    Time:90'
    • Siena
    • Lazio
    • 90+2' There goes the final whistle. A 4-0 win for Siena. Lazio were awful, and pay the price for a wretched effort in the first period.
    • 89' We are into two minutes of time added on.
    • 88' Lulic takes out Mannini with a late challenge. Fortunate to escape a booking.
    • 87' Siena just keeping the ball as the minutes tick down. This game was well and truly over at the break. Has been a bit better from Lazio in this half after that shambolic effort in the first period.
    • 85' Away from home, Edy Reja’s side remain unbeaten this season before this match (five wins and two draws); only Juventus are yet to lose their first away game alongside the Biancocelesti. That all changes tonight.
    • 84' Sculli and coach Reja continue to exchange words on the Lazio bench. Sculli is furious about being replaced.
    • 83' Del Grosso has been booked for taking a late swipe at Biava off the ball.
    • 81' Siena will move above Fiorentina on goal difference into 14th place in the table with this win.
    • 79' Reginaldo is felled by Biava as Siena are awarded a free-kick in the visiting half.
    • 78' Ferreira Reginaldo replaces Emanuele Calaiò for Siena. Home fans in party mood.
    • 77' A few of the visiting fans are heading for the exit door. They have seen enough this evening with their side 4-0 down. This has been a real trouncing.
    • 76' GOAL! Destro rises to power home the header from Del Grosso's cross. Poor goalkeeping by Carrizo as the ball slipped under him. A 4-0 lead now for Siena.
    • 74' Change coming for Lazio as Sculli departs to be replaced by Mobido Diakite. Sculli is not happy with theat decision.
    • 73' Stankevicius brings down Codrea, and Siena have a free-kick in their own half.
    • 72' Difficult to see how Lazio are going to grab a consolation goal from this match with Udinese leaving plenty of bodies back.
    • 71' Destro brings down Stankevicius with a late tackle. Bit of frustration by the Siena forward. Lucky to escape a booking.
    • 70' Stankevicius races back to make the tackle on Destro. Decent tackle by the big stopper, and one that had to be made.
    • 69' Destro continues to seek his second goal of the night. Uncorks one from 22 yards, but the ball flies wide of the goal.
    • 68' Sculli clatters Brienza with a late tackle, and he will be booked for that effort.
    • 67' Siena content to go backwards with the ball. In no hurry to go anywhere in any great hurry.
    • 65' Lazio with 14 shots at goal compared to Siena's 12, but it is the home side who have the three goals from the game. Lazio look like they have settled for a 3-0 loss.
    • 64' Lazio with plenty of bodies behind the ball as Angelo is caught offisde after a surging run down a wing.
    • 63' Another change for Siena as Paul Codrea replaces Alessandro Gazzi.
    • 61' Angelo forced to concede a corner, but the move comes to nothing. Ledesma is then chopped to the ground by Bolzoni.
    • 59' Destro on the break. Great pace and movement. Gets the shot in, but Carrizo dives to keep the shot out. Siena chasing a fourth here.
    • 58' More adventurous play by Siena sees Destro flick a header over the bar from Brienza's eye-catching delivery.
    • 57' Brienza clips a swerving shot at goal. Ball flies well wide of goal, but Lazio are in danger from the break.
    • 56' Lazio seem to be having more joy with 10 men than 11. Siena happy to sit back, soak up the pressure and hit on the break.
    • 55' Biava rises in the home area, but can only head wide of goal. Sums up Lazio's night so far.
    • 54' De Grosso seemed to handle Stankevicius's header, but the referee says no. That could easily have been a penalty to the visitors.
    • 53' Stankevicius trying to get on the end of a free-kick, but he is crowded out as Siena clear. A lot more spirit about Lazio in this half.
    • 52' Rossettini has been booked for taking down Klose. Can have no complaints there.
    • 51' Destro meets the cross from Angelo. Got the direction on the ball, but straight down the throat of Carrizo. Better play by Siena.
    • 50' Change coming for Siena as Daniele Mannini takes over from Paolo Grossi.
    • 49' Lazio have Alvaro González replacing Lorik Cana.
    • 48' Lovely run by Gonzalez into the Siena box. Picks out Klose, but the German striker nods wide when it looked easier to score. How did he miss that?
    • 47' Biava trying to latch onto a ball at the back post, but just failing to steer the ball towards the Siena goal. Goalkick to the home side.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period. Lazio facing a long 45 minutes with 10 men.
    • 45+3' There goes the whistle for the break! Siena holding a 3-0 lead, and all the aces with Lazio now a man down. Long way back from here.
    • 45+2' GOAL! Calaio with a copy of his first goal. Substitute keeper Carrizo dived to his left, but could not keep it out. A 3-0 lead now for Siena. Surely all over.
    • 45+1' PENALTY TO SIENA! Destro is brought down by Bizarri as he dashed in on goal. Bizarri has been sent off as Lazio's night goes from bad to worse.
    • 44' Two minutes to be added to the first half.
    • 43' Sculli rises to head wide from eight yards out. Inches wide of goal. Sculli appeals for a corner, but the referee says that the keeper did not get a touch.
    • 42' Gazzi is fouled by Cana as Lazio try to find a way back into this match before the break.
    • 41' Cisse with another disappointing delivery from out wide. Had plenty of time and space, but the accuracy was not there.
    • 40' Ledesma drills an effort well wide of the home goal from 30 yards out. Nice play by Radu, but always difficult to score from that range.
    • 38' Lazio with almost 60 percent of possession, but nothing to show for their dominance on the ball.
    • 36' Pegolo forced to look lively to nudge a Cisse header behind his goal. Comfortable enough save for the Siena goalkeeper.
    • 35' Destro fouls Scaloni going for a high ball, and Lazio have a free-kick deep in their half.
    • 34' A pretty forgettable evening for Lazio so far. Klose had space in the area from Ledesma's cross, but a poor first touch sees the ball end up in the hands of Pegolo.
    • 32' GOAL! Lovely penalty by Calaio as he slips the ball beyond Bizarri to the keeper's left for the the second goal. Keeper guessed right, but was never getting here. A 2-0 lead now for the home team.
    • 31' PENALTY TO SIENA! Stankevicius clips Brienza with a late tackle and that is an easy decision for the referee to give.
    • 30' Pegolo thumps the ball down the pitch as Siena seek this second goal.
    • 29' Brazil midfielder Hernanes is on the bench for Lazio after a hamstring problem. His compatriots Dias and Matuzalem returned late from the Christmas break due to a combination of family problems, visa issues and cancelled flights. Dias is ready to take the bench but midfielder Matuzalem's family issues were "serious" according to boss Edy Reja. He is not in the squad.
    • 28' Scaloni sees a cross headed on by Cisse, but Sculli lifts the shot over the bar. He was unmarked seven yards out. Should have been the leveller.
    • 26' Cana's shot from the edge of the area is saved by Pegolo before Sculli is deemed to be offside. Game raging from end to end.
    • 25' Siena not lacking adventure with Grossi whacking an effort over the bar from distance.
    • 24' Siena will ease their relegation fears with a win here. They would move up to 15th in the table on 18 points - six clear of the bottom three spots.
    • 23' Ledesma drills the loose ball up the park from a corner. Lazio falling down with their final ball into the middle.
    • 22' Cisse with the cross ball from out wide, but poor delivery as Angelo just whacks clear.
    • 21' Siena have always scored at home against Lazio in Serie A, and that trend continues with Destro's opening goal.
    • 20' Calaio bounds to the edge of the area. Cracks the shot at goal, but just wide of the target. Fine play by the Siena skipper.
    • 19' Cisse wallops a volley over the bar from the edge of the area. Goalkick to Siena.
    • 18' Sculli throws over an inviting cross. Plenty of air underneath the ball, but Pegolo keeps his eye on it to collect the cross.
    • 17' Cana back on his feet after treatment, and we can continue with the play in this one.
    • 15' Siena had not scored in their last 453 minutes, since Gazzi scored against Atalanta on November 20.
    • 14' Cana goes in to challenge Pegolo, and comes off worse. He is going to need a spot of treatment with the referee halting play.
    • 13' Just to confirm Destro picked up a yellow card for taking his shirt off after that goal.
    • 12' Sculli takes out Angelo with a late challenge. And that will be a free-kick to the home side.
    • 11' Biava tried to get back to make the tackle, but just couldn't get there as Destro raced away to celebrate by taking his top off.
    • 10' GOAL! Destro scores for Siena. Superb run and finish as the ball beats the dive of Bizarri. Siena have the lead. Well deserved.
    • 9' Lazio break to the other end, but Cisse can only lift the ball over the bar under pressure from the home defence. Was an opportunity, but well over.
    • 8' Siena certainly piling plenty of bodies forward as Calaio gets a shot in under pressure, but Bizarri dives low to make the stop.
    • 7' So close to the opening goal as Gazzi sees a shot spin wide of goal from 25 yards out. Almost the opener. Inches away.
    • 6' Ball almost breaks to Cisse in the middle of the home area, but Siena scramble it clear.
    • 5' More super play by Klose to win a corner as Grosso is forced to come across to make the tackle.
    • 4' Klose throws over a cross from out wide. Nice delivery, but an easy take for Pegolo in the home goal.
    • 3' Djibril Cisse has not scored since his debut in September, but he is back in the starting line-up for Lazio alongisde Klose.

Drawing 0-0 in the Tuscan derby against Fiorentina in their last game before the break, Siena remain winless in their last seven games (five defeats and two draws)."
