    Time:90'
    • Udinese
    • AS Roma
    • 90+4' The referee blows for full-time. Roma claim a 2-1 win for the visiting side. Riise picked out Totti and he slammed the ball high into the net. Superb finish. Udinese players unhappy as the referee is escorted off the park.
    • 90+3' GOAL FOR ROMA! Totti slams home a shot with the last kick of the game! What a finish in this match. Surely the winner.
    • 90+2' Asamoah nudges the ball into the Roma net with his hand under pressure from Perrotta. He is booked for the handball.
    • 90+1' Pinzi is booked for a late tackle on Totti.
    • 89' Too much on the free-kick from Pizzaro. Flies too deep. Four minutes to be added. Corradi is the latest man to be be booked.
    • 88' Booking for Di Natale for removing his jersey to celebrate. Totti is booked for dissent as Taddei is fouled at the other end by Zapata.
    • 87' GOAL FOR UDINESE! Di Natale slips the ball home from Corradi's header. Great finish. No chance for Doni and the home side look like they are going to earn a draw.
    • 86' Matej Vydra takes over from Maurizio Domizzi for Udinese. Four minutes left on the clock.
    • 85' Pinzi's cross, but Corradi can only nod the header wide under pressure from Cassetti.
    • 84' Corradi guilty of foul play on Cassetti. He is giving the referee pelters, but the match official is not suddenly going to alter his decision.
    • 83' Zapata's header is knocked away by Taddei. Udinese seem to be running out of ideas.
    • 82' Roma will be three points behind the home side if this result stays the same. Asamoah fails to pick out Isla, but Udinese have a corner.
    • 81' Great and brave defending by Asamoah to head the ball clear as Burdisso seemed set to nod home the second goal on the break.
    • 80' Cuadrado almost goes round Doni, but the Roma keeper reacts to clutch the ball. Udinese are in deep trouble in this match.
    • 79' Isla goes for goal from distance. Really got hold of that shot from 30 yards, but arrives at a nice height for Doni to make the save.
    • 78' 45 goals for Di Natale in 57 games, but has never looked like netting this evening. Still time right enough, still time.
    • 77' Armero goes down in the Roma box, but no claims for a penalty as the referee is quick to wave play on. Roma with plenty of bodies back.
    • 76' Marco Borriello replaces Mirko Vucinic for Roma, who are seeking what would be a morale-boosting win in their bid to finish in the top four.
    • 75' Corradi heads over the bar. Was leaning back. A change coming now for the visitors.
    • 74' Denis is hooked with Bernardo Corradi introduced. Di Natale throws over the free-kick, but Corradi is pushing Burdisso. Free-kick to Roma in their area.
    • 73' Taddei brings down Asamoah and that is a free-kick to the home side, who are set to make another change.
    • 72' Roma going to shuffle their pack as Simone Perrotta replaces Matteo Brighi. Roma look happy with what they have and who can blame them.
    • 71' Abdi departs to be replaced by Juan Guillermo Cuadrado for Udinese.
    • 70' A few of the home players unhappy with the decisions they are getting, or rather are not getting as Cassetti fires wide at the other end.
    • 69' A change coming for Udinese as they try to salvage something from this game. Abdi gets the shot away from Asamoah's pass, but easy take for Doni.
    • 68' Isla hoists in the free-kick, but headed wide by Domizzi. Doni taking his time over this goalkick.
    • 67' Abdi crosses from out wide, but Denis heads over the bar. Goalkick to the visiting side. Time ticking down for Udinese.
    • 66' Isa knocks the ball against Di Natale. Too many players breaking forward there for the home side before Juan knocks the ball out of play for a throw.
    • 65' Rodrigo Taddei takes over from Rosi for Roma. Don't think that will alter Roma's tactics very much.
    • 64' Abdi runs into traffic and Roma can break. Abdi fouls Pizarro from behind. A booking for Abdi. Roma looking to make a change.
    • 63' Armero clobbers Totti, who is really giving those home defenders some grief this evening. Still a class act.
    • 62' Totti's goal is the first goal Udinese have conceded in over seven hours of play. At the moment, they are heading for a first league defeat at home since September. Roma in the box seat as Denis is flagged for offside.
    • 61' Handanovic misses a cross as Juan's header is knocked off the line by Domizzi. So close to a second. Awful goalkeeping by the home keeper.
    • 60' Totti and Zapata involved in a bit of afters. Pushing each other as Roma continue to the attack.
    • 59' Not really sure what Pinzi was thinking about. There was no need for him to make the tackle on Pizarro. Big ask now for Udinese.
    • 58' GOAL FOR ROMA! Totti elects to chip the ball down the middle. As cheeky as you like as Handanovic goes to ground early. A 1-0 lead for the visiting side.
    • 57' PENALTY TO ROMA! Pinzi fells Pizarro and the visiting side are awarded a penalty. Going to be taken by Totti.
    • 56' Totti hammers in the free-kick. Met by Denis, who heads out. Roma continue on the attack.
    • 55' Totti takes a tumble under pressure from Armero and the visiting side have another free-kick in a dangerous position.
    • 54' Vucinic speeds forward at the other end. Got between the home defender and the go, but he wallops his shot well wide of the target. Poor finish really.
    • 53' Di Natale is furious as he is penalised for offside. Was certainly offside, but good play by the forward.
    • 52' Isla smacks a shot wide in space from Asamoah's pass. Fine pass from Asamoah, but Isla could not convert from inside the Roma area.
    • 51' Long ball down the park from Cassetti, but Vucini goes too soon. He is offside.
    • 50' Totti swings the free-kick into the heart of the area, but Zapata keeps his eye on the ball to head clear.
    • 49' Domizzi fouls Brighi and the visiting side have a free-kick outside of the home box.
    • 48' Not too much of an atmosphere out there. It really needs a goal to bring this one to life. Not too clear to see where that is going to come from at the moment.
    • 47' Armero and Rosi collide in what you could describe as a full-blooded challenge. 50-50 ball, but both men are on their feet and on we go.
    • 46' Roma get us off and running for this second half.
    • 45' No time added. Barely 30 seconds if that. Not the worst first half, but neither team committing fully to attack. Maybe that will change in the second period.
    • 44' Not sure how much time will be added to this half..
    • 43' Cassetti again flying into a late tackle on Domizzi. Has to watch his movements having already being booked.
    • 42' Totti takes a tumble under pressure from Abdi and the Udinese midfielder receives a talking to from the referee.
    • 41' Cassetti cuts inside his man, but knocks a raking shot over the bar from distance. That was worth a bash, but always sailing wide of the target.
    • 40' Totti tries to get some action on the ball, but too near the keeper and Handanovic rises unchallenged to pluck the ball from the air.
    • 39' Isla gets in a foot in to deflect Brighi's attempted pass behind for a corner.
    • 38' Pizarro tries to send Riise dashing away down the left flank. Right idea, but the execution was narrowly off. A goalkick in favour of Udinese.
    • 37' Pizarro and Abdi tussle on the halfway line, but the free-kick goes the way of the Roma player. Two evenly matched teams out there.
    • 36' Game ragiing from end to end. Brighi clearly fouled Domizzi in the area. On we go.
    • 35' Just to remind you that Inter beat Cheivo 2-0 earlier this evening. Read about it below here.. Inter win to close gap on Milan
    • 34' Roma on the break, but Pinzi dashes across to knock the ball out with Totti threatening. Good break by Roma there. Very sharp play.
    • 33' Udinese go right back up the other end as Riise knocks the ball behind. Juan is booked for a late foul on Juan.
    • 32' Totti flicks the free-kick into the box. It flies off the head of a home defender, but Handanovic dives to nudge the ball behind. Superb save.
    • 31' Abdi fouls Totti and the home side earn themselves another free-kick.
    • 30' Pizarri's free-kick is pretty poor. Udinese deal with that cross without too many worries. Domizzi has been booked for complaining to the referee.
    • 29' Both teams trying to play football in this match. Just needs a goal to bring this one to life as Domizzi is penalised for pulling Totti's shirt.
    • 28' Abdi uncorks a shot from 25 yards. That effort dipped and swerved, but Doni kept an eye on it to make the save. That was a noteworthy effort.
    • 27' Di Natale has a go at goal from 25 yards. Decent enough shot, but wide of the target. Looks in a spot of discomfort out there. Worry for Udinese.
    • 26' Totti picks out Vucinic, but his control lets him down as Benatia dashes back to clear the ball.
    • 25' Riise with one of those trademark long throw-ins. Zapata tries to challenge Totti before the Roma forward is penalised for backing into the home defender.
    • 24' Isla hurls the ball forward looking for Di Natale, but too much pace on the pass. A goalkick to the visiting team.
    • 23' Roma slowly but surely beginning to enjoy a bit more success. Rosi tries to pick out Riise, but the former Liverpool full-back is offside.
    • 22' Rossi goes long. Far too long before Cassetti is booked for throwing the ball at the face of Di Natale.
    • 21' Cassetti tries to pick out Vucinic with a long ball, but Benatia knocks the ball behind for a corner. Chance for the visiting side.
    • 20' Di Natale flicks the ball into the box, but Rosi can clear and Roma can break.
    • 19' Pizarro tries to pick out Juan, but Zapata has the skills to deal with that situation as he clears the danger.
    • 18' Isla knocks the ball behind and Roma have a corner. No need to concede that corner.
    • 17' Juan knocks the ball away from Denis as the home team continue to push and probe. Roma struggling to get out at the moment.
    • 16' Denis rises in the box. Gets the header at goal, but just over the bar. Good play by Udinese. Should maybe have hit the target with that header.
    • 15' Di Natale free-kick is drilled into the box. Blocked before Denis sees a shot knocked behind via Juan for a corner.
    • 14' Free-kick against Rosi for a late foul on Armero. Those two having a bit of a tussle out wide.
    • 13' The home side really going about this with some verve. Udinese will be within three points of fourth-placed Napoli with a win here.
    • 12' Di Natale tries to release Isla, but Riise comes across to make the clearance. Udinese on the attack early on.
    • 11' Rosi dives under pressure from Armero. The Udinese midfielder is unhappy with those antics. Referee waves play on.
    • 10' Decent shot at goal from Di Natale. Hammered down and into the ground, but bounces up for Doni to save. Solid enough stop from the Roma keeper.
    • 9' Abdi picks out Armero at the back post as the home side attack, but his header is blocked by a visitng defender before Roma get the ball out.
    • 8' Riise on the charge for Roma. Throws over a cross, but headed over by Vucinic in the Roma attack. Lot of work to be done to finish from there.
    • 7' Denis is fouled by Burdisso. Free-kick to the home side. Roma will be within three points of fourth-placed Roma if they can win this match.
    • 6' Rosi tries to play in Totti, but he has overhit the pass and that is goalkick to the home side. Roma starting to find their feet.
    • 5' Armero alert to whack the ball away from Rosi's chipped ball. Roma trying to get on the front foot.
    • 4' Have to ask yourself what Roma keeper Doni was doing there? Extremely poor from the Roma keeper. Here come the visiting side now.
    • 3' Di Natale's cross is palmed out by Doni. Breaks to Benatia, but he has knocked his shot wide of the goal. Golden chance for the home side gone.
    • 2' Isla gets the first shot at goal in the match, but he has cut that wide of the post. Decent effort. Always heading wide.
    • 1' Udinese get us off and running in this one.
