    • '96 Giaccherini's breakaway comes to nothing, and that is full time. What a game at the Olimpico! It ends 1-1. Daniele De Rossi opened the scoring in the fifth minute for Roma, but Giorgio Chiellini levelled matters just after the hour, and then Francesco Totti missed a penalty a minute later.
    • 95' Pirlo's free kick is fielded well by Stekelenburg.
    • 94' Totti's chipped pass at the other end is too heavy for Perrotta, and the chance is wasted.
    • 93' Elia scoops a ball over the Roma defence, but it comes to nothing.
    • 90' Six minutes of added-on time!
    • 88' De Rossi in the book for a challenge on Giaccherini.
    • 86' Totti overelaborates and is denied by Barzagli. But why did he cut back in from the right after being set up by Lamela? Did he not trust his right foot?
    • 85' Quagliarella denied by the shoulder of Stekelenburg, after he had been set through on goal by Elia. Roma are hanging on!
    • 84' Each side make their final substitution. Eljero Elia replaces Pepe for Juventus, whilst Marco Borriello comes on for Osvaldo.
    • 84' Stekelenburg saves from Giaccherini's shot across goal. This is cup-tie football!
    • 83' At the other end, Simplicio chips the ball straight into the arms of Buffon when perhaps he could have found Totti.
    • 82' Lichsteiner stabs the ball towards goal from Vidal’s low cross from the right, but the Swiss is just off target.
    • 81' Quagliarella's shot from the left is weak and at Stekelenburg, but Roma were lucky there, as they gave the ball away again in midfield.
    • 80' Angel fails to see Perrotta's great run to the near post, and the chance is wasted.
    • 79' Osvaldo cuts inside Marchisio on the edge of the box and tries to chip Buffon, but the ball floats over the crossbar. Great effort though.
    • 78' Pirlo fouls Totti on the edge of the area, but the Roma captain wastes a quick free-kick.
    • 77' That is a lovely one-handed catch by Stekelenburg to deal with Pirlo's cross.
    • 76' Bonucci seems to foul Perrotta, but no free-kick is given.
    • '76 Perrotta shoots wide from a difficult angle.
    • 73' Pjanic asks to be subbed, and on comes Simone Perrotta for Roma. I wonder if that was from an injury from that last Chiellini tackle?
    • 72' Another great Chiellini challenge, this time on Taddei as he runs down the right channel.
    • 72' Juventus' Estigarribia replaced by Emanuele Giaccherini.
    • 71' Pjanic denied by a Chiellini tackle as he attempts to pull the ball back from the touchline.
    • 70' Lamela does well as a makeshift left-back to ease Quagliarella off the ball.
    • 69' Quagliarella gets a yellow as he kicks the ball away after being penalised for offside. He has only been on a minute!
    • 68' Osvaldo deemed offisde as the excellent Chiellini steps up.
    • 67' Fabio Quagliarella replaces Matri.
    • 66' Bonucci shown a yellow card for holding back Osvaldo.
    • 65' Chiellini sees a volley from a Lichsteiner pull-back charged down. Why does he keep spearing in the opposing area!
    • 65 Greco trips Matri, and earns himself a place in the book.
    • 63' Vidal got a yellow card for the foul. This is some match now, with the Juventus fans now sounding very loud.
    • 62' Penalty SAVED by Buffon! Roma go up the other end and Lamela is tripped by Vidal in the box. But Buffon beats out Totti's kick.
    • 60' Juventus equalise through Chiellini's header. Vidal pokes the ball wide for Estigarribia, who miskicks, but the defender gets in between De Rossi and Heinze to head the loose ball home.
    • 58' Pirlo's free-kick is charged down by the Roma wall, and the head of a now-dazed Totti in particular.
    • 57' Fabio Simplicio replaces 19-year-old Viviani.
    • 56' Lamela fouls Vidal 25 yards out. How many is that now for Lamela?!
    • 54' Lamela seems to elbow Lichsteiner as they jump for the ball. The stretcher is called on, as Conte on the touchline fumes.
    • '52 Marchisio is struggling wth the after-effects of that Greco challenge.
    • 50' Barzagli clears from Osvaldo as he prepares to shoot home Totti's cross from the right. Great defensive play from the Italian.
    • 50' Greco gets a yellow card for a challenge on Marchisio, then kicking the ball away.
    • 48' Heinze cuts out a Pepe cross from the right, after the winger had been set up by Matri. The Argentinian then berates his team-mates for not helping him and De Rossi out more.
    • 48' Lamela fouls Lichsteiner, but still no yellow card shown by the referee.
    • 47' A flare on the pitch by Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon's goal! Aren't they meant to be banned? A fireman comes on to deal with it.
    • 46' Back underway at the Olimpico. Juve get the half underway, no changes from either side.
    • 45' No injury-time. It is 1-0 to Roma at the Olimpico at half-time. De Rossi has been immense at the back, but Roma are sloppy in midfield.
    • 43' Chiellini's long ball for Estigarribia goes into touch. The Paraguayan is not getting much to feet.
    • 42' Heinze intercepts Pepe's rather weak cross from the right. But the chance came as Roma, again, give the ball away.
    • 41' Marchisio fouls Totti in the centre-circle. The Roma captain is getting into the game more and more.
    • 40' His free-kick is low under the wall, but is weak and Stekelenburg can save easily down to his left.
    • 39' Viviani fouls Marchisio 25 yards from goal, giving Andrea Pirlo a chance at goal.
    • 38' Viviani sets up Osvaldo down the right channel, but Chiellini is having none of his fancy stepovers and bundles him off the ball.
    • 37' Vidal sets up Pepe in the box with a lovely reverse pass, but the winger shoots straight and weakly at Stekelenburg. The chance came as Roma gave the ball away in midfield.
    • 35' Totti leaps for the ball and then volleys at goal, but the referee blows for handball.
    • 34' Heinze makes a great tackle to deny Matri on the edge of the area, then charges out of defence. Matri left on the carpet in a heap.
    • 32' Osvaldo overruns the ball as he enters the area, after being gifted the ball by Estigarribia. That was another example of his lack of composure.
    • 30' Vidal toe-pokes an effort just wide from 25 yards. Not sure that Stekelenburg would have saved that if it was on target.
    • 29' De Rossi clears again, as Juve break after Angel's initial attack is thwarted.
    • 27' But Lamela breaks from the corner, and after a one-two, Totti heads for goal. But it goes wide. Juve look shocked at the speed of the break.
    • 26' De Rossi blocks again, this time from Vidal. Corner for Juve.
    • 24' Great save by Roma goalkeeper Stekelenburg from Estigarribia's left-footed shot across goal. The Dutchman needed a strong arm to keep the ball out. Juve are looking threatening now though.
    • 23' Lichsteiner at full stretch clears from Taddei's cross. Viviani was instrumental in the build-up. Roma are playing well, and showing whole-hearted commitment.
    • 22' Osvaldo not penalised for what looked an obvious trip on Stephan Lichsteiner.
    • 21' Lamela over-elaborates when set down the right channel by Totti. He should have crossed first time, and apologises to his team-mates for not doing so.
    • 20' De Rossi and Heinze step up in tandem, and Matri is caught offside. Probably not for the last time tonight!
    • 18' Taddei does a few stepovers in the Juventus box, but Bonucci clears his cross. The subsequent corner is cleared.
    • 16' Estigarribia fouls Rodrigo Taddei as he runs for the ball near the corner flag. The Brazilian was canny there as he fell to the ground.
    • 14' Pepe is offside as Juventus break.
    • 13' Totti fouls Leonardo Bonucci, to the anger of the Roma legend.
    • 12' Heinze throws himself in front of Pepe to block, after Jose Angel gives the ball away. Great commitment from the Argentinian.
    • 11' Matri gets in between Heinze and De Rossi to Pepe's cross, but heads wide. De Rossi is playing well in the centre, but his positioning is a bit suspect.
    • 9' Marchisio's long-range effort is saved by Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, and Pepe is offside as he sniffed a follow-up.
    • 8' Osvaldo dispossessed by Andrea Barzagli on the touchline, after a long ball by Totti. Great tackle from the Juventus centre-half.
    • 7' Juve corner, but Giorgio Chiellini's header is blocked by Heinze.
    • 5' GOAL for Roma! De Rossi, the makeshift centre-half! Totti takes a short corner and loops it to the back post. De Rossi rather mishits his volley, but Vidal completely miskicks on the line and it dribbles in. 1-0 to the home side.
    • 5' Corner for Roma. Intelligent play by Osvaldo.
    • 4' Simone Pepe bundles Gabriel Heinze into the assistant referee. The 10,000 travelling fans enjoyed that!
    • 3' Greco catches Arturo Vidal, but referee rules no foul.
    • 2' De Rossi wins his first battle with Alessandro Matri.
    • 1' Roma get us underway, playing right to left.
