    • Genoa
    • 90+4 The full time whistle is blown. 1-0 Palermo. A much deserved victory for the home side.
    • 90' Four minutes of injury time to be played.
    • 86' Pastore has earned his wages tonight with a masterful display but a goal evaded him all night.
    • 85' Final change for the home side. Pastore is replaced by Massimo Maccarone.
    • 84' Ezequiel Munoz rises high at the far post to send a header goalwards but the ball veers wide at the last moment.
    • 83' Miccoli wriggles free of his marker but his left foot shot is blocked.
    • 82' Kaladze gets his revenge for that earlier Pastore fould with a rugged challenge on the Argentine.
    • 80' Pastore goes in the referee's book for tugging back the rampaging Kaladze.
    • 78' Substitution for Palermo. Goalscorer Pinilla leaves to a standing ovation and Fabrizio Miccoli takes his place.
    • 77' Brilliant footballl from Genoa! Where did that come from? Toni, Destro and Veloso combining before the latter fires goalwards only to be denied by Sirigu.
    • 75' Substitute Destro looks to make an impact but is crowded out by two Palermo defenders before he can even think about directing his header goalwards.
    • 74' Toni flirts with the offside line before being resolutely snubbed. Genoa running out of ideas.
    • 72' Defensive move made by Palermo boss Delio Rossi there. Time to shut up shop perhaps.
    • 70' Substitution for Palermo. Ilicic leaves the field and is replaced by Nicolae Goian
    • 68' All aboard the showboat apparently as Pastore juggles the ball boastfully.
    • 67' Giandomenico Mesto lets fly from 25 yards and picks out someone in the crowd. Disappointing effort.
    • 66' Embarrassing moment for Pinilla who lets the ball roll under his foot and out for a throw in. Schoolboy.
    • 65' Boakye makes his first contribution to the game with a crunching tackle on Pinilla.
    • 63' Third and final change for the visitors with Yiadom Boakye introduced to the field.
    • 62' Substitution for Genoa. Mattia Destro replacing Franco Zuculini.
    • 61' Chaos in the Genoa penalty area with feet flying all the over place before the ball is cleared.
    • 59' Pastore with a great chance to double Palermo's advantage but he is thwarted by Eduardo who makes a superb save.
    • 57' A heavy collision leaves Zuculini writhing in pain but he is back to his feet in no time and play can be resumed.
    • 55' Genoa have resorted to firing long flighted balls in the direction of Toni and the at the moment the Palermo defence are equal to the challenge.
    • 53' Palermo still with the momentum in this game.
    • 52' Pinilla looks to cathc Eduardo off guard with a speculative long range effort but the goalkeeper recovers his position to save with ease.
    • 50' Positive run from Criscito who gets a sight of goal but Sirigu is equal to his left foot shot.
    • 49' Danger man Pastore jinks his way into shooting range but his effort deflects wickedly off the defender and away to safety.
    • 48' Substitution for Genoa. Rudolf Gergely is withdrawn and Miguel Veloso is introduced.
    • 47' Palermo starting the second half very much as they finished the first as Antonio Nocerino tries his luck from a tight angle only to find the side netting.
    • 46' Second half kick off. We are under way once more.
    • 45+2 The half time whistle is blown and how the score is only 1-0 is astounding.
    • 45' Two minutes of first half injury time to be played.
    • 44' Toni finds himself in acres of space but his progress is halted by the offside flag.
    • 43' Genoa look to hit back at the earliest opportunity but Palermo defend a corner kick well.
    • 42' A very well crafted goal from the home side who finally have the advantage their domimance has warranted.
    • 41' GOAL FOR PALERMO! 1-0! At last the deadlock is broken and Palermo have a much deserved lead. Pinilla is frustrated no more after latching on to Pastore's glorious flick and slotting past the advancing Eduardo.
    • 39' Pinilla is left swiping at the post in frustration after failing to convert another chance. His headed effort straight at Eduardo.
    • 38' Zuculini is ruthlessly robbed of possession in the centre circle and Palermo look to capitalise but make a real mess of the counter attack.
    • 36' Zuculini tests his range once more with another shot from distance but the result is the same and the score remains level.
    • 35' Despite Palermo's dominance in this half it is Genoa who have enjoyed the majority of the possession with 56% to the home side's 44%
    • 34' Patient build up play from Genoa releases Criscito on the left wing and he crosses for Franco Zuculini who draws a good save from Sirigu.
    • 33' Meanwhile, Genoa deliver a reminder that they are still in this game and Sirigu is forced into another diving save.
    • 31' How is this match still goalless? Palermo again with a gilt edged chance. Ilicic picks out Pinilla in the box and the striker meets the ball ahead of the sprawling Eduardo but the goalkeeper does enough to put him off and the chance is gone.
    • 29' As long as Palermo fail to make their dominance pay they remain vulnerable to the counter attack.
    • 28' That man Toni almost snatches the lead with a well guided header that looks destined for the far corner before Sirigu makes an athletic save.
    • 27' Pinilla's 25 yard shot loops up off the defender and looks to have Eduardo in trouble but the goalkeeper finds his feet and clutches gratefully at the ball.
    • 25' Luca Toni looks to be only source of attacking inspiration for the visitors.
    • 24' The two sides are separated only by goal difference in the Serie A table but they are a gulf apart in quality on display tonight.
    • 23' Genoa continue to ride their luck. Palermo have come within a whisker of breaking the deadlock on a number of occasions now.
    • 22' Another chance goes begging for the home side and again the post comes Genoa's rescue. Pastore picks out Pinilla at the far post who strikes the upright from inside the six yard box.
    • 21' Antonio Nocerino tries his luck from distance but his shot is wayward.
    • 20' The match briefly burst into life just then. Pastore will be ruing that miss.
    • 19' Immediately Genoa launch a counter attack and Toni fires a fierce drive towards goal but narrowly misses the target.
    • 18' Pastore breaks free of the Genoa defence and finds himself one on one with Eduardo and it is the goalkeeper who comes out on top in this duel with a well timed dive at the feet of the attacker. Great goalkeeping.
    • 16' Loose pass is seized upon brilliantly by Giulio Magliaccio to set up yet another Palermo attack.
    • 15' Genoa will need to regroup if they are to ride out this Palermo storm. The home side on top here.
    • 14' Pastore is proving to be something of an elusive character this evening after being upended once more.
    • 12' That near miss appears to have sparked the home side into life. Much more urgency on display after a tentative opening.
    • 11' Palermo will consider themselves unlucky not to be ahead in this game after Pastore is denied by the post.
    • 9' Again Toni finds himself on the edge of the penalty area but this time he does succeed in getting a shot away but Sirigu is unfazed by the slight deflection and gathers.
    • 7' Javier Pastore is sent crashing to the ground in the centre circle and wins his side a free kick.
    • 6' Luca Toni looks to make room for the shot but is halted in his tracks by the Palermo defence.
    • 5' Ilicic gets up and takes the set piece himself, succesful in clearing the wall but less in beating Genoa goalkeeper Eduardo who saves well low to his left.
    • 4' Free kick in a dangerous position for Palermo after Josip Ilicic is brought crashing to the ground on the edge of the box.
    • 3' Injury for Dario Dainelli who appears to have hurt his shoulder after a sliding challenge on Federico Balzaretti.
    • 2' No hanging around here, Genoa have their first shot at goal without Palermo even having a touch. Salvatore Sirigu remains untested though with the effort drifting wide.
    • 1' Kick off at the Stadio Renzo Barbera. Genoa get the game underway.
    • 19:40 Genoa starting XI: Eduardo, Rafinha, Kakha Kaladze, Dario Dainelli, Andrea Ranocchia, Miguel Veloso, Domenico Criscito, Franco Zuculini, Marco Rossi, Giandomenico Mesto, Luca Toni
    • 19:35 Palermo starting XI: Salvatore Sirigu, Federico Balzaretti, Cesare Bovo, Ezequiel Munoz, Mattia Cassani, Amin Bacinovic, Antonio Nocerino, Giulio Magliaccio, Josip Ilcic, Mauricio Pinilla, Javier Pastore
