    Time:90'
    • Palermo
    • Lazio
    • 90+5 The full time whistle is blown, and the ten men of Lazio have hung on to win 1-0. No doubt for me who they can thank for the victory, goalkeeper Fernando Muslera who pulled off a number of great saves in the second half. The result means Lazio are now 4 points clear at the top of Serie A.
    • 90+4 Cassani evades two defenders down the right but his final ball is poor and it’s easily cleared by Lazio
    • 90+1 Lionel Scaloni comes on for Mauri, as Lazio try to wind the clock down
    • 90 Palermo now resorting to long balls into the Lazio area
    • 88' In the midst of the drama Lazio made another substitution bring of Zarate and replacing him with Alvaro Gonzalez
    • 87' Is all Palermo, but they just can't get the ball past Muslera
    • 85' The Lazio keeper is on fire! This time Maccarone’s corner is taken low to the feet of Pinilla. He has time to shoot low, but Muslera gets down well at his near post to steer it away for another corner
    • 84' Fantastic save again from Muslera! Maccarone’s corner finds the head of Cassani, who’s powers the header towards goal only for Muslera to acrobatically turn it over the bar
    • 83' Palermo still doing much of the pressing, as Pinilla hits a shot just inside the Lazio area, it deflects behind for a corner.....
    • 80' Tempers beginning to flair now, Balzaretti and Lichsteiner go into the referee’s book. Muslera claims a 50/50 ball against Pinilla, it looked like a nasty tangle, but there was no need for many players from both sides to get involved in the aftermath, with Balzaretti and Lichsteiner being the main culprits.
    • 78' Understandably Lazio make a defensive substitution, Brazilian midfielder Hernanes is sacrificed for centre back Gugliemo Stendardo
    • 77' Biava is sent off after recieving a second yellow, and he can have no complaints for a cynical late challenge on Pinilla as Palermo had looked to break
    • 76' Lazio trying to slow the pace down by taking long times to take free kicks and throw ins
    • 75' Just to confirm Lazio will go four points clear at the top of Serie A if they can hang onto this lead
    • 73' Palermo now piling forward in search of an equaliser
    • 72' Zarate curls the ball over the wall towards the top right hand corner but the Palermo keepers read it and saves comfortably
    • 71' It’s been all Palermo but Lazio hit them on the break and Mauri wins a free kick on the edge of the Palermo area…..
    • 70' Maccarone takes a desperate looking long range effort from 30 yards out from the left, and it goes out for a throw in
    • 67' Second penalty shout for Palermo as Pinilla is brought down after a firm challenge by Dias. The referee adjudges the Brazilian centre back to have won the ball
    • 65' What a save from Muslera! A ball is crossed in from the Palermo left which hits a couple of Lazio defenders and then drops to Pinilla, who acrobatically hits it on the volley, but Muslera from almost point blank range claws the ball away. The rebound falls to Pastore, but his tame first time shot is blocked by two Lazio defenders
    • 63' Giuseppe Biava goes into the book for a hefty challenge on Pastore
    • 62' One consolation for Palermo is that they have scored in 13 of their last 14 matches at home in the league
    • 59' Maccarone makes an instant impact as he loses his marker down the right and floats in a cross to the far post, Munoz rises highest, but heads inches wide of Muslera’s goal
    • 57' Abel Hernandez is replaced by former Middlesbrough striker Massimo Maccarone
    • 56' Abel Hernandez pulls up running down the right, he looks in pain. Is likely to be his hamstring.
    • 55' At the other end Zarate nips away from his marker and plays a delightful ball to Mauri who’s inside the area on the right hand side, but the Italians attempt is well blocked by Munoz
    • 54' Hernandez tries a shot from the edge of the Lazio area but it’s well blocked
    • 53' Game has come a little ‘bitty’ in the second half which should suit Lazio with their 1-0 lead
    • 51' After smart work from Floccari and Zarate a ball is whipped in low to the Palermo area, Palermo are able to clear their lines but only as far as Brocchi who attempts a low drive from 30 yards which forces Sirigu into a save
    • 50' Lazio finally make in roads into Palermo’s half only for Floccari to miss control the ball on the turn, and it goes on for a goal kick
    • 49' But as you all know Lazio are so dangerous at hitting teams on the break
    • 48' Palermo have started the half the brighter, keeping possession and their opposition pinned in their own half
    • 47' Palermo will feel slightly hard done by to be trailing at the break, and will hope the pacey Uruguayan Abel Hernandez will be able to change things for the Rosanero
    • 46' Palermo get us underway in the second half
    • 46' Palermo make one substitution with Abel Hernandez replacing Josep Ilicic
    • 45+1 It’s half time at the Stadio Renzo Barbera, and the table toppers hold a 1-0 advantage thanks to a stunning Andre Dias strike. Palermo have arguably had the better of the first half without creating too many clear cut opportunities
    • 45' Big penalty shout for Palermo! Armin Bacinovic gets to the Lazio bye line, cuts the ball back but it hits Lichsteiner on the arm, certainly wasnt deliberate, but was a handball in the area, the referee waves away the protests
    • 43' Zarate causes problems down the Palermo left and whips in a dangerous cross low along the six yard box but no Lazio striker can get a touch to make it 2-0
    • 41' Pastore acrobatically tries an overhead kick on the edge of the area, but again it’s miss hit and goes sailing over the cross bar
    • 40' Palermo just lacking that clinical pass in the final third
    • 38' Pastore wonderfully gets past two Lazio defenders down the right, and then cuts inside, but instead of passing to a team mate in a far better position the Argentinean selfishly shoots high and wide
    • 36' Almost an equaliser for Palermo! Goalscorer Dias rolls a pass back to Muslera who has plenty of time to pick where he is going to kick his clearance, but as he dallies Pastore seems to come from nowhere and is able to block the keepers attempted ball up field, luckily for Lazio, the deflection goes inches over the bar……Heart in mouth moment for the Lazio fans though
    • 34' Lazio trying to take the sting out of the game with some slow passing
    • 33' Balzeretti cuts in from the left, and hits a long range right footed shot along the floor, but is straight at Muslera in the Lazio goal
    • 32' As it stands Lazio will go four points clear at the top of Serie A……Long way still to go though
    • 30' Palermo are having much of the possession since the goal but are yet to calve out any clear cut chances
    • 27' GOAL FOR LAZIO!!! What a goal it was too. ANDRE DIAS volleys in a whipped in free kick from Ledesma on the right. The Brazilian centre back struck the ball, which was slightly behind him, into the top right hand corner of the net, leaving Sirigu with no chance
    • 26' Hernanes tries to feed Mauri down the centre but the Italian midfielder is offside
    • 25' The game is becoming a little stretched and is quite end to end, with both sides looking to hit each other on the break
    • 24' Lazio beginning to come more and more into the game
    • 23' Corner comes to nothing
    • 22' Lazio then break themselves through Floccari, who finds himself in the area and makes his way to the bye line, but his cut back which was looking for Zarate is deflected out for a corner
    • 20' Palermo hit Lazio on the break on the left, Pinilla decides to cut inside and tries a speculative 30 yard right footed effort, but he doesn’t quite catch it, and its easy for Mulera to collect
    • 18' Palermo attack down the left through Balzaretti, but Lazio are able to block the cross and clear
    • 16' So far Lazio’s final ball has been lacking, as Ledesma tries to whip a cross in down the right but badly miss hits it straight out for a goal kick
    • 14' The dangerous Josep Ilicic takes a left footed shot from the edge of the area, but it lacks the power to beat Muslera who scampers across his goal to collect the ball
    • 12' The league leaders at the moment are struggling to get a foothold in the game, as of yet we’ve yet to see much of their influential front four of Zarate, Brocchi, Floccari and Mauri
    • 10' Migliaccio puts another ball into the Lazio box, which almost drops onto the foot of Pastore, but just as he swings his boot at it, Dias is there to intercept
    • 8' Couple of dangerous balls put into the Lazio box by Bacinovic, but the Biancocelesti have so just about dealt with them, although not entirely convincingly
    • 6' In Lazio’s first attack Floccari is adjudged to be just offside after a long ball from Mauri
    • 5' Palermo have started the better of the two sides enjoying the lions share of possession in the first 5 minutes
    • 4' Pastore really should’ve tucked that chance away, to be fair to him he was probably in a little shock that a chance as good as that would fall to him so early in the game
    • 2' A chance after just 30 seconds for Palermo, Biava dallies on the ball at the back for Lazio, and is pounced on by Ilicic, who feeds Pastore, who is unmarked inside the Lazio penalty area, but his shot is tame, and Muslera is able to make a comfortable save.
    • 1' Lazio get the game underway in their changed stripey black and white strip
    • 11.30 Both managers have been winding each other up with some feisty and niggling comments about each others clubs. It should be a lively game.
    • 11.28 The Stadio Renzo Barbera (formerly known as La Favorita) is about three quarters full.
    • 11.22 Lazio however, are unchanged from their last league outing, a 2-1 victory over Cagliari last week.
    • 11.18 Palermo make one change to last weeks defeat against Udinese. With Romanian international Dorin Goian being replaced by Cesare Bovo at the back.
    • 11.15 Team News from the Stadio Renzo Barbera - Palermo; Sirigu, Balzaretti, Bovo, Munoz, Cassani, Bacinovic, Nocerino, Migliaccio, Ilicic, Pastore, Pinilla /// Lazio; Muslera, Lichtsteiner, Biava, Dias, Radu, Brocchi, Ledesma, Zarate, Hernanes, Mauri, Floccari.
    • 11.10 The Rosanero have won just once at the Stadio Renzo Barbera so far in the league this season, and will expect a tough task against a rejuvenated Lazio side.
    • 11.06 Standing in between Lazio and a four point lead at the top, are eighth placed Palermo. Palermo have had mixed form of late, and will be looking to bounce back from last weeks 2-1 defeat to Udinese. Lazio however are unbeaten in league and cup since their opening day loss to Sampdoria.
    • 10.57 Lazio will be looking to extend their lead at the top of Serie A to four points, after AC Milan yesterday failed to capitalise on their opportunity to go top. As Juve's Del Piero made history.
