    • Palermo
    • 90+5' The home side head away a corner and the final whistle blows! Cagliair have won the Derby delle Isole!
    • 90+5' Cagliari boss Ballardini is going mad on the touchline - he wants the final whistle blown now! Just a few more seconds...
    • 90+3' Pinilla strikes way over the target.
    • 90+2' Mantovani concedes a free-kick in a central area some 20 yards from goal. Ideal for a shot...
    • 90' Five minutes of stoppage time to be played. Palermo will takr real heart from that.
    • 88' Two Cagliari players down on the turf now. You'd suspect at least one of them is faking it.
    • 86' Nainggolan gets downt he flank but, as it's a little early to just shield it in the corner, he makes a cross that none of his team-mates are anywhere near.
    • 84' Cagliari substitution: Lorenzo Ariaudo repalces Ribeiro.
    • 83' GOAL!! CAGLIARI 2-1 PALERMO!! Hernandez as cool as you like! The Uruguayan strokes the ball calmly into the far bottom corner! Great pen!
    • 82' PENALTY!! Handball as a shot is blocked in the Cagliari area! Abel Hernandez places the ball on the spot...
    • 81' GOAL!! CAGLIARI 2-0 PALERMO!! Pinilla hits a free-kick low and hard and Viviano beats it away. The rebound falls for Dessena who finishes past the helpless keeper before the Palermo defenders have had time to react!
    • 79' Migliaccio meets the corner at the far post with a header but it's blocked before Agazzi has time to react.
    • 78' Agazzi leaps to pluck a cross in front of the near post out of the air but in doing so steps out of play. Corner to Palermo.
    • 76' Good break by Cagliari now. Ibarbo slips a ball down the channel for Ribeiro. The Brazilian tries to square it low for Pinilla but the cross is intercepted.
    • 75' At home, Cagliari are unbeaten in their last three meetings against Palermo (two wins and a draw). Can they make it four?
    • 73' Cagliari bring plenty of men back to defend a corner, which they do well, but then lack the outlet to make a quick attack on the break.
    • 71' Despite having less of the ball and the chances, Palermo have been caught offside four times compared to Cagliari's two so far.
    • 69' Palermo substitution: Franco Vázquez replaces Budan.
    • 68' Budan makes a determined leap to send a header on target, but he could not generate anything like the power required to trouble Vivano.
    • 67' Migliaccio shields the ball newar his own corner flag and tries to make the clearance, but the ball only finds a Cagliari player. Eventually they do clear the ball, however.
    • 65' Cagliari substitution: Conti leaves the field on a stretcher and is replaced by Albin Ekdal.
    • 63' Conti is receiving treatment after colliding in mid-air with Pinilla. The goal scorer is fine, but his team-mate is down flat on his back.
    • 62' This is the 22nd “Derby of the Islands” in Serie A: the Sardinians lead by eight wins to seven, six draws complete the record. However, Cagliari have managed to beat Palermo only once in their last six Serie A meetings, 3-1 in their last meeting at the Sant’Elia.
    • 61' So, Palermo boss Bortolo Mutti makes his first roll of the dice. Can his switch spark a turnaround?
    • 60' Plaermo substitution: Giulio Migliaccio repalces Bertolo.
    • 59' As t stands, Cagliari will end the day in ninth place in Serie A.
    • 57' That's Pinilla's second goal in four games since joining Cagliari from Palermo in the January transfer window!
    • 56' GOAL!! CAGLIARI 1-0 PALERMO!! Ibarbo plays a delightful one-two and gets to the byline. He hits the ball across the six-yard box and the unmarked Pinilla is there to tap it in!
    • 55' Once more, the home side are unable to make the most of a set piece, and will have to make do with a throw-in from the other side of the pitch.
    • 54' Ibarbo has switched flanks now as he attacks down the left and wins Cagliari a corner.
    • 52' Patient build-up from Cagliari when they could have perhaps looked to hit Palermo on the break. The cross from the edge of the final third is poor and easily cleared.
    • 50' Agostini tries to get away with taking a throw folliwng a tacle from Balzaretti, but the referee spotted that the last touch came off the Cagliari man.
    • 49' Ibarbo controls a sweeping ball out wide to him in unorthodox style, almost doing the splits as he chests the ball down. Cagliari beginning the second half on the front foot.
    • 48' Remember, Cagliari can move into the top half of the table with a win by two clear goals. Palermo can go within a point of the top six with a victory in Sardinia. Serie A table
    • 46' The second half is underway at the Stadio Sant'Elia!
    • HT Half-time stat from Opta Paolo on Twitter (@Opta{Paolo): "3 – There were only 3 shots in the first half of Palermo vs Cagliari, but all were on target. Accuracy."
    • 45+3' A pretty tepid first-half comes to a close. Cagliari grew into the match a lot more as it wore on, but couldn't find the opener.
    • 45+2' A good, sweeping move forward from Palermo on the counter is brought screeching to a halt by Balzaretti's woeful cross, which sails over the bar.
    • 45' Three minutes of added time to be played at the end of the half.
    • 44' Radja Nainggolan has a pot shot from range which is struck well enough but is right at Viviano, who catches two-handed.
    • 42' Gabriele Perico is barged over Andrea Mantovani as he goes chasing a ball down the flank. The referee rules it was a fair challenge, and gives the goal kick to Palermo.
    • 40' Sadly, this match does not look like replicating that yet.
    • 38' As you might expect, then, when these two sides met in September it was a cracker, with Palermo winning 3-2. in that game, Palermo were 2-0 up inside 15 minutes Match details: Palermo 3-2 Cagliari
    • 36' Palermo, meanwhile, are on a real hot streak. Their last four games saw them beat Genoa 5-3 and Novara 2-0, draw 4-4 at Inter and beat Atalanta 2-1 at home.
    • 34' After a bright start from Palermo it looks like Cagliari are the ones in charge. They have form, too, they beat Roma 4-2 in their last home game.
    • 32' Palermo float a free-kick down the left channel and Balzaretti meets it on the volley... rolls tamely to Agazzi.
    • 30' They go for a shot instead and Agazzi has to be alert to palm it around the post for a corner! Palermo go for the quick corner but Cagliari clear with ease.
    • 29' Free-kick to Palermo after Nicolas Bertolo was brought down on the edge of the box. Good position for a cross here...
    • 28' Agostini battles his way down the left and goes for a shot from a tight angle... Over the bar! It was well hit, but Viviano appeared to have it covered.
    • 26' After a bit of a break in play as Viviano received some treatment, were back underway again.
    • 24' Earlier on Saturday, Milan scored twice in the second period to complete a 2-1 win over Serie A title rivals Udinese at the Stadio Friuli. Match report

    • 20' This is Caglairi's best spell now. Davide Ballardini's team are playing the ball comfortably from one side to the other.
    • 18' Nice rhythm being established in this game now. Both sides takling their turn to get forward. Palermo seem to have slightly more cutting edge.
    • 16' Great save Agazzi! The shot comes across the face of goal and the keeper tips it around the post!
    • 14' Ibarbo has been lively since coming on so early due to an injury to Cossu. The Palermo defence have to double up on him as he comes down the wing.
    • 12' Mauricio Pinilla with great control to bring down a cross and nip around his marker. He fires a well-struck effort wide of the near post! Decent chances for both sides now.
    • 11' Edgar Barreto has a low strike from range saved by Michael Agazzi. First real chance for either side.
    • 10' Ibarbo gets a nudge in the back from Alessandro Agostini but goes to ground rather easily. Free-kick, though.
