Coach Reja started with this 11 in the first half: Marchetti, Scaloni, Diakitè, Stankevicus, Lulic, Bresciano, Matuzalem, Zàrate, Floccari, Sculli and Rocchi.

Very early in the game Lazio scored, a Scaloni cross found Zarate who scored the first of the game.

As the rain was pouring down, the crowd had to wait till the 28th minute for the next goal.

Sculli ran down the left side, his cross found Rocchi who beat the Union Ripa goalie.

Five minutes later, again a Sculli run on to Floccari, and in between three defenders Floccari found the net, 0-3.

Cissé with the ball, finding Klose who launched Hernanes down deep, and a swift touch of the Brazilian gave Lazio the 0-5.

Then 2 goals in 3 minutes. Konko running down the right side, cross to Mauri, control on his chest, volley and goal, 0-6.

Next minute, Brocchi finds Cissé running deep, a low shot of the Frenchman beating the Union Ripa goalie, the 0-7 and first goal for Cissé.
