    Time:90'
    • Parma
    • Lazio
    • 90+4' FULL TIME: Parma record a big win to go 13th - Lazio ordinary, and their third place and Champions League place looks a little less secure.
    • 90+3' Biabiany picks out Giovinco on the left, but his cross is cleared. That should be the last meaningful action of the match, however.
    • 90+2' Another late change - Parma swap Floccari for Okaka.
    • 90+1' Hernanes splashes a volleyed cross across the goal, and it runs out of play near the corner flag. Three minutes of stoppage time to play, and Parma won't rush the goal kick.
    • 90' Lucarelli comes straight off, replaced by Santacroce.
    • 89' Lucarelli clambers all over the back of Ledesma and picks up a yellow card. Set piece chance - something surely has to come of it if Lazio have any hopes of pulling off a draw.
    • 88' Giovinco all on his own and surrounded up front, and he loses the ball.
    • 87' And shortly after Mirante claims an aerial delivery with authority. He's done well, and his Parma team are looking just a touch tired after a big performance. Time ticking down.
    • 86' Kozak has an effort from distance but Mirante has no problem stopping that one.
    • 85' Alfaro picks out Hernanes, but the cross is a poor one - he had willing runners, and missed them all.
    • 84' GIOVINCO'S EFFORT BLOCKED! Floccari surged down the left, opted for the pass rather than the shot, and the man who would surely deserve a goal has his shot blocked.
    • 83' Parma clear up a long ball forward from Lazio, and break down the left.
    • 82' Giovinco just attracting one foul after another - it's the only way Lazio can live with him. Scaloni goes into the book for dragging him back.
    • 81' Parma do a terrible job with a set piece on the right - it's blasted out to the left and goes out on the full.
    • 80' GIOVINCO SO CLOSE! He takes the ball from halfway, turns Scaloni twice as he surges into the box and then forces a save from Marchetti - what a goal that would have been if he could have converted!
    • 79' Very poor challenge from Valdes on Hernanes - and that produces a yellow card. There've been a few challenges in this second half that could have attracted a card.
    • 78' Some of the floodlights have gone out again! This time the referee waves play on. We're getting to the end of this encounter come what may...
    • 77' Some sore bodies out there - Alfaro looks uncomfortable but cannot be subbed off anyhow.
    • 76' Floccari in all kinds of space on the left, but lacks support. Biabiany and Giovinco cannot get into the box quickly enough for a cross.
    • 75' Giovinco caught offside as Parma look to break at pace.
    • 74' Hernanes caught by Valdes, but carries on, and in frustration clips Zaccardo.
    • 73' Biabiany breaks with pace, but his pass to Giovinco is overhit.
    • 72' What else do Lazio have in the tank? They have no more substitutes available.
    • 71' PARMA MAKE IT THREE! Giovinco's tasty delivery, Floccari unmarked and sidefoots in off the post from close range! Job done for Parma now?
    • 70' Cycnical play from both sides to keep Giovinco and Hernanes down. Parma have a free kick from the right in a good position.
    • 69' Hernanes replaces Mauri in Lazio's last substitution. He's a creative force - can he make the difference?
    • 68' KOZAK CLOSE! His header from the corner is aimed low - and it bounces into the ground and over the bar! Big chance for Lazio to level - gone!
    • 67' Mauri does so well to get into space on the left, but makes a clumsy effort of centring the ball. Lazio lucky to get a corner.
    • 66' Valdes tries a ranging ball forward but it has far too much on it. Still quite dark - darker than at the start of his match. But everyone wants to see the match continue.
    • 65' Gobbi and Galoppa combine, before Gonzalez then robs Gobbi of the ball. Those two have been tussling all evening.
    • 64' Parma had the momentum going into the delay - they need to regain it now.
    • 63' As you were - the match resumes.
    • - The referee talking to both captains, and we look set to resume after the wait. Drop ball to start us off.
    • - No sign of action at the moment. The players are not leaving the field, but the delay now coming up for five minutes.
    • - The pictures make it look playable, but cameras can enhance the light a great deal. At the moment, we're going nowhere.
    • - The lights are a little bit better now - but exactly how bright does it need to be for play to continue?
    • - Pause here as we try to get the lights sorted.
    • 63' The lights have gone off in the Stadio Ennio Tardini!
    • 62' Alfaro replaces Rocchi as Lazio make another change.
    • 61' Gobbi dispossessed by Gonzalez and Lazio get on the move again.
    • 60' But it's Parma who continue to create the chances, and it's Giovinco who's been the difference between the sides - a real livewire.
    • 59' Lazio dominating possession more and more - now they've had 63% of the ball.
    • 58' PARMA CLOSE AGAIN! Biabiany has his shot blocked and that is another let off for Lazio.
    • 57' MARCHETTI HAS TO MAKE THE SAVE! Deflected cross from the left from Gobbi, and suddenly the Lazio question realises that it's goalbound - he does superbly to stop it.
    • 56' Mauri and Rocchi combine, but a combination of Paletta and Morrone end the move.
    • 55' It's been a more sedate opening to the second half. Plenty at stake for both sides, mind.
    • 54' Giovinco shouting for a penalty against Biava! No, maybe not - the Lazio man is outside the area and it's not hit him on the arm. Other than that, stonewall...
    • 53' Giovinco wins a free kick; impressive, given how few options he had open to him.
    • 52' Gobbi with a quick throw down towards the byline. He gets Giovinco on the ball straight away.
    • 51' Handball from Morrone and Lazio have a free kick from deep.
    • 50' Donadoni issuing some angry instructions from the sidelines. Parma wary that they could squander this advantage, and they've had chances to make it three and not taken them.
    • 49' Mirante with the ball safely in his hands, but his clearance is a poor one - overhit, and straight to Marchetti at the other end.
    • 48' Teasing ball from Gonzalez, and that forces a corner for the visitors.
    • 47' Lazio in need of a big second half. They have it within them, but they also have a knack of underperfoming at times this season. Which Lazio will turn up?
    • 46' The second half begins!
    • - Parma make a change, with Mariga replaced by Morrone.

    • 45+2' HALF TIME: Lazio heave the ball forward but the whistle sounds before it reaches the box. An entertaining first half and the second could go either way.
    • 45+1' Two minutes of stoppages to play at the end of a lively half. Ledesma has been dispossessed too easily on more than one occasion.
    • 45' Ledesma caught out by Giovinco and Parma surge forward - the move ends with Galloppa HEADING AGONISINGLY WIDE! So close to the third goal for the hosts!
    • 44' Not intentional from the looks of things, but Gobbi not especially apologetic for it, which doesn't help.
    • 43' Gobbi and Gonzalez have a frank exchange of views after the Parma man caught him with the elbow.
    • 42' Ugly defending from Parma - far from convincing - but when Gonzalez pulls on Giovinco's shirt the hosts win a free kick which eases the pressure.
    • 41' Rocchi's shot blocked by Paletta, and Lazio have a corner.
    • 40' Mariga's ball for Galoppa just agonisingly beyond him - might have fared better if the pacy Biabiany was out there waiting on the right...
    • 39' Ledesma picks out Mauri with a superb long pass to the right, and the midfielder looks for a way to cross the ball in.
    • 38' No shortage of action in this first half. Mirante now with a goal kick as Parma look to settle down after conceding.
    • 37' Scaloni, the substitute, hasn't scored in a professional match since 2007.
    • 36' LAZIO SCORE! SCALONI PULLS ONE BACK! Scaloni drills a shot from distance, it takes a wicked deflection that leaves Mirante stranded, and that's a lifeline for Lazio.
    • 35' Mariga and Biabiany swap passes and try to build down the right, but Mauri cuts it off.
    • 34' Lazio's possession stats getting better - they're now up to 64% of the time on the ball, but no goals to show for it.
    • 33' Valdes tries one from distance, and perhaps he should have taken a little longer with his effort - in the end he snatches at it rashly.
    • 32' Parma have quietened down since their opening salvo, but they're still a dangerous prospect on the break.
    • 31' GIOVINCO CLOSE! Ledesma's touch let him down and a super pass plays in Giovinco - his angled shot sails past the far post. Tricky, but he had a chance to make it three...
    • 30' Yellow for Konko for dissent after a foul goes against him. For just a moment the referee looked like he was about to send him off. Konko must have been worried when he saw the red and yellow come out at the same time...
    • 29' GIOVINCO CLOSE! Good half-volley from a tight angle - he was low on options and in the end Marchetti covered - but a decent effort in the circumstances.
    • 28' The game is quite even now - but Parma have already built a sizeable advantage. At least Lazio are now in the contest.
    • 27' Oh dear - that was horrible. Hit low, blocked by the wall. Wasted effort from Radu.
    • 26' Dangerous free kick for Lazio. Radu stands over it.
    • 25' Rocchi caught by Lucarelli - or at least he feels he is. Parma are the ones awarded the foul.
    • 24' And they're not the first side in the top four to struggle today - earlier Milan were held at Catania. Report
    • 23' Lazio have had 57% of the possession so far - but they haven't made it count.
    • 22' Konko misses the corner having got into a little space - and Gonzalez catches Giovinco to give Parma some breathing room.
    • 21' Ledesma takes a little bit of time out of the game, setting up his team to go forward. When he does strike the ball, it's nodded away for a corner.
    • 20' Another free kick for Lazio - they're just settling down a touch here.
    • 19' Ledesma swings on in - and MAURI MISSES! Lovely delivery, Mauri gets his head to the ball, but glances it - if he'd made a full contact Lazio would surely have pulled one back.
    • 18' Kozak wins a free kick for the visitors. And another follows shortly after Radu is caught. Chance for the away side.
    • 17' Dias was struggling after that coming together with Giovinco (and his own goalkeeper) but still - changing the set-up so early suggests Reja is not going to put up with this start.
    • 16' Lazio make an early change - Scaloni comes on for Dias and it looks as if they're reverting to three at the back. Bold.
    • 15' And again, as the short corner is blocked off by Rocchi.
    • 14' Dias injured here after defening in his own penalty area against Giovinco. Parma will have the corner when we restart.
    • 13' Lazio's evening going from bad to worse here. They are under pressure from Napoli and Udinese for that Champions League spot.
    • 12' PARMA HAVE THE BALL IN THE NET! It's two! Floccari heads a rogue effort from Paletta back on target and Marchetti can do nothing about it. Lazio appeal for offside, but it wasn't - Floccari was behind the keeper, but two defenders were playing him on.
    • 10' HALF A CHANCE FOR PARMA! But Biabiany cannot get a boot on the cross after super work from Floccari.
    • 9' Despite the goal, it's a stop-start affair at the Ennio Tardini.
    • 8' The power of that goal - as it stands Parma would surge from 17th to 13th tonight!
    • 7' Mariga a bit of a surprise returnee; he had been an injury doubt for Donadoni's midfield.
    • 6' Lazio's task just got a bit bigger - and they're without the injured Mario Klose as they seek goals.
    • 5' MARIGA SCORES! He tucks in from just outside the box after a header from Floccari is well-saved by Marchetti - great composure, and Parma have the advantage!
    • 4' Slow start to this one - Lazio need the win to cement third place in Serie A, while Parma are too close to the relegation battle for comfort. Standings
    • 3' Zaccardo takes a throw down the line as Parma try to get out of their own half.
    • 2' Kozak and Mirante clash going for the ball - both tumble to the ground.
    • 1' Away we go! Parma kick us off.
    • 19:40 PARMA: Mirante, Paletta, Lucarelli, Zaccardo, Galloppa, Mariga, Valdes, Gobbi, Biabiany, Floccari, Giovinco - subs - Morrone, Pavarini, Okaka Chuka, Santacroce, Valiani, Jonathan /// LAZIO: Marchetti, Biava, Dias, Radu, Konko, Ledesma, Mauri, Matuzalem, Gonzalez, Kozak, Rocchi - subs - Brocchi, Scaloni, Alfaro, Cana, Bizarri, Candreva, Hernanes
    • 19:35 Edoardo Reja: "We hope to do well, we have a difficult schedule. We expect to make the game special. I expect a great game."
    • 19:35 Roberto Donadoni: "From Parma I want 110%. All I want is for us to give our all. We have prepared, and we have to embarrass our opponents."
    • 19:30 Good evening and welcome to live text commentary from Serie A, where Parma host Lazio.
