    • Parma
    • AS Roma
    • 90+5' There goes the final whistle! A 1-0 win for Roma, who enjoy their first victory under new coach Luis Enrique.
    • 90+3' Spell of Parma pressure, but Osvaldo is fouled by Giovinco, who is booked. Roma so close to this first win of the season.
    • 89' Rosi caught by Lucarelli. Five minutes to be added to this match.
    • 88' De Rossi goes into the book for kicking the ball away.
    • 87' Jadid clips De Rossi with a late tackle. Roma trying to waste as much time as possible.
    • 86' Mirante with a goalkick. Needs to get this ball up the park. Time ticking down on Parma's hope in this one.
    • 85' Offside flag goes up against Biabiany. That miss of his may be the key moment of the night.
    • 84' Roma go all the way back to Lobont. Parma win it back before Totti takes out Ze Eduardo and the home team have a free-kick.
    • 83' Lucarelli takes out Bojan, and the visiting side have a free-kick which they are in no rush to take.
    • 82' Ze Eduardo replaces Crespo. Not sure what is wrong with the striker. Maybe an injury.
    • 81' Bojan slips the ball to Totti. Roma break, but then go backwards for some reason. Osvaldo caught offside.
    • 80' More patient, possession play by Roma after that flurry of Parma pressure. Bojan drills a shot at goal, but wide of the target.
    • 79' Pjanic is replaced by Fabio Simplicio. Roma looking to see this one in for the final 10 minutes.
    • 78' Totti goes short to Pjanic, but his cross is disappointing as it flies beyond everybody in the box.
    • 77' Pjanic with the cross from out wide. Missed by Mirante and the visitors have a corner.
    • 76' Giovinco's corner is flicked on by Crespo, but Jadid can't force the ball home. Roma almost undone by that set-piece.
    • 75' Lobont booked for time-wasting in the Roma goal. Meanwhile, Parma have a corner here.
    • 74' Flashing drive by Totti creeps wide of goal. Brilliant effort from the visiting skipper. Roma continue to lead 1-0.
    • 73' Biabiany bounds past Heinze out wide, but manages to screw his shot wide when a pass across goal would have set up Giovinco for the equaliser. Great chance gone.
    • 72' Lobont spills the shot from Jadid, but Heinze gets in between Gobbi and his keeper to make sure Parma can't score.
    • 71' Modesto showing some wing skills, but the cross is poor. Meanwhile, Osvaldo appeals in vain for a backpass against Parma after Mirante picked up Paletta's ball.
    • 70' Bojan takes over from Borini for Roma.
    • 69' Biabiany rises well in the area to get a header in, but can only nod the ball into the ground as it bounces up off the turf and into the arms of Lobont.
    • 68' Biabiany tries to get a move going. Crespo dives looking for a free-kick and Roma can break. Borini fouls Lucarelli. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 67' Floccari departs to be replaced by Hernan Crespo, Parma's record goalscorer.
    • 66' Totti lifts the free-kick over the wall. Just too high from 25 yards.
    • 65' Zaccardo catches Borini late and that is a booking for the home full-back. Totti may well have a shot at goal from this free-kick.
    • 64' Pjanic fouled by Modesto. Roma in control of the ball and holding a lead. 60% of possession should bring about more goals, but Parma haven't given up the ghost.
    • 63' Floccari penalised for use a high boot. Roma certainly enjoying the better moments in this second period.
    • 62' Change then for Parma as Jadid takes over from Galloppa.
    • 61' Osvaldo drifts past Gobbui, but he sees the shot whizz wide. So close from the goalscorer.
    • 60' Parma ready to throw on Jadid as De Rossi whacks out the header from Modesto. Better play out wide by Biabiany.
    • 59' Totti with the delivery from the corner, but Heinze nods over. That was a chance for the second. Roma would dearly love a second one.
    • 58' Roma win a corner as Zaccardo is forced to knock it behind from Angel's cross.
    • 57' Roma certainly looking a lot brighter since they scored that goal. Keeping the ball, but can they create a chance for a second goal.
    • 56' Giovinco races alongisde Burdisso before taking an awkward tumble. Bit of treatment needed. Luis Enrique looking all very relaxed on the touchline.
    • 55' De Ross and Tottie try to send Osvaldo racing clear, but his first touch lets him down as Mirante collects.
    • 54' Heinze gets the shot by Modesto out of the danger area before Burdisso heads out Giovinco's corner.
    • 53' Borini takes up another decent position out wide, but he makes a mess of the attempted cross ball as it flies out of play. Parma suiddenly under the cosh.
    • 52' Rosi looked like his night was finished, but what a contribution. Mirante was a bit slow getting across his goal, it must be said.
    • 51' GOAL!! Osvaldo scores from a header and Roma lead!! Rosi back on the park to accept the pass from Borini. Fine cross and the former Bologna man nets with a fine header.
    • 50' Bit of a delay. Need to make sure Rosi is okay with a neck injury. Stretcher is on for the Roma defender. Another change coming for the visiting side soon.
    • 49' Looked like a clash of heads between Rosi and Burdisso. Rosi needing the physio on. Taken a sore one there.
    • 48' Giovinco presses Heinz, but he turns to whack the ball off the Parma player for a goalkick.
    • 47' Nicolas Burdisso takes over from Kjaer for Roma, who was lucky not to be red carded minutes before half-time.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period.
    • 45' No time added as the half-time whistle sounds. Not much in this one. 0-0 at the break.
    • 44' Giovinco lifts the ball over the wall, but can't get it down quickly enough. Goalkick to the visitors.
    • 43' Kjaer trips Biabiany, and he is lucky to avoid a second yellow card. Could easily have been off. Free-kick to the home side 30 yards out.
    • 42' Totti decides to go for goal seconds later, but this time he fails to get hold of the shot as the ball spins wide of the target.
    • 41' Giovinco guilty of pushing Heinze in the back. Free-kick to Roma.
    • 40' Pjanic smashes a shot over seconds later. Roma left to rue their luck.
    • 39' Glorious chance for Osvaldo! Mirante made a mess of Totti's drive. Tipped it onto the post, but somehow manages to block the rebound from close range as Osvaldo followed up. Should have been the opener.
    • 38' Kjaer clears from Modesto's cross. Decent move by Parma heading down their left flank with Gobbi also very much to the fore.
    • 37' Osvaldo rises to head out the corner from Giovinco before Borini dashes back to pick the pocket of Biabiany as he prepared to pull the trigger.
    • 36' Giovinco's driven free-kick deflects off Totti and the home side have a corner.
    • 35' Kjaer with the late tackle on Modesto. Strong challenge, but he is booked. Wasn't much in that.
    • 34' Biabiany tackles Angel, but the decision goes in favour of Parma. Angel none too happy with the referee there.
    • 33' Osvaldo earns a spot of room in the home box, but fires a volley across goal. No takers. We remain at 0-0.
    • 32' 31 minutes gone and Roma have yet to fire a shot at the home keeper Mirante. Says it all really. Luis Enrique looks on from the side.
    • 31' Morrone brought down by Perrotta. Lucky to avoid a booking there with Parma ready to launch the counter attack.
    • 30' Angel showing some neat skills out wide, but he loses the ball and Zaccardo is going to take this throw-in in the home half.
    • 29' Roma with plenty of bodies in the midfield area before Pjanic whacks a shot wide from 30 yards out.
    • 28' Giovinco lets fly from from the edge of the area, but a decent stop from Lobont who dived low to his right to save.
    • 27' Kjaer for Pjanic then onto Totti, but Parma break the move up before Heinz races back to clear the ball from Floccari.
    • 26' Heinz and Morrone clash in the visiting area. Morrone attempts a dive, but was never a penalty. Roma with it at the back.
    • 25' De Rossi out to block the cross from Modesto. Another corner from Giovinco, but Angel clears the danger.
    • 24' Much like the game against Siena the other night, Roma not going anywhere with any great conviction. Has to be a concern to the travelling fans.
    • 23' Borini fouls Morrone and the home side can launch it long. Totti then with a fine ball out of defence seconds later. More possession play by Roma.
    • 22' Heinz rises to meet the delivery from Totti, but Parma have enough bodies back to scramble it clear.
    • 21' Roma happy to keep the ball, but again they fail to go anywhere with it. Totti smacks a shot from distance, but it hits Lucarelli before going behind for a corner.
    • 20' Kjaer with the header out of defence. All a bit scrappy at the moment as Parma prepare to take a throw-in deep in their half.
    • 19' Roma undefeated in 12 matches against Parma, winning nine of them.
    • 18' Modesto tries to pick out Floccari, but too much pace on that as Heinze watches it head behind the Roma goal.
    • 17' Modesto clipped by Borini. Giavinco's cross is blocked by Angel. Throw-in to the visitors. Galloppa picks out Giovinco, but he drags the shot wide of goal.
    • 16' Totti unhappy after he is penalised for taking a chunk out of Morrone. No booking as Parma win possession.
    • 15' Francesco Totti has already scored 15 goals against Parma, more than against any other Serie A side. He'll be hoping for more of the same this evening.
    • 14' Mirante punches out Totti's corner as Parma look to break up the park. Home side in possession, but Gobbi loses it with a poor first touch.
    • 13' Paletta knocks the ball out from Angel's delivery before Zaccardo clears from Angel's cross. A corner to Roma.
    • 12' Lucarelli with the header from Giovinco's delivery. Narrowly over the bar. Lobont would not have got there. So close to the opening goal.
    • 11' De Rossi tackles Floccari and the home side have the first corner of the night.
    • 10' Poor stuff really from Giovinco as he smacks the shot into the wall. Parma trying to build up a head of steam in attack.
    • 9' Borini takes down Gobbi with a late challenge and Parma have their own free-kick here. Chance to test this Roma rearguard.
    • 8' Totti has a go at goal, but the ball hits the wall. Tries a little chip seconds later, but too much pace on the ball as Mirante comes out to collect.
    • 7' Morrone pulls back the shirt of De Rossi as the visitors are awarded a free-kick around 30 yards out.
    • 6' Parma have already conceded eight goals in the first three games of this season, they had conceded nine in their previous 11 Serie A fixtures.
    • 5' Decent play between Osvaldo and Totti. Goes for the chipped crossed, but just lifts the ball over the bar as he tried to pick out Perrotta. Goalkick to the home side.m
    • 4' Osvaldo goes in late on Morrone and the home side have a free-kick which Mirante will launch down the park.
    • 3' Roma again fraternising with this passing game. Borini wins a bit of space, but can't control the ball in the area. Bright enough start from the visitors.
    • 2' Angel goes for goal from distance. Fine piece of play, but a bit too much height on the shot as it flies over the bar.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one.
    • 19.40 Luis Enrique is concerned having yet to taste a victory as Roma boss this term. Luis Enrique (Roma): “I am worried at the whole situation, but above all the lack of self-belief in the players," he confessed. "I had the same problem in Spain, as in the three years I trained Barcelona B, all my opponents played the counter-attack game against us.”
    • 19.35 Parma boss Franco Colomba is expecting a tough test from the visitors. He said: "Roma has its problems. We play at home and want to try to get a result. We will fight for the whole game."
