.
    • 74' Cicinho is replaced by Aleandro Rosi, and Ranieri is desperate to alter the course of this match.
    • 72' GOAL!!!!! HAMSIK OPENS THE SCORING! The midfielder ghosts in to apply a clinical finish and give his side the lead - it is just what the hosts deserve for all their possession!
    • 70' It's all Napoli as the hosts continue to apply the pressure on the visitors, and Roma are sinking.
    • 68' Totti is battling hard to force the initiative for his side, but they are lacking inspiration.
    • 66' Mirko Vucinic comes on to replace Borriello, and that is a necessary move from Ranieri.
    • 64' Gargano comes off worse after an aerial clash with Pizarro and receives treatment on the sidelines.
    • 62' Cavani charges forward, only to see his shot deflected wide by Cassetti, who makes a good block.
    • 60' Burdisso wins a towering header at the back post to clear the danger as Napoli continue to attack.
    • 58' Riise jinks inside Cavani as the forward looks to put pressure on the left back - good play.
    • 56' Napoli continue to pile on the pressure as Roma sit very deep, and the hosts deserve something for their efforts.
    • 54' Totti fires a low drive well wide of the near post, and that was a pretty poor effort from the forward.
    • 52' Totti stands over the free kick, but it takes an age for the referee to keep the Napoli wall in their required positions.
    • 50' Gargano is booked for a late challenge on Pizzaro, and that was pretty cynical from the forward.
    • 48' It is Napoli who start the brightest in this second half as Gargano and Maggio remain in the thick of everything. Meanwhile, Matteo Brighi comes on to replace Jeremy Menez.
    • 46' The second half is underway at San Paolo, and Claudio Ranieri is imploring his side to begin the half quickly.
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at San Paolo, and it is goalless between Roma and Napoli. It has been a largely uneventful half of football, and let's hope for better in the second.
    • 45' Just one minute will be added at the end of this first half, and Gianello takes the ball down the right for Napoli.
    • 43' Roma stroke the ball around at the back before Gargano harries Cassetti into clearing upfield.
    • 41' The offside flag goes up to deny Cavani as the forward looks to get in behind Juan.
    • 39' It is all Napoli at the moment, and the hosts are enjoying the lion share of possession.

    • 31' Gianello and Gargano exchange passes on halfway, and Napoli continue to keep the ball solidly.
    • 29' Hamsik drives forward at pace, before firing a low shot on target, but Lobont makes a sharp reflex save - he should have scored!
    • 27' John Arne Riise gets down the left at pace for Roma, only to see his run cut short by Hamsik.
    • 25' Cicinho and Juan combine at the back for Roma, and the visitors are building slowly once more.
    • 23' Edinson Cavani forces his way down the left powerfully, before Burdisso makes the challenge.
    • 21' Pazienza and Menez clash in midfield, and the pair are battling hard to gain the upper hand.
    • 19' De Sanctis storms off his line to clear upfield once more, and that is superb keeping.
    • 17' De Rossi and Pizzaro exchange passes on halfway, and the pair are looking very good in midfield.
    • 15' Lavezzi and Cavani combine in attack, before Burdisso intervenes with a sturdy challenge.
    • 13' Totti goes down very theatrically on halfway under a challenge from Pazienza, and there was nothing in that.
    • 11' Napoli enjoy a good spell on the ball now as the hosts settle in nicely with Dossena instrumental.

    • 2' Roma enjoy a good spell of possession with Brighi in the thick of everything for the visitors.
    • 1' We're underway at San Paolo, and Napoli kick us off. Hamsik drives a low shot from range which does not trouble Lobont.
    • 13:55 Right, the players emerge from the tunnel, and Totti leads out a very fired up Roma! Who are you backing to win this match?

    • 13:45 Napoli are 13/10 to win this match, while Roma are 9/4. A draw is priced at 11/5. What do you predict for this encounter?
    • 13:40 Meanwhile, Napoli are sixth in the table on eight points and can go level on points with Milan with a victory.
