    A mere spectator for most of the game. Couldn't do much about the goal either.

  • Mattia Cassani

    Federico Balzaretti

    Good display from the left-back, he got forward well and his deliveries caused issues for the Lazio defence.

    3.00

    Mauricio Pinilla

    Was a real handful with his movement but despite this Lazio coped well with the striker.

Substitutions

  • Massimo Maccarone

    3.00

    Massimo Maccarone

    Was lively when he came on but he wasted a number of opportunities.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner

    3.00

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    Had a tough time against Balzertti but coped admirably and lucky not to have given away a penalty.

  • Giuseppe Biava
    40
    17
    3.00

    Giuseppe Biava

    Silly challenge to earn himself a second yellow. Pinilla was going nowhere. Put his team under real pressure as a result.

  • Andrè Dias

    4.00

    Andrè Dias Top of the Match

    Brilliant volley to seal the win, coupled with a strong performance at the back. He was magnificent today.

  • Cristian Brocchi
    47
    5
    3.50

    Cristian Brocchi

    His usual tenacious self, he made sure that although Palermo had plenty of the ball they had to decide what they were going to do very quickly.

  • Cristian Ledesma
    46
    4
    3.00

    Cristian Ledesma

    Provided an inch perfect free kick for Dias' goal and looked very assured when on the ball.

  • Mauro Zárate
    79
    7
    3.00

    Mauro Zárate

    Eased the pressure on his defence by holding the ball well, he even managed to partake in some defensive duties as well. It seems he is coming back to form after a prolonged slump.

  • Hernanes
    68
    8
    3.00

    Hernanes

    Played a few delightful balls forward and was classy when he was in possession but taken of after Biava's sending off.

  • Stefano Mauri
    50
    14
    3.00

    Stefano Mauri

    Should have scored to make it 2-0, that would have killed the game instead he dallied and allowed Bovo time to get back.

  • Sergio Floccari
    45

    3.50

    Sergio Floccari

    Held the ball up well and made a nuisance of himself.
