  1. Goodbye

    .

    So, the bragging rights in Rome belong to Roma as they hammer Lazio in the Derby della Capitale. Many thanks for your company. Standby for a big week of Champions League action. Until next time...

  2. Strength to strength

    Roma's season goes from strength to strength.

    Luciano Spalletti's side have won nine of the last 10 Serie A games.

    It's not going to be enough to catch leaders Juventus but they are in terrific form with seven matches remaining. 

  3. FULL-TIME - Lazio 1-4 Roma

    Roma strengthen their hopes of playing in next season's Champions League after a comprehensive derby win over Lazio. 

  4. RED CARD - Wesley Hoedt (Lazio)

    Nightmare end for Lazio. They're getting hammered by their fierce rivals and now they will finish with 10 men after Wesley Hoedt is sent off for a second yellow card.

  5. Post update

    Lazio 1-4 Roma

    Roma legend Francesco Totti is not going to get on the pitch. 

    Will the 39-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, appear in another Derby della Capitale?

    He's laughing and joking on the bench as the celebrations begin for Roma.

  6. Post update

    Lazio 1-4 Roma

    Six minutes of added time.

    Lazio 1-4 Roma

    There wasn't too many fans inside the Stadio Olimpico to start with but there's a wave of sky blue shirts heading for the exits now.

    Roma have out-fought, out-muscled and out-witted their fierce rivals to win the Rome derby.

  8. GOAL - Lazio 1-4 Roma

    Diego Perotti

    Roma are really rubbbing salt into Lazio's wounds now.

    Shocking defending as several sky blue shirts back off as Diego Perotti drives at the Lazio goal before firing low into the net. 

  9. Post update

    Lazio 1-3 Roma

    Wojciech Szczesny owes Alessandro Florenzi a beer. 

    Szczesny's glaring error let Lazio back into this but  Florenzi's goal has surely settled this derby.

  10. GOAL - Lazio 1-3 Roma

    Alessandro Florenzi

    All over as Alessandro Florenzi breaks the hearts of Lazio's fans.

    A Roma corner is only half cleared and Florenzi, playing at right-back, sticks out a leg to bend the ball beyond Federico Marchetti.

    Lovely goal.

  11. Post update

    Lazio 1-2 Roma

    Those fans that opted to boycott this...they're missing a terrific finale. Frantic stuff in Rome.

  12. Post update

    Lazio 1-2 Roma

    Roma have gone to pieces since going 2-0 ahead. Lazio did nothing for 60-odd minutes but have dominated since.

    Is there going to be a final twist in the final 10 minutes?

  13. GOAL - Lazio 1-2 Roma

    Marco Parolo

    Perhaps that's why Arsene Wenger decided to send Wojciech Szczesny out on loan! The keeper makes a total mess trying to intercept a cross for Miroslav Klose, and Parolo Marco slides in to score. Game on.

    Lazio score
  14. Post update

    Lazio 0-2 Roma

    Players dropping likes flies all over the pitch.

    There's still another 15 minutes or so to go but Roma are already starting to run down the clock. 

  15. Post update

    Lazio 0-2 Roma

    For the first time Lazio are giving this a good go. They've come alive since falling 2-0 behind but have they left it too late?

  16. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Lazio 0 -2 Roma

    Can Lazio mount a fightback?

    Encouraging signs from the hosts as Wesley Hoedt heads against the bar from a corner before Wojciech Szczesny gets a vital finger-tip to Marco Parolo's header.

  17. GOAL - Lazio 0-2 Roma

    Edin Dzeko

    He's only been on the pitch a couple of minutes but has Edin Dzeko won the Derby della Capitale for Roma?

    Diego Perotti lets fly from distance - his effort bounces off the upright and into Dzeko's path, but he keeps his cool to sweep home the rebound.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Lazio 0-1 Roma

    Roma react to Lazio's changes by making one of their own - former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko comes on for goalscorer Stephan El Shaarawy.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Lazio 0-1 Roma

    Lazio need to do something quickly. There's only one goal between the teams but they really don't look like getting back into this.

    Boss Stefano Pioli turns to World Cup winner Miroslav Klose and forward Keita who come on for Matri and Candreva.

  20. Szczesny to stay?

    Lazio 0-1 Roma

    .

    Wojciech Szczesny suggested before the game he could stay at Roma next season rather than settle for a place on the Arsenal bench.

    The 25-year-old Polish keeper has started 27 Serie A games since moving to Italy's capital on loan before the start of the season.

    "Will I stay at Roma? For me, football always comes first,” said Szczesny on Roma Radio. “I have the confidence of everyone here.

    “When you have the trust of your team-mates, the coach and the fans, as well as playing every Sunday, then that can only be for the best."
